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!
