The sun was deceiving and I made my outfit decision in the moment I thought spring had arrived early.  At 30 degrees my ankles are a little cold but I am not going to put back on my boots.  I am not..I am not..I am not.

Before I even opened my eyes, I could smell breakfast: pancakes, french toast, eggs, blueberry muffins.  There was no boarding the bus or getting in the car before a good breakfast was eaten. Spoiled…probably. Loved…very much so.  Backpacks plopped on the floor, we would all sit down and eat while mom read from the bible.

They had snowballs in hand and were waiting for the signal.  1..2..3 GOOO!  I snapped a few quick pictures and then ducked as Tanner hurled a snowball at me.  I did deserve it.  After all, he did spend the previous half hour posing in a foot of snow on a very cold winter day.

I am not quite sure what I was thinking when I handed silly string to Tanner and his friend.  I was already covered in snowball remains and soon to experience my first camera black out.

Tanner prepared his can of silly string, gave a few good squirts at his friend and then glanced over at me.  Seconds later the camera lens was silly stringed.

Love these three!  How many sticks does it take to blow a bubble that big?

With flushed cheeks, the cold began to wear off .  I love that feeling…when you have finished playing in the snow, taking a winter walk, or in my case shoveling the driveway.  It’s that feeling when the warmth of the indoors begins to lull you to sleep.  As the ice melted from my boots, I pulled the bread from the oven.  The freshly baked aroma filled the kitchen.  Piping hot, I sliced into the bread.  One slice, two, three. I ate half of a loaf. Now a nap is unavoidable.

We were supposed to be exiting when Matt swung the car around to re-enter the park.

“The sun is setting and I think we will be able to see the falls better now without the glare.”  He pulled back into the parking lot, jumped, out of the car and ran through the snow to the edge.  He was right…beautiful absolutley beautiful.  The sky was painted with pinks and the falls shone a bright green.  We hopped back in the car now ready to leave when Matt pulled around again.  “We need to go take our picture!” We had taken at least 100 photos that day, but the midday sun shone too brightly to capture both us and the falls.  He parked again and I chased him through the snow back towards the falls.   We snapped a few just as the sun slipped away for the night.  Walking back to the car hand in hand I leaned in close as the wind blew.
