~Tis a Thankful Time~


 The Squire and I recently took a much needed weekend jaunt to the mountains of Idaho for some family time.  I grew up in the Central Mountains of Idaho, very near the Continental Divide.  I forget how breath taking the mountains are!
 
  Mother and I aired out the quilts from the cabin:
 And during a Saturday afternoon drive with Mr. Squire, we ran into these magnificent and beautiful creatures:
And of course we had lots of granddaughter time at the cabin.  This red and white sweater was made for her uncle 25 years ago, and I brought it out of the cedar chest to keep Little Miss warm.
She was always up for anyone to give her a ride in the lawn wagon and she was a complete joy.  These times are what make life worth it.  We visited with neighbors, did some work to get ready for winter, and took country walks down the lane and down to the creek.  I did plenty of staring at the mountains, and slept so deep with the mountain air so fresh.  Yes, these family spent times are what makes life all worth it!

Love seeing all the quilts airing on the fence. Lucky you to have a cabin getaway - I guess our 5th wheel is our portable cabin - LOL! Grand daughter is SUCH a cutie! Glad you enjoyed your outing.
