Winter continued... Snow and skiing!

Still catching up...

February snow!
Playing frisbee in the snow- Titus was so happy!

Over spring break, Josh and I joined the church group at Ski Cooper for our first downhill ski experience.  We also did a little cross country skiing while we were there.

Fall- Winter Catch Up

Well, I've totally neglected this blog and have a lot to catch up on.  I considered ditching the whole thing, but I really like having a place where I can look back and remember trips, events, etc.  So this post is just a photo dump from fall and winter '14-15.

November Snow

We only got about 1/2" of snow, but it was enough to make the roads slick and delay school for 2 hours.  Titus loves the chance to get extra play time on cold mornings like this. 

Titus just can't wait to go out and play in the snow!
Let's go play!!!
Titus loves his frisbee, snow, and cold weather.
I love that our boy is still so playful at nearly 10 1/2 years old.
Handsome boy!

Some of our neighbor's cows greeted us on our walk.
The bull was giving Titus the stink eye.
Here comes Blue Eye!  I don't know her real name, but she has 1 blue eye that I think is so pretty.
Pretty blue eye
Here comes Mama!  I also don't know her real name, but I've seen her nursing Blue Eye, so I assume she's the mama.
Mother/daughter greeting
The cows just stare at Titus and aren't really sure about him acting so happy in the snow.
They were really wishing I had carrots with me this morning.
Titus prints alongside some smaller animal prints.  I love seeing all the animal activity in the snow!
