boring photo post

 Last Monday morning while we were in Midway, I woke up early (before Adam had to leave for work) to go test my new camera on the beautiful earth.
 I drove around for a little bit, but the sun was slow coming up and I had to be back so Adam could leave...
 but it finally came! And it made the world so glorious! (Amazing what a little light can do.)

 (one of my faves)

 Back at the condo I found evidence of a few deer visitors just outside the door.
 And nature's cool sculptures.

 And finally the steaming stream and glittery snow.

 I was glad I woke up and froze my buns off. I think a photographer (which I'm not) has an extra sense to see the beauty in everything- even the little things. I'm a wannabe for sure.

midway getaway

 While our house is looking like this (no toilets except the basement, and no kitchen appliances and tile installing going on)- we decided to head up to Midway to stay in the Swalberg condo. We love it up there!!! The boys especially, but Adam and I always ask ourselves why we don't go up more often...
 This is the view out the front door- amazing right?

 The boys were VERY excited to have this GIANT icicle just outside their window. They fell asleep looking at it every night.
 Of course we did a little swimming, the boys would have gone twice a day if we let them, and I wouldn't mind if I didn't have to wash my hair twice a day. No matter how hard I try to keep it dry, 3 boys are much too splashy.

 I love the big beautiful windows at the pool. Someday, I'll have more windows in my house...

 We did a little exploring...

 And of course got some gelato from across the street. Pineapple and Mango were my picks for the day- yum.

 But mostly we just lazed around the condo all weekend. It was nice. We all can't help but feel a little more bonded as a family after trips to the condo- that must be why we love it so.
And we will never go to Midway without stopping by our favorite Mexican restaurant- Tarahumara. (Even the kids cheese quesadillas are delicious.)
 We also went to the Midway ice castles and drove past them a lot. Fun!

 We decided to stay through Monday afternoon since the grout was going in the tile that day, so Adam left to work while we played and cleaned (and by that I mean the boys played while I cleaned...and Linc took a nap.)

Until next time, condo that we love...
