Escape to relaxation!

After all of the hustle and bustle of Christmas, John and I decided that it'd be nice to plan a little escape to a cabin in the woods! Off we went to Gordonsville, VA! The week prior the area had a snow storm that left 24 inches of snow in its wake! Some was left over!
View from our deck
Lake Issak from our cabin's deck.
Looking up at the parking area from our cabin.
Ian lobs a snow ball at Arrick who is trying to avoid the "momparazzi"!

Ian unpacks and Arrick avoids the "momparazzi" once again!

Ian checks out the ginormous bathtub/jacuzzi that really should have a ladder!

Arrick vegged out by the fire.

John making dinner while Ian checks his fan mail!

A barn that I think is cool not too far from our cabin.
Off we went to visit a "dead guy's house" in Ian's terms!
The drive up to the house.

The front of the house.
The back and side of the home. The kitchen is on the ground floor.

I love how the museums decorate for the Holidays!

The Monroe home grounds.
servants quarters..
James Monroe penned our country's first real foreign policy.
He also didn't die in poverty like most of our founding fathers.
Hey! There is Arrick!
Ian....watching his brother...
I saw this as we were leaving and just thought it was clever! lol
