Family and Mountains- doesn’t get much better than this

I LOVE the mountains and I adore my family.  This week we are spending time with the husband’s family up in the gorgeous mountains in the Taos Ski Valley.  We have been coming for the past 7 years and have created many traditions.  In fact, the husband’s family started coming up here when he was 7 years old.  With the exception of a brief hiatus during his college years, they have come up here almost every year since. 

Our trip to the mountains is all about tradition. One tradition is the annual cookout a quarter mile down from the cabin.  We settle ourselves by the brook and have a good ole camp fire with brats and dogs.  We even warm the chili on a hot rock placed in the fire.  This year’s campfire had an added bonus when Uncle Lynn brought his mandolin.  How much fun for us all!  The folk music definitely completed our campfire as we had smores oozing from our hands.

Have I told you how much I love the mountains? And family?

    Beautiful! I’m consulting the MASTER Pro for your design – it’s looking good, but we are just having difficulty with the coding – this is not our norm, and I’m sorry. 🙂 Had to build it from the ground up…and we want to make sure all the code is correct. Should be up and live by Friday night or Saturday morning.

    Enjoy your day – try not to check on it…lol.

    karen 🙂
