Week-end Cabin Getaway

Last Friday night Eric went with his good friends Sean and Ryan up to Sean's family cabin near Oakley, UT.  Sean is getting married on May 7, so they were going up for a last hoorah before Sean gets married.  They actually dubbed this week-end "Man's Week-end."  Well, that name wasn't quite fitting because the significant others were invited up on Saturday night.   
Us girls left to come up at about 4 PM on Saturday.  The boys had told us that there was a lot of snow up there.  We thought they were joking because we hardly saw any snow until about 10 minutes before we got there.  Oh and there was A LOT of snow.  A little while after we got there we enjoyed a delicious meal of dutch oven BBQ chicken and cornbread, and tin foil veggies.  It was yummy!  Good job everyone.

We then ventured inside to hang out and make smores and dough boys.  Dough boys are a little pie looking treat made from biscuits being cooked on a special wooden stick.  I love them.  We also decided to all sleep in the main room on the couch and on two mattresses because the cabin was freezing!  The main area had a wood burning stove making it the warmest room.  After getting our beds all set up we put in Inception to watch.  We actually all fell asleep except for Eric.  He turned the movie off early though because watching it alone was no fun.

The next morning we woke up to a very cold cabin.  It was 28 inside!  The fire had died out and we were all cuddled up so we didn't notice the chill until we woke up.  Man it was cold.  We got the fire started and the place warmed up a little.  After a delicious breakfast of donuts and breakfast casserole we decided to take a walk since the sun was finally shining.  The area was beautiful.  It felt so good to get outside.  After we got back from our walk, we packed up and went home.  I'm glad we were able to go.  It was a lot of fun.
