Day 2 – Part Uno…

16 Jan
We’re at the cabin now getting a lunch and warm ourselves break:)  The morning started out beautifully with Steve making a wonderful breakfast…

...of eggs with onion, tomato, and cheese and potatos! The boys ate it up like crazy...Gage LOVED the potatos and loves the black ones:)

I was able to read a great series of books I’m reading with some delicious coffee…

...the books are written by an ex-DNR officer and I'm hooked!

…then while I got ready the real fun started for the boys and Steve as they went out on the ice in front of cabin…

...these pics are actually last evening, but since I was inside this morning I'm posting these, virtually would be the same pics last night vs. this morning:)

...the boys were dying to get out there again this morning...:)

...this is our cabin from the ice...the one on the left...

…then we were off to the Lower Falls…but I had to stop off at my favorite little store first, the Blueberry Patch…

Gage looking cute with his hair all a mess after taking off at hat and looking at greeting cards:D

Garret checking out the books...he particularly liked some lighthouse ones...

…ok, now we’re onto the Falls…

...as always, it's really a pretty drive...it's only 10 miles from cabin to the Falls...

…once you get to the Lower Falls you have a .8 walk to the falls…they plow the little parking area, but everything else you just walk through the snow on ungroomed trails, so, it’s more like an adventure…here’s some pics on our walk there…

...the beginning...

...entering the woods...

...we all love making snow avalanches!!

...we arrive at the Lower Falls...

...Gage slides to the water:)...the Lower falls have to falls, one on the left and one on the right...in the summer you can rent little boats to go in the water area...in the winter you can walk down a trail to the lower right falls...

...notice before we walk down the trail it's not really snowing and you can see the falls behind the guys...

...it's about .3 miles to be able to get up close to the Lower Falls...

...Gage resting on snow covered bench:)

...the Lower Falls really are beautiful and pics don't do it justice...

...good pic:)

Cute:)

...double cute:)

...Gage doing snow angels:)

...more of the Lower Falls...the mist freezes and forms these weird ice formations...

…now as we began to head back on the trail the snow just started coming down like crazy!

...this is what was going on...the snow started coming down great and the wind picked up and snow was falling from trees...

...so by the time we walked only .3 miles and got back to the main area of the Lower Falls we could not see either the left or right falls...

...we're about half-way to car...

...taking a break...

...back in Jeep with lots of snow in hair:)

...we were excited we had our snow adventure and looked forward to hot chocolate and spaghetti...:)

In a little while, we will be at the Upper Falls and have dinner at the restaurant/pub which is beautiful and has such great food!

    We sure are enjoying the pics!!! It looks sooooooooooooooo…. beautiful!! It’s something how the snow picked up and was so that you couldn’t even see that well. The boys look like they are having fun with you and Steve:) I think it’s so cool how you can stay in touch this way. Love you all, Ma. Pa sends his love:) Pa says it looks like a scene from Chronicles of Narnia!
