"A Winter Wonderland"
I just had to share these pictures with my friends. No, they were not taken here in the Sunshine State. I grew up in Indiana and Kentucky, and I always look forward to going back to see friends and family. One of the things we hope for on our annual Christmas trip is snow. Since we know this is the only chance our kids have to see the stuff, we really pray for a white vacation. This year we were not disappointed in the least. We had so much fun freezing to death. It had been 2 years since we had seen snow, and I got a little carried away with the camera. It was one of those snows where it stuck to the trees and sparkled. I drank in the beauty.
We even had a chance to go to a state park in Indiana that has a 1400 ft. of refrigerated toboggan track. The older 3 couldn't get enough of this. We even took Joseph down once--that is all he could handle. It is kind of like being shot out of a cannon. It dawned on me at the end of the track that he had never even been sledding; we really broke him in. He told me after we returned to Florida that he dreamed he was on that sled, and he did not like it. Well, if you are from the north, these photos might not mean much to you since you see it all winter long. We have returned to the sunny south, and it definitely is not snowing--but I do have my pictures to enjoy.
