thanksgiving 2013

this year's thanksgiving was so cozy and relaxing, just how it should be.
we flew into our city by the salty lake and headed up in the mountains 
past heber, utah with chase's family at a cabin for the weekend.

we sat by the fire, ate way too much food, played games, went on snowy walks,
watched movies, cuddled up in blankets, cooked together, talked with family
we never get to see, read, and had no phones/wifi/laptops/internet.
it was just what we needed.

we finished off the weekend with shopping in park city, going to the last
utah football game, visiting our friends, and doing dinner with my family.

we are so grateful to have a place to call home.
we love the familiar streets and feeling of salt lake city.
we'll see you again in 18 days!
love that cabin light.
chase's brother paris requested banana pudding
along with pumpkin pie + chocolate pie.
grandson + grandma.
the cutest uncle. heart eyes!

as for the rest of the weekend...
leftovers are the best part of thanksgiving,
but we did have to add a few more sweet potatoes..
and found this mustache sweet potato!
meeting the sweetest nephew zachary
we headed down from the cabin and 
made it to the U game on saturday
love our alma mater.
chase accidentally forgot his red.... luckily we still won!
nephew tagg + U games + cafe rio. three things we miss!

and then the christmas decorations
started to appear........
thankful for a cozy weekend spent with family.
now, back to california until christmas!!!
{our sunrise flight..we'll be back soon!}

  4. Such gorgeous pictures! That sounds like a truly perfect weekend. I love my laptop and cell phone, but it's so nice to put them away for a couple days and detox.

  5. Back when we lived in Utah my boyfriend & I had season tickets to the U football games - sigh. So jealous you got to go to their last home game! Nothing beats some U of U football.

    1. AGREED! glad you're a fellow ute fan.

  6. Looks like you had a wonderful holiday! I love that cabin. It reminds me of the cabins in Gatlinburg, TN up in the smoky mountains. :) SO beautiful!
