Musher Mania!!

Hello everyone! I am so glad to be home and relaxing on my couch. :) We went with my husbands family away to our annual hotel getaway. Every year around Christmas time we all go to a hotel for the weekend so the boys can have a mini vacation to swim and play. We usually go about 2 hours south, but last year we had gotten a bad snow storm back here at home, and my husband plows driveways for his lawncare customers, so he had a commitment to to. So we decided to go just 30 miles north this time. Well unfortuantly we got snow AGAIN this year, but Joe didn't have so far to drive home to do snow removal. And we had a day planned to go to this Musher Mania someone had told us about. So he missed out on all of that. Jude had a blast watching all of the dogs, Aidan did not. :) He was so clod and miserable that he and I stayed in the heating tent. :) Which didn't bother me too much, I don't care much for the cold either, hehe! But we were able to get some nice pictures of a couple of the dogs, they were BEAUTIFUL! Then we were off back to the hotel, where the boys had a BLAST swimming. And what was super nice was, there was noone else there....we had the pool all to ourselves. :) It was hard to get them out of there. It is just nice to be able to leave any troubles behind, relax and just enjoy ourselves. :) We laughed, we played, we ate....and we ate....and we ate, hehe! We snacked the whole time we were there, hehe! It was so much fun! I hope you all had as good of a weekend as we did!!!

Here is Aidan, not looking too happy, hehe! It was pretty cold and we were in the warming tent!

And then there is Jude...he was loving it! He wants a husky dog so bad!

Me and Aidan, looking all bundled up! :)

And me and Jude! :)

And here are a few pictures of the huskies that Jude was able to snap while he was out there watching the race with Joe's parents.
