Mild weather kept the ski trails from being at their very best, but our guests this weekend enjoyed themselves hiking, snowshoeing, and exploring along the shoreline of the lake. Justine, not quite 3, found herself enchanted by the miniature 'geysers' (as she called them) formed by the many little springs bubbling up along the shore.
And up at the stable, we seemed to have a complete collection of little ladies, who had a blast with the chickens, Achmed the Cat, Holly the poodle, and the pony. Squeegee is such an obliging little soul, and Judy was a trooper, leading the kids up and down the driveway. Again. And again. And again. Hannah -- seen in this picture -- had to be almost pried off her pony! She was very good, though, about letting the other girls have a turn!
We're sure the smiles were still firmly on all their faces when they finally went to bed!
