Our November Escape...

...just a few weeks ago to Boyne Mountain Resort. Clearly, this weekend adventure could never replace that deep emptiness and longing to be at the cabin--which we missed this year. But the drive north still seemed right in the fall.

We bought (practically stole) a weekend in this beautiful condo that no one else had placed a bid the Symphony's Gala auction last spring. It turned out to be big enough for three families, but perfectly cozy enough for our little family. There were three large bedrooms with four more double beds (besides our King-size in the master suite) and three full bathrooms. Sorry we didn't bring you.

Maya loved the slides at the indoor waterpark at the resort--the little "Lyellow!" one in the kiddie area and the big swirly one that she and daddy climbed to the top of the tower to ride. She still talks about the "pool" and all the "wah-wah". She sort of whispers about the "slah" (slide) now, with big serious eyes...a sort of reverent, hushed excitement.
We were prepared for her to be not quite old enough to appreciate this place, but she loved it...we had to tear her away when her fingers started turning blue.



how fun..and funny!

i love all of her expressions, but the earnest/awestruck storytelling face might be my favorite..

I just remembered I hadn't checked your blog lately, and I was so glad I did. Maya's facial expression in your family picture is beyond words - I seriously laughed out loud at my computer several times, because I had to keep going back to see if it was as good as I thought it was!

I hope you are all doing well and enjoying Christmas preparations. : )
