all day last saturday, travis was acting weird. we had plans to go take photos of the mountains and play in the snow later that day, i didn't really want to go. i was feeling tired & poopy. but i said, "i'll go, because you want to so badly". And he did, I'd never seen him so excited to take photos before. then he started acting weirder. stepping out of the room to take phone calls, packing up the car with blankets, pillows and my make-up? when i asked what they were for he said, "duh. an eagle scout is always prepared!" so i just let it go.
thirty minutes of driving went by and i asked what the heck was going on. then we parked. i looked at the sign: "Kelly Canyon Ski Resort". We were going snowboarding!!! I was the happiest girl in all the world.
it felt so good to be on the mountain, shredding the gnar, and riding the oh so romantic ski lift with my man. i felt so incredibly lucky.
the time came for the park to close, and we drove out of the parking lot with a huge and tired smile on my face. but, instead of turning left... we turned right. i said, "wrong way! maybe there's a place up here to turn around?" and travis just smiled.
then we parked again. travis walked up to a lonely little cabin marked "Private" and walked right in. i was so confused! i followed after him and saw the greatest surprise yet, a sweet Valentines set-up just for us. What a lucky girl I am, I felt so very loved!
the next day was Sunday, and we had the whole park to ourselves. we watched old movies, went sledding, ate hobo dinners and had too much fun. oh how i love that man of mine.
thank you SO MUCH to all of our friends that helped trav to plan it. we are so blessed!
