Our Weekend Getaway

February 15, 2015


I always look forward to February. It’s another month past winter, it’s a short month, us teachers have President’s break, and of course, there is always Valentine’s Day.

This weekend, we took off to our cabin in Yankton near the Lewis and Clark Lake. We love it down there, and it’s a fun getaway just an hour away from our home. The views are spectacular, even in the winter, and we really enjoyed the glorious weather on Friday! Ivy LOVES to be outside.


My sister Catheryn was in town visiting from Portland, Oregon, so my Mom and Dad also made the voyage down with us to get in some quality fam time.



So damn cute. Ivy says “grampa” over and over again. SWOON


We are just a short walk from our cabin to the lake, which is perfect to stroll down to and also visit the bike trails and park.

My family headed back on Saturday, so the rest of the weekend was spent with just John, Ivy, and I. We took strolls around the neighborhood, had our Valentine’s Date at The Landing where Ivy devoured some creme brulee (she’s lucky I shared), and just enjoyed some relaxation.

Ivy certainly knows how to relax at the cabin ;)
