Snowy Days

Who says you can't get out and have some fun in the snow?! We had some sunshine, low winds and temps in the 20's so we got out of the house. I feel like we've been in hibernation with the bears, rabbits, frogs, fish and all the other various creatures that hibernate the winter away. So, we travelled a whopping distance of 10 miles to Walnut Point State Park (this place is beautiful and practically in our back yard), and "got out". Maxy wanted to camp, and picnic, and swing and slide but we told him we would have to wait till it wasn't quite so cold and the snow was all gone. We had fun taking pics and taking in the snowy scenery. There's something so quiet, peaceful, magical about snow. Especially when it sparkles like glitter in the sunlight. After the chilly sight-seeing, we had lunch at the White House Cafe in Oakland; a small town near the park. It was adorable and very clean with a white picket fence with plates and pictures of barns decorating the walls. I think we made a discovery. So, if you are tired of being in "hibernation", get bundled up, grab the hands of the people you love and go enjoy the wonder of snowy days.

This and the next 3 pics in our yard. Max keeps his elbows bent and hands straight out when he has on his big mittens. :)
