We spent a glorious week at Clay's family's cabin in West Yellowstone. What I love about their cabin is that everything is designed around family togetherness; it's not fancy by any means, but the kitchen is huge with plenty of mismatched dishes and huge bowls for tossing salads for fifteen. The couches are old and saggy, but perfect for little ones to jump on or for watching old movies on. The walls are covered with family pictures, handmade crafts, grandma-made cross stitches and a framed list of cabin rules by Sam's great grandpa. The whole place is just saturated with memories and comfortableness. We all took a deep breath of clean mountain air as soon as we stepped out of the car and just kept on breathing deeply the whole week long.
Some favorite memories:
:: Swimming in the Fire Hole River
:: Lazing about with plenty of time to read
:: Watching Sam devour his latest favorite food
:: Rousing games of speed Scrabble
:: Taking in a show while Grandma and Grandpa watched the little ones.
:: Plenty of walks through the wildflower-strewn fields
:: And sunset rides with my arms wrapped tight around sweet Clay
