My parents took the family to a fun lodge near Evanston where we stayed overnight and went snowmobiling! Unfortunately the snow hasn't been quite as awesome this year as it was last year, but we still managed to have a lot of fun!

The cabin/lodge we stayed in had 3 floors and the top floor had a loft with 3 very large lovesacs. The kids LOVED them and had so much fun jumping into them. Great entertainment!

A view of what the boys were doing...watching ESPN. What else?

We celebrated my niece, Elise's 1st birthday (Emily's)! Molly was watching Emily make her cake.

The cute birthday girl! She had fun eating the large gumballs and her cake! We love you Elise! Her birthday was a carnival theme and Emily went all out. There was cotton candy, cracker jacks, lollipops, coloring books and she even made crayons in the shape of animals! It was a lot of fun and the kids loved it.

Here we are getting ready to head out on the snowmobiles!

Molly wasn't a fan of her helmet :( or snowmobiling either really!

We took the girls out for one ride and they were pretty much done! Ali didn't seem to care one way or the other, but Molly was done!

It was really a lot of fun. We just wish we had another day or two!!
