Happy New Year!!

On New Year's Day. We decided to go up to Snoqualmie Pass and go for a walk in the snow. We usually go up in mid-Feb when the temp is right around 32. This day it was in the mid-20's and the snow was so fine. There were no snowballs to be made, as much as this family likes to throw them at each other.

It sure was pretty.
And SUPER windy.

After the walk, we decided to go sledding so we pulled off where we saw others sledding, Nick parked in a snowbank, the kids saucer-ed down the hill for a while in the 30 mph wind, brrr, until the sun went down, the wind picked up, and we could not get the car out of the snowbank, and a guy in a massive truck with a chain in the back happened along and pulled us out, whew! Fun day.

Oh, you made that guy's day! All these years he's been driving around with chains in his truck looking for something to do.

We got a Touareg, so, you know, we just plow on through. At least that's what they do in the commercial. Haven't actually had the opportunity yet.

I see you got a Cluster Map. I see me, and probably your folks. Who are all of those people in the Midwest?

Incidentally - have you ever considered a blog name change now that you are a full blown blog junkie and not just documenting a Summer family trip?
