California Dreaming

We had a nice trip to California. That is, if you don't consider the last 11.5 hours we spent in the airport and flying home through the night.

We arrived on Thursday evening. We met the Houston gang and the bride and groom at Marie Callendar's. It was a joyous reunion.

But This SE Texas family went to the mountains! We surprised the kids and just told them we were going to see a forest with some really big trees. We went to Sequoia National Park. They have some really big trees.

But the real excitement was the SNOW! These poor deprived Southern children had never seen much more than a few flakes. They were beside themselves. We bought one of those little disc sleds and they went to town.

Missy discovered soon enough why we are a Southern people. She got snow in her boots. Her feet were so cold they hurt. She retreated to the car to try to warm them up. Poor sweet little toes.

Mommy and Daddy did their best to build her the snowman she had dreamed of for so long. We called it a snow princess. What do you think?

I'll share more tomorrow. For now, I will leave with this view.

Happy Valentine's Day, too!
