1st Trip to the Cabin

This past weekend we had the opportunity to travel up north to my families cabin. This cabin was bought by my great-grandfather, so it's been in the family for awhile (of course remodeled since then). It's located up in the mountains outside Prescott Valley. It's actually the same elevation as Flagstaff if that is any image of how far up the mountain you drive to get there. The last 20 mins of the drive is on a dirt road. So Blake and I took Fischer up to meet my parents who were already there. Fischer did so good on the drive up, he slept the whole way. He LOVES bouncing, so I knew he'd love it once we hit the dirt road. And sure enough it didn't even phase him, he slept right through it. It was so nice to get away in the cool weather and just have a relaxing weekend with my parents.

So we had to get a Bennett picture (yes even though that's not my last name anymore, Bennett is still in my blood). This sign we have hanging up in front of the cabin says "The Bennett's Live Here". So here's my dad, Fischer and I!
Our Family photo in front of the cabin! (Minus the dogs, they stayed home with Blake's parents)
This is what most of our day consisted of, watching Fischer on the floor. He entertained us all with this smiles and jabbering.
Blake and I decided to go for a walk and enjoy the cool weather. Here's a picture we took with the timer and the camera sitting on a tree stump.
I have to say one of my favorite parts was dressing Fischer up in the cutest winter clothes. He was styling and warm for sure! I had to post this cute picture of him peeking over Blake's shoulder with those gorgeous blue eyes.
We had a great weekend. I can't wait for the many other times that Fischer will get to go up there. I have such great childhood memories up there with my parents and grandparents that it excites me for Fischer to be able to experience that same thing. My dad was already telling Fischer all about the fun adventures they are going to have once he gets older.

Here's some more pictures from the weekend on our Picasa album.
