SnoCal 2012

Ok, i'm a little ticked off right now
my computer's running slow
as usual
my pictures are failing to upload
not usual
and Aidan has decided that she would like to be a teacher this afternoon
so she keeps interrupting with new assignments for me to complete
or checking to see if I need to go potty
 pretty cute, but she's kind of bossy too

anyway, I'll do my best to give a short recap of the holiday weekend
so here it goes

Over the last six years, every President's Day weekend our youth 
group heads up to the Pinecrest mountains for our annual SnoCal Retreat
and this year was no different

the adventure began on Saturday morning with a four hour drive up the mountains

the weather channel said there would be no snow
so i didn't bring jackets
the weather app said there would be no snow
so I didn't bring my gloves
the national weather website said that snow levels were at 0"
so I didn't bring the girl's snow suits
but when we got there, we found this

so I ran to the nearest gas station and one hundred dollars later, 
we had the minimum amount of snow gear we needed to get through the weekend

and it was pretty great

the weekend was filled with sledding
snowball fights
book clubs
board games
eating games
hunger games
bible reading
good eats 

and as quickly as it started, it ended

and then we came home
to a fridge with zero food
several loads of laundry
and two very tired children

and whole new kind of week began

the whole family woke up
put our Van's shoes on
and headed out shopping

Costco took our money
Lucky's took our money
Trader Joe's took our money
but our fridge was full again

and we didn't waste anytime on chowing down

remember Thursday is the first Thursday of the month which means
PinterTest Kitchen hosted by Jessica
and I've been PinterTesting like a madman
so, see ya Thursday!
