Walking in a Winter Wonderland

We spent the day up at Mt. Charleston. It's amazing how just a 45 minute drive will have such different weather... I think the car reading was 29 degrees! There was snow everywhere, and Kylie was in heaven. Kacey was a little unsure, especially when Matthew asked a stranger to hold her for a second because Kylie and I couldn't make it up the steps to get on one of the sled paths. The steps had completely frozen over and were literally a slippery 45 degree incline. It was hilarious... I was cracking up, but I could not hold onto Kylie and pull myself and her up. Matthew had to make a few trips to get us (up and then back down)... what I wouldn't do for a picture of that!

Snow Angels! She just started laying down and doing them, we didn't even know she knew how to do it or what they were. Plus, she didn't care how wet her jeans were. We have to get the girls some snow pants.

Look at that beautiful background!

She was bundled up nice and warm... but her cheeks and nose were still bright red.

After all the playing, we went to warm up and have lunch at the Lodge.
This was the absolute best family fun Saturday!!!
I can't wait to go back... (but we need to get a really cool sled first)

Kylie looks like she was really enjoying her day in the snow, but Kacey definitely appears to be somewhat skeptical of that cold wet white stuff... :-)

What beautiful scenery! The mountains are so beautiful covered in snow.

It must have been such a great day for the family.

Thanks for sharing the fun pictures of the snow. The family was traveling back from Utah to Murrieta, CA after Thanksgiving and we had to stop just south of Beaver in order to have a snowball fight. The kids had a lot of fun with it. Sure is fun to see how fast the kidlets are growing up. Check out our crew at . Have a great holiday season.

That looks so fun! I wish she had some snow around here, but not even in the mountains, just rain!
