Camping, with a hot tub

So this past weekend was Awesome. We went "camping" with a group of our friends here:

That would be a really nice, 2 bedroom cabin with a full kitchen and a hot tub. We were "roughing it" though - we didn’t have HBO. The cabin is somewhere in West Virginia which is magically 5 hours from everywhere. It was great. Good friends, good wine, good food. And, really, a hot tub in the snow is just so much fun.

I managed to stay off of my foot for most of the weekend – but I did take a short little walk in the woods. And since everything was so picturesque with the snow and all we thought it would be fun to take some "senior picture" shots. Check it out:

And the “hand next to the face”

I think I pretty much rocked out the “sitting on a mossy rock” shot:

Then we found this really neat frozen stream bed….

Which was the perfect surface for snow angels:

A good portion of the weekend was spent playing old school Nintendo. Seriously. We are such geeks – but Mario 3 is every bit as fun as I remembered it being. Taboo, however, was the weekend favorite. Best quote ever:

Osam: "It’s like a chicken only bigger"
Jason: "Alligator!"

Heh. Funtimes.

Then last night Matt and I went to a wine tasting at the Atmosphere Gallery in Tremont. We found out about it through the Cleveland Wineaux Meet-up group which I joined on a whim while playing around online. I’m so glad we went! We got to meet the artists who are currently displaying pieces at the gallery – including Paul Duda who’s photography of Cleveland is simply amazing. We will definitely be going to more of the Wineaux events.

Tonight Matt has a late meeting so my plan is to stay off of my foot, watch exceedingly bad TV, and get back to the neglected knitting….

    And how much wine exactly did it take to make the senior photos seem like a good idea? Looks like you guys had a great time. I'm officially envious!

  11. What great looking snow angels. And I have to say, that is about as "roughing it" as I like to get too. Gone are the days of hubby and I in a tent sleeping on the ground. Looks like you had a wonderful time.
