In Search of Snow.....

Brandon has been dying to drive up North and find some snow for the kids to play in.  As a boy, he grew up in Idaho where there was PLENTY of snow in the winter to play in.  So, he understands a child's fixation with the fun white stuff!  We LOVE Arizona and the weather here, but thought it would be fun to give the kids a taste of the cold!  Brandon decided that yesterday was the day, so we loaded up and headed north.  It only took 3 hours to find a decent amount of snow!  We pulled over into a National park, and quickly bundled up in our coats!
We lasted MAYBE 10 minutes in the cold!  We don't even own boots or gloves!  It was a super fun family activity and drove home remembering why we love the warmth in Arizona so much!  All in all, 7 hours in the car......10 minutes in the snow.......a tank of gas.......some junk food.......TOTALLY WORTH IT!
