Thanks for all the nice comments on my vacation pics. Always good to hear from you!
On Saturday we took the opportunity to go up the mountain to see the snow. The trail is quite a hectic one only accessible by 4 x4 with low range. (which hubby has). We have only done this once before, two years ago when we took our kids to see the snow for the first time. Actually it was my hubby's first time in the snow too!
I was just as freaked out going up the mountain. I don't like heights! But the view from the top and the fun is totally worth it.
It took us just over to drive their from our campsite and another hour to get up the trail only to spend less than an hour at the top of the mountain! But it is still worth it. It was a lot colder this time so we didn't stay as long.
And threw a few snowballs at each other...
And of course built snowmen
Unfortunately school holidays are finished. School starts again on Monday. Not looking forward to the early-rising when it's cold and dark still. It's so boring. I love having my kids at home, I love being able to sleep in, and I love knowing we don't "have to" be anywhere or rush off somewhere. It's been a busy holiday but a nice one. I am looking forward to some "me-time" though as I haven't been able to do much in the way of creating pretty much anything.
One thing I did finish is my son's blanket. I decided to just end it, after all, I wanted him to still get the blanket during his childhood!! It is a rather large lap blanket but the nice thing is that I think as he grows, each year, I will add a few more rounds to it. I kinda like that idea...
*will reveal soon*
The stripey blanket is STILL in progress...as I said, I haven't had any time to work on my projects. I was hoping to have it finished by now but I haven't been very good in sticking to one project. Since starting the stripey blanket I started a few other projects and finished a few but did not stick to just working on the blanket. Was hoping to have it done by this winter, but alas....it will only be ready I think for next winter. ..
Hope you're having a fab day!
