Stuff White People Like

Have you ever read the blog Stuff White People Like? Well I am pretty sure at least ten things we did this past weekend would make the list. We rented a cabin the mountains East of Seattle near Stevens Pass ski area and the Bavarian town of Leavenworth.

It was a super cute cabin and just perfect. We went with our friends Jessie and Mark and of course Scamp their dog.
The first thing Lily said upon entering was, "Wow! Nice house!"
We arrived late Friday evening so Saturday morning everyone was raring to get into the snow.
 I know you don't really wear wellies in the snow (another thing white people like, Wellies). We don't own real winter boots and certainly aren't going to buy some for a weekend trip. They worked well enough to keep our feet dry and warm. 
We borrowed a sled from a neighboring cabin and took Lily down a small hill. She loved it. The snow was pretty icy and hard but pretty deep so our feet kept falling in. Lily thought this was hilarious as her feet did not fall in.
Alex spent Saturday afternoon skiing. Something he does not get to do often enough. We held down the fort at the cabin. Jessie made chex mix, and choc chip cookies with the close supervision of Lily.
After an afternoon on the slopes Alex needed a relax in the jacuzzi. Lily joined him in the "tiny pool" for a bit. She wasn't too fond of the jets and wanted out after they came on.
Sunday morning we woke up to a ton of snow and it was still falling. It was beautiful. Mark took Lily out to make a snow man while we packed up the cabin. She read so much about making snow men in her Christmas books she was dying to make one. 
This is the road out of the cabin toward the highway! We were anxious to see how the drive home would be. The roads were well plowed though and it was not trouble. We made it home in plenty of time to watch the super bowl. You know, more stuff white people like! Oh and Gemma did come on the trip with us, she just didn't make it out into the snow. It was super icy and difficult to manage with Lily and the dogs so we didn't want to risk falling with her in the baby carrier. She has plenty of years to play in the snow.

  1. So fun!!! Lily has to learn to like jets though, how's the girl going to get used to spas and soaker tubs if she doesn't like the jets?!?!

    Wish we were there.
