We spent one night at a hotel in the mountains the day after Christmas. Our friends wanted to ski, and we were along for the company and the getaway. There wasn't enough snow to ski, and I don't know why anyone was surprised since it hasn't rained much or even been that cold. It still feels more like fall where we live than winter. Sure there is snow in the mountains, but I walked around in it without a jacket on for awhile because it was so nice outside. Joshua was eager to crawl in the snow when he saw it. He doesn't have waterproof clothing, so we just put him on a flat rock. Sure enough, as soon as he tried to put his hands out to crawl, he realized he didn't really want to do that. He did, however, really enjoy sledding with David.
