Since much of the world seems to be missing its wintry white blanket, I thought I'd begin the Christmas photo catch-up by sharing pictures from a December day trip to snowy Bryce Canyon.
We ventured out to Bryce Canyon with my parents, who drove all the way from Nebraska to spend the holidays with our family. The kids were thrilled to see NomiAnn and Papa Kay, particularly during Tic Tac Time. Here's NomiAnn getting Eli all bundled up.
All ready to go!
The Bryce Canyon amphitheaters are absolutely stunning. If you haven't seen these hoodoos, I recommend you add them to your bucket list for life.
Just in case you need more convincing...
The girls were ecstatic to experience their first snow for the season--that is, until their feet got cold.
Time for a snowball fight!
Talia, just kickin' around.
Cute as a button.
Eli wonders, is there a purpose to all of this?
Here's Papa Kay, working his way along what we hoped was a trail.
NomiAnn and Kara, sludging their way through as well.
Jason and Eli look happy.
In the end, we turned around when the snow reached our thighs, fearing that someone might unintentionally toboggan their way through the hoodoos. Still, everyone stayed in good spirits, including the mini-van. Look closely--you may spot a familiar reindeer! (Courtesy of Papa K, the gimmick master, of course.)
Warning: Surrounding oneself with such beauty may spark feelings of romance.
