Winter Wonderland

Here is a short video of Mikaela, Toby and myself sliding down a little hill we found while visiting Sequoia National Park a couple weeks ago. We played in the snow, although much of the time we were sinking in it up to our knees which provided us with some amusing challenges! We also saw the General Sherman tree and Mikaela was so amazed that it was really the biggest tree in the world. Before we left our lodge room, Toby hadn't wanted to go see the trees b/c he wanted to stay in the room and play. He threw a fit but we dragged him along anyway thinking it wouldn't be right to leave him in the room alone. :) What joy it brought this mother's heart when, as we walked through the giant trees, he said we were right and that he was really glad we came to see the trees cuz they were so neat. Will he be so quick to admit he was wrong and his parents were right in another 13 years? Well, I can always dream, can't I?

    Already I've learned some stuff about you on this site, but I'm ashamed to admit what. Dad

  2. What... that I'm so funny? Or that I have ADD? :)
    I love you, Dad.

  3. What fun! You guys inspire me. We've been wanting to take the kids, too, but something always seems to get in the way. I think we'll just have to make it a priority now.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts and heart with me.
