Cabin Fever

This weekend Valerie invited Heather and I to her parent's cabin. The cabin was north of Payson somewhere. I never knew Arizona could be beautiful. There were so many trees, I felt like I was in Oregon again.

We had a great weekend. We played lots of games. I think we played Catch Phrase for 2 hours one night. I love Valerie and Heather. I also love to meet people's that weird?

:: Day 1 ::

- This is the puzzle that Valerie's dad said would take us the whole weekend to figure out, IF we could figure it out. We put it together in less then 2 minutes. Never underestimate us! We're the puzzle masters.

- Valerie's dad also didn't think we'd be able to flip coasters and then catch them. We proved him wrong yet again, we both flipped 8.

- Are these not the scariest animals you've ever seen? They are some kind of weird, wild pig. Not a wild boar, they corrected me several times when I called them that. I was so grossed out by these. Who would mount those? yuck.

They had so many mounted animals on the walls. Caribou, bears, "wild boar", elk and deer. I'm probably missing was crazy. The are very into hunting. Valerie is a hardcore.

:: Day 2::

- Morning at the cabin.

- Us being cute, as usual.

We went on a Quad ride. Heather hadn't rode a 4-wheeler for a while and this was one you had to shift. It was quite a rough ride at the beginning. I almost fell off a couple times. I think Valerie's dad was worried. And man was it freezing!!

- Woo hoo!

- It was freezing. I have 2 sweatshirts, 3 shirts and a scarf on.

- The Trio.

- We decorated their Christmas tree!

:: Day 3 ::

- Valerie and I went on quad ride to drop off an Elk hide. We ate that Elk for breakfast in the most delicious breakfast burrito I've ever had in my life! Elk meat is good.

- In the woods.

- I LOVE Quads.

- Gettin' ready to leave. You can see some of the dead animals mounted on the walls.

- I love this picture. Even Bella (the dog) is looking @ the camera.

- They even kill the reindeer.

- On the way home I made them stop at all the antique shops in the little towns we passed thru. Outside of one of the shops there was this never ending "quarter horse". This thing lasted thru Valerie's photoshoot, mine, and Heather's. We eventually walked inside and the thing was still going. You really get your money's worth.

I now have a new appreciation towards Arizona. It's not all desert!

Those animals do kinda creep me out! I don't know if I would be able to sleep with them looking at me! Cabins are so fun.
