We found snow!

It's been on the calendar for a few weeks now. The kids had a half day of school last Wednesday, so Steve took the day off and as soon as the kids walked in the door at noon, we took off for Happy Jack (30 min. north of Payson). Believe me, I was not sure if we were going to find snow....they did have a lot of snow up north earlier this year, but it was near 80 in Mesa...and it cooled to 60's when we arrived in Payson....no snow anywhere to be seen on the way.....we kept driving up the mountain...saw a few patches here and there. We drive a few miles more above Strawberry and finally we see SNOW....lots of SNOW. Whew - what a difference a few miles makes. We were the only ones there all afternoon and had a blast. We'll definately come again next year.

For Joseph, this was even better than video games!

Haha. Looks like tons of fun! We were going to try to go this year but after science camp I was snowed out and did not want to. Maybe next year.
