Tree adventure....

Well we went to Idaho last friday with a crew of friends and family to cut down our Christmas Tree - its an anual tradition. We love it! My parents were gracious enough to take the baby for the day so she didn't freeze. We left at 8:00 5 trucks and trailers with 4 wheelers and rhinos - but not even an hour into the drive - deans dads truck broke down - we thought he could fix it - hurried and changed out the fuel filter and it broke down again - so they ended up turning around and going home and we cut thier tree down for them (the best one of the bunch)! The kids had a ball - eating and climbing around in the snow - riding on the 4 wheelers and hunting down that perfect tree. It was REALLY cold - the high was maybe 35 so we had a few complaints here and there but for the most part it was alot of fun and we have the perfect tree! Here are a few pictures from the trip.......
