Mom and Dad didn't live to see the new generation of our family, but it seemed important to bring Sofia and Marco to the cabin. Aunt Brenda was prepared.
She introduced Marco to Oliver, the dog.
She entertained Sofia with a pumpkin painting activity. Brenda, our sister-in-law, is the best. We love her dearly.
After a hearty breakfast the next morning, Ray and Steve did the dishes, then, with Cayo's help they cut down a tree and cut it into firewood. The cabin brings out the lumberjack in the menfolk.
We woke up to a skiff of snow on the porch, frosting the recently fallen aspen leaves. Views from the porch:
every season. It is one of the best places on earth to be for me.
