I spent the weekend at Pat and Leslie's cabin in McCall and attended the Winter Carnival for the first time since college. We got there Friday afternoon and worked around the house. P & L had bought some new rugs so we moved furniture and laid them. They were great additions! Wish I had taken some photos!
In the evening, we drove into to town and watched fireworks over the lake at Greg & Helen's house. Out on the deck we enjoyed wine and fantastic fireworks in the cold night air. It was a perfect place to watch. Afterwords, we ordered pizza and Mollie and her friends arrived. We spent the remainder of the evening catching up with Mols and getting acquainted with the girls.
Saturday morning, we went to the parade in the middle of town. The parade was typical small town fun with civics groups, fire departments and kids participating. The theme was Mardi Gras so the entrants threw lots of beads. It was too cold for anyone to duplicate New Orleans to receive the beads. We ate lunch while wandering through the vendors and ran into Mollie, and then Gabe.
The girls went tubing and we went back to the cabin and just hung out. Jack and Chelsea arrived and headed out to the tubing hill until Jack drove through a road which wasn't plowed and got stuck! It was a couple of hours before Pat and Jack got the truck dug out. We fixed dinner and Greg and Helen came over to eat. It was a splendid evening with old friends!
