Day 9- In search of snow

10 Jan

Yes , how funny is life? We had snow in abundance in Central Park a year ago. A mere 5 minute walk from our NYC apartment  But we stayed in. We wonder why now – maybe it was wanting to protect a smaller child already dealing with preschool germs. Anyway, now in southern Cali apparently the need to see snow makes us drive an hour away:) And we made a full day outing of it.
Bandar’s friends mom suggested we take the girls to a small town in the mountains today and that is what we did. The snow gear was pulled out of storage and off we went.
A bagel stop on the way and lunch in the cute little town followed. No snow was in sight on the main street, so we drove a little away to find heaps of snow !
The girls played to their heart’s content, which for 3 year olds is about 20 minutes give or take, before we hear a whine . Some sliding on the saucer happened and a small snowman was built. And we were back on our way home.
Bandar napped on the way letting the husbadoo and I talk which seems to be rare these days. Blissful day with good friends , good food and fun.
Truly feel blessed to have our pick of beaches and mountains fairly close. Here’s hoping for many more Saturdays like this! Now I am off to eat my apple pie and catch up on some Modern Family:)

    that’s nice.. No snow yet for this winter at this side.. the weather doesnt seem like winter at all on most days. It feels good but Adi was just reminding me today that it is really not good. Winter is supposed to be cold. The girl gave me a lecture about global warming for following 5 minutes 🙂
