Snow Picnic

A couple of Monday's ago, we went on a little adventure with my parents (a.k.a. Bramma and BamPA (because that is how Preston says his their names)).

We drove up to Mt. Shuksan, which is where the Mt. Baker Ski resort is. The two mountains are next door to each other.

It was a perfectly sunny day and though it was pretty cold, it wasn't terribly cold - so I didn't feel bad about taking the kiddos out into the weather.

We'd been so busy unpacking after having just moved, that it was the perfect thing to do to get away from everything and just have fun. So without further adieu, I'll just let you browse at the pics. It's pretty self explanatory - we ate hot dogs, hot cocoa, and beans and then went snow shoeing afterwards. Well, Will went on skis with special skins on the bottom that make them so he can climb up hills without sliding backwards.

I had Taylor in the Baby Bjorn in front of me, and Will had Preston in the backpack. We had fun!

Gee, one would think Preston wasn't too keen on the whole snow thing.

Ok, yes, you showed us that you know how to pick your nose...

I absolutely love this photo...

We've been busy sleep training Taylor, if you want to know how it's going, you can read about it on my mommy blog. :)

Looks like loads of fun. Last night, I told Dave we need to take an adventure up in the mountains; we both have snowshoes & Dave has AT skis too. But preferably, I'd like to participate in a mountain adventure where we don't get lost (you did hear about Dave's incident last year, right?) Anyway, looks like a great family outing! :)
