Family Getaway

After spending nearly 8 months locked up, the Lihn family got out for a weekend away. The arrival of snow drew us north to my parent's cabin in Strawberry, Arizona. Altitude is about 4500 feet higher, so we took Zoe's pulse ox monitor and portable oxygen tank just in case. Of course, she is a trooper and didn't need it. Her sats stayed in the 90s all weekend.

Shortly after we arrived, we dressed and headed out to play in the snow.

Grandma and Grandpa Muenich provided the sled and Emmy had a blast!

Grandpa kept Zoe company while we were busy snapping photos of Emmy's first sledding experience.

Then Zoe joined in the sledding fun.

We took more family photos (since we don't get snow too often in Arizona.)

After snow day, Zoe relaxed by the fire.

The next morning Emmy and Caleb headed out again to build a snowman. I'm not so sure I would call it a snow"man," more like a snow"jabba."

Emmy insisted on sledding some more.

The girls enjoyed their bonding time and once we arrived home, took to wrestling. I'm fairly certain Zoe will be beating up her big sister in a few years.

We had a great time at the cabin and plan to spend many more weekends there this summer to escape the 115 degree heat.


  1. Awww! Such cute pictures! I'm so glad you guys had such a great time. :) I love the picture of the two girls on the sled- gorgeous :)

  3. Oh.My.Gosh. Your girls are so incredibly adorable! Thanks so much for sharing your weekend with us!! Love the family pics and the snow jabba is awesome!! You all totally deserved a getaway. And Zoe's a rock star (no surprise) for not needing her oxygen. <3
