Good Health and great weekend

St. Patrick's Day was one year from my last cancer surgery.  It was a great feeling to have a year of excellent health.  Celebrated with flowers from Todd and The Snow Family and then pizza from Z Pizza (my fav) and sundae's.  Mine was topped with Girl Scout Cookies - Thin Mints - yummy!  Teya's was topped with a variety of sprinkles and candies.  We then rented a cabin in Christopher Creek (just outside of Payson) this past weekend.  Me, Todd, Teya and Marely went up Friday night and The Sutton Family joined us Saturday afternoon.  Friday night and Saturday were a little cold for my taste, but the cabin was a really good time.  Of course, Sunday was the warmest day - not that we went there for the warmth, I just prefer it :).  Friday night we had dinner at a local restaurant - take out so we could be with Marley - and then played some games.  Saturday we went for a nice hike before The Sutton's arrived.  It was pretty chilly with a lot of wind, but we were prepared with lots of clothes, so we were good. There was still some snow on the ground in the shaded areas, so Teya was extremely excited to get to play in some snow.  The snow patches were pretty large and deep.  I would fall to mid-shin in places, so she got a pretty good experience.  We then went back and had lunch while we waited.  Once they got there we went for another short hike and found some more snow for the kids to play in. Fun, fun, fun!

The "resort" has a fenced in area for dogs, so Marley got to have some fun off the leash.  There is a play area for the kids.  Not like the local parks, but the kids loved it.  All in all it was a pretty cool place. The cabin wasn't spectacular, but it served it's purpose for all 8 of us with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, kitchen including stove, fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, camping grade plates, cups, silverware, pots and pans, a sitting area with fireplace and tv with local channels.  The best part for the kids was the loft.  It had a low ceiling, but the kids could walk.  There were 4 kid size beds up there and the kids absolutely LOVED it!

We forgot our camera, but took pictures on our phones.  I'll post the pictures once we get them uploaded.
