grand lake getaway

we were lucky enough to go away for a weekend with the jon and maggie to grand lake. my aunt and uncle have a BEAUTIFUL cabin overlooking the lake..it is amazing! we all left the kiddos at home in the care of gracious grandparents and had an adult only weekend! it was such a treat to get quality time with mark and our dear friends. we made SOOO many fun memories! we had great night talks out on the deck snuggled in blankets, campfires, games night, meals enjoying beautiful views, hike to the falls, moose sightings, a boat ride on the pontoon where the guys were brave enough to dive in the FREEZING water...and so much more! it is amazing what a weekend away surrounded by God's beautiful creation can do for you soul! on the drive home mark and i talked about how blessed we are and how it is great to take the time to just sit back and thank God for all his gifts! here are some pictures from our fun weekend away!
