Snow and Santillis

We stopped to see some of our favorite friends on our way to Philly. As usual, we had a great time. Logan was so excited to see Andrew and immediately whisked him away to play Wii with him. Devon was in love with 'Dylan' (Daniel) and wanted him to play with her the whole time. Unfortunately, he only had eyes for the dogs and chased them relentlessly (unless he was playing with the trash can which has a step and is apparently better than any toy he has at home).

This was Daniel's first real experience with the snow.
He did a lot of this:

Devon and Andrew rebuilt the snowman:

Logan made snow angels:

And Tara and I took over 200 pictures each. When we got tired of shooting pictures of the kids, we took pictures of any kind of nature we could find. We were obsessed with trying to capture bokeh the whole time I was there (darn Pioneer Woman and her assignments).

Since Daniel had never really played in the snow before, I couldn't help but take a ton of pictures of him. It was also easier to photograph him because he couldn't move very fast in all his snow gear.

See that little bit of carrot under his mouth? That was supposed to be the snowman's nose but Andrew has been an eating machine lately and couldn't help himself.

Andrew's first taste of an icicle.

He ate 4 of them.

It's never too cold to be patriotic.


  1. Love the pictures and the artistic flare! So much fun.

  2. I happily read this post and then giggled out loud at the fact that Andrew ate the carrot. Priceless.

  3. We looooove having you guys over!! I wish that it was a quicker ride for the kid's sake and for ours too!!
