Unfortunately about 5 miles away from our cabin on the first day, the truck that Scott and Gayle, (Ryan's mom and dad) were driving hit some black ice and their car lost control and they slammed into the 5 foot snow pile on the side of the road. Thankfully no one was hurt, the truck got a little dinged up from the trailer swinging around and hitting both sides of the truck and denting it. But luckily insurance would cover it all! We finally got to the cabin and it was amazing!! it was huge and just so nice! it even had a grill and hot tub on the deck!
Our first day out on the snowmobiles we went on a 4 hour drive!!! man it was so fun and i didn't become freezing till the last hour... :) hahah but we drove all around and went up into Wyoming and went all the way up to Two Tops. I have never seen anything so AMAZING having to do with snow than this view at the top of Two Tops. It was like being at Goblin Valley but instead of the weird red rock formations it was GIANT white snow monsters.... they were trees but you couldn't see any tree... just tons of snow covering those trees. i sadly didn't bring my camera with me and if i had i dunno if i would have been able to take pictures, it was FREEZING up there and the wind was blowing so hard. so i stole some pics people took off google! so you could at least get an idea of what i saw!! it was amazing!
We got back to the cabin had some delicious chili and then got into the hot tub to warm ourselves back up!
Day 2 out on the snowmobiles we drove another 4 hour drive up to the upper Mesa Falls in Idaho it was also very beautiful there too, i did bring my camera for that one, unfortunately i didn't think it was as amazing and beautiful as the sight id seen the day before, but non the less still beautiful! I drove the snowmobile the whole way back to the cabin and that was awesome, the thing is so big and heavy it was kinda hard to steer and control especially with Travis sitting on the back but i managed and got us back safely :) piece of cake!
That night the Willis decided to take us all into West Yellowstone and take us to eat at the Three Bears restaurant. There i had my first taste of Bison. it was pretty good a little chewy but very tasty.
All in all we had a BLAST. We got lots of snowmobiling in and hot tub time, it was the perfect winter get away! Thank you Willis family for inviting us along!! We traveled back home with no problems at all. Sadly i didn't take too many pictures because i was having so much fun i often forgot my camera and two because it was so cold i didn't wanna take off my gloves to snap a picture. but here are a few i did take, and some of Two Tops i stole off Google :) enjoy!

We also got Rue a little scratch post so that she isnt so tempted to scratch our couches... boy does it work... she doesnt even use her claws on our couches and i love it! this little post was only about $35 at Wal-Mart. And it goes all the way to the ceiling!!! its awesome and she loves it!
me and Trav actually made a cat scratching post because all the ones we really liked that were really cool were super expensive... i mean in the hundreds of dollars. So we made on it took us 4 hours Trav did most of it and i helped a bunch but when the finished product was done... it just wasnt what we had hoped for... so thats why we were excited about the simple one from Wal-Mart. we did keep the one we made we just moved it into her room/spare bedroom so that its out of the way and out of sight. hahah
Rue also loves our bathroom sink, the tub, bubbles and windows... big shockers i know... she is just so darn cute with the sink... we will turn the water on just a little so it has a solid stream of water and she will try and attack it and then drink it. she also will stick her whole head under the water drip and not even notice until i come to dry her off.
i would also just like to add that i have been loving the Spring like weather the past few days it is wonderful and i wish it was permanent... who knows we shall see. :)
