Time In The Mountains

Last Thursday was a little different for this family.  Instead of getting up in the morning to cook a turkey we loaded up the truck and headed out of town.

 We were heading to the mountains.
 A place with no internet, cell service, daily chores, cooking and school work.

A cabin in the mountains, amazing stars, and northern lights that danced all around us each night.  Not a turkey dinner but for us, the perfect way to spend our thanksgiving holiday!
