Spring? Really??

Okay so everyone is tired of winter, and snow. So what do Southerners do on Spring Break?? No beach for us........... we head to the mountains of West Virginia. And SNOW!!

My children love to snowboard, so as a last minute idea, we headed for the slopes.

The first glimpse of a mountain.

Yeh, yeh, we are flat landers.

Oh boy, we are going through a mountain!

See it doesn't take much to get us excited :-)

Are we there yet??

Uh, NO!

woo-hoo, we are starting to see snow on the side of the road!

Getting closer..........

We made it!

And this is the view from the window.

It had snowed the day before we arrived. It was 29 degrees the first night.

Getting ready to make a run.



I took these pictures out the back of the condo. I was not about to get out in that cold stuff ;-D

Although my hubby and I did drive up to the top one afternoon.

But we were just tourists.

The kids had a blast. It was a nice relaxing time for hubby and me too. Catching up on some reading and knitting. So there was no sewing or quilting last week. Only enjoying God's beautiful creation.

Happy Quilting!

I completely understand going where the kids are happy but I think I would suggest they take surfing lessons LOL

I love the snow. We've had waaay more than we need this winter, and I'm soooo ready for spring, but I wouldn't want to skip wintertime.

Glad you had such a good time in the mountains!

I am not going to do it, and you can't make me. I am NOT going to feel sorry for someone who has to go in search of snow!!! LOL! Glad you all had a good time, and mama got some stitching done.

Sounds like a great way to enjoy the snow, indoors crocheting. Glad you had a nice trip. Thanks for sharing the photo's.

I'll gladly share some of our snow with you! ha! We got hit with about eight inches yesterday. It was beautiful outside but here in the NE we are ready for some spring sunshine and warmth! Glad you all had such a good time in the mountains!

Love your mountain photos! What a great way to spend Spring Break! Just thinking of mountains, makes me relax and breath deep.

Nanci said...

Great photos. We've driven that route too! I know kids have so much energy. But staying warm and watching the fun is better than being out there.
