New Year's at Wintergreen...
We headed to Wintergreen to spend some quality family time and to ring in 2016! It was Harper's first visit to the mountain, and I think he liked it! Uncle Mark, Aunt Kathleen and Olivia joined us as well for the fun. The weather was still pretty warm so there wasn't a single snow flake on the mountain to be seen, so we swapped out skiing and tubing for hiking the golf course and spending time at the park!
We also spent some time at Devil's Backbone enjoying some brews and pretzels. They recently renovated the place and added in this huge beer garden with a big fire pit. With temps in the 60's we didn't really need the fire, but they built if for us anyway and we did enjoy the fun atmosphere.
The kids had so much fun together. Adam and Olivia really are good buds. I loved snapping some pics of them at one of the overlooks - again, notice, no snow on the slopes!
New Year's Eve was fun. We had photo props that made for some good laughs, and pics, throughout the evening. The kids did their countdown early thanks to the Netflix countdown videos and had fun dancing and cheering their way into 2016 (even it there were still 3 hours to go!). After the kiddos were off to bed we played some Cards Against Humanity until it was time for the real countdown! Always fun jumping into the New Year with my bub - a hop and a kiss and ready to tackle a new year!
Here's to a crazy but memorable 2015 and here's hoping 2016 is fun and perhaps slightly less dramatic as 2015. ;)
