The trip began on Friday afternoon when we got in the car and ventured out to Red River. Luke's family has gone there his whole life, so it basically feels like a second home to him. This was my 3rd trip there, and while its not beach vacation I am beginning to love it.
We traveled for 10 hours and arrived in RR around midnight. We stayed in a lodge that we have stayed in before, however this time I am fairly positive the lodge was poisoning me. My allergies took a turn for the worse while we were in the cabin.
We spent 5 nights there and had such a great time!! Here is a quick recap of our trip.
First Day: We spent the day walking around Red River going into all the little shops around town. It was a great relaxing day and we just took it easy.

Kelsey and I in town.
The first night we celebrated my birthday! Yay! It was a lot of fun!
Opening my presents:Luke checking out my presents:The whole group before dinner: Our friends Kelsey and Chris went on the trip with us. We haven't seen them since they moved to Arkansas so we had a great time hanging out with them for a couple of days!
The Tree Family:At a Steakhouse for my birthday dinner!The next morning we woke up and we snowmobiling. Luke and I have done this before, but every time it is so much fun!
I was afraid I wasn't going to be able to go, because I woke up this morning very sick and without a voice, but ultimately decided I don't have the opportunity to do this very often so I should go. I am glad I did!
Luke and I on the snow mobile. Although we are unrecognizable, yes that is us! I was very sick and didn't want any cold air going in my body! The whole group:The Tree family (minus Luke's brother)That afternoon and the next day we went skiing.
I have a problem when skiing; I do not know how to go slow.
I would try and try to go slow but I would end up flying down the mountain as fast as I could go. Most times this worked out perfectly, however when I fell, it was a good fall!
Skiing was so much fun and defnitely a great work out. Not just from skiing but from all the laughing we did!
We left Wednesday morning and headed back home. I managed to cough every 3 seconds the entire way home. No cough drops, allergy medicine, or soothing throat spay could help me.
I spent the rest of the spring break cleaning the good ole APT and getting mentally prepared to go back to work.
Hope you had a great weekend!
