We didn't feel like it was quite cold or snowy enough where we live, so we drove two hours north to spend the weekend with some friends. They have a cabin "up north." So, we had one cabin containing four adults, three kids, and four dogs (two Boxers and two Boston Terriers). Oh, and one bathroom. I thought it would be fun to kick off the weekend by getting my van stuck in a snow bank as soon as we arrived at the cabin Friday night. I need to put some monster truck tires on that bad boy for next time.
We had planned to go sledding and whatnot but the below-zero windchills mostly took care of that plan. The kids played outside for a bit but then came inside once they couldn't feel their cheeks anymore. We mostly stayed indoors and played games and ate. We also enjoyed some grown-up beverages while the kids played on their various gaming devices. On Saturday we found an old-school bowling alley "in town" and played a couple of games. It must have been the unrelenting winter weather that caused me to bowl two under-100 games.
All in all, it was a fun weekend. I'm just bummed that I didn't get a chance to wear the snow pants that I picked up for $3.99 at a thrift store. Damn.
