Weekend Recap



Had the nicest weekend with friends on my first trip to Western MD. Angie found us a cabin to rent near Deep Creek Lake, and it had an outdoor hot tub, which we frequented all weekend in between bouts of boardgames, crossword puzzles, hot toddy's and delicious meals by the fire. From the few photos that Phil and I took- it appears we were hiking all weekend, but that's a lie. The only hiking we did was between the cabin, and the car, which was parked down at the bottom of the road due to ice and snow (which were both a really nice sight to this northerner's winter-deprived eyes).
I thieved the first and last photo from Scott's flickr, since Phil and I only took a few photos the whole weekend. Scott managed to get some amazing group shots in our last few hours in Garrett County. Store did too.
All in all, a perfect way to start living 2009 the way I hope it will be. Laughing, eating and surrounded by good people.

Also - thanks to my big brother, I have a new very warm & cozy winter coat that worked its magic during this excursion.

forgot to mention that this is the only photo that doesn't show storephil as the clear jumping-on-cue champion. that said, I love the photo with one person down, because it shows that we're jumping and it looks like he propelled us all up there on the way down from his own jump!

you calling me fat?




....cause i already knew.......

Rachel Bone said...

fat? why? OH, because you launched us all in the air? No, I'm calling you the master of ceremonies. You came down to earth from your heroic leap (light as a feather, i'm sure) and stomped your foot, and we all launched into space. you landed magically on the "eject" button.

did you check out the new Mountain State Brewery there? My friend Willie's brewery has a branch there. Haven't been to that one yet, but the beer is awesome!
