A weekend away in the mountains was just what I needed! Although, it's always hard to leave. There's nothing like resting in the stillness of God's creation and being restored. Next year I definitely want to stay an extra day. We drove up on Friday and took the 3pm shuttle van in to the camp. We settled into our rooms and I got to work on my scrapbooking.
On Saturday we had wonderful morning devotions, worked on our scrapbooks and went snowshoeing. We went tubing later that night underneath the stars; it was amazing. Sunday morning we had more devotions and slowly packed up our stuff. We took one last walk out to the lake before lunch. Then we caught the 2pm shuttle back to our cars and headed home.
It's hard to put into words what a great weekend it was. Here are a few pictures to help tell the story.
