Speaking of snow...
( Click on pics to enlarge )
Visiting around the blogs the past few days I have seen a lot of snowy scenes and heard a lot of snowy tales. As for me, there have been very few snow days in my entire life! I remember one snowy Christmas Eve from my early childhood!
And then there was this!!
...And there was our California trip in 1986!
Our daughter and 2 grandsons had left us just before Christmas to reunite with Marc at Fort Ord in Monterey, Ca. Marc had just returned from a whole year, stationed overseas, but now the family could be together. Fort Ord, Monterey, Ca. was a great place to be stationed and we were happy for the kids...but sad for us!
Up until that time we had been with the kids all their lives! After they left us in Dec. '85- we had decided to visit them in January '86! :) ( I tell ya, it was rough letting those boys go!!)
...Besides... who wouldn't like the idea of a first time trip to California - yah-that had it's appeal, too! :)
These pictures are from a trip we made from Fort Ord, (where the kids were living in the Army housing there) to Placerville area and on to Lake Tahoe!
Beautiful scenery! In fact- every part of California- from LA to San Francisco...and on thru the farming areas of Salinas Valley...everything we saw was just wonderful! Every part has it's own special beauty!
Anyway-in the area of Lake Tahoe, we saw this...SNOW!!! It wasn't snowing but there was plenty on the ground! Dan, at almost 3 years, had fun making snowballs...Brian , not yet walking, didn't have a really close encounter!
It was lots of fun for us!
~~For me though, the main attraction was those two little guys at the top of my post! :) ~~
