Winter Escape

Dad can't go very long without an adventure and seeing as the helicopter didn't fly last year, these crazies were itching to get back up on untouched terrain.  Denten and I flew the coop and headed to Idaho to find winter.  We stayed in Teton Springs, near Victor and Driggs, just over the mountain from Jackson, WY.  It was heartbreaking that the weather didn't allow the helicopter to fly... well, heartbreaking for the hard-core.  For me it just meant that I had more ski buddies at Grand Targhee.

Sisters.  We were missing one.





The ski gang.

Kate, Wade and Dan were missed all weekend.



The second day the chopper was having issues so we made the most of a bummer situation with a trip to the spa and shopping in Jackson.







We met this disturbing creature on the way home.  He's lucky his wife appreciates his facial hair because the rest of us are not so kind.



Time away from children is necessary occasionally.  It was so nice and can't happen again too soon.

the sister you're missing was just sitting in the desert on the couch in her hot pink kjus pants, eating chocolate covered cinnamon bears and nursing her broken heart. but don't worry about her, she'll be fine. just fine.
