Day 17: Snow!!!

November 18, 2011

National Parks, On the Road

Some days are simple.  I really like the simple days.

Days when we get up, have breakfast, and I do school with the boys while Brent “goes” to work.  Then when afternoon comes, we go for a bike ride, a walk, or some other simple adventure.

Today was one of those days.  After our morning routine we loaded up in the truck and headed back to Yosemite to say goodbye to Half Dome and film my first workout.  I’m trying to film a workout in every state for my health blog, Girl Heroes. While in Yosemite, the boys decided to play in the snow since we had just bought them overpriced new gloves from the camp store.  I’lll never understand, how we took off forgetting gloves when it was nearly winter.  For goodness sakes, I packed a pair of fishnet stockings.

Then it was war! 

After playing in the snow, we ran out of propane which meant no heat or stove. Go figure.

Luckily for us, I had bought some convenience food and we had a cozy meal of  micorwaved lukewarm Indian fare before hitting the cooooold sheets.

Love and Laughter,
Jenn

I'm Jenn and I'm so happy you stopped by our little corner of the web. My favorite moments are cuddling with my boys, listening to the purrs of my cat, and sipping warm cups of tea. The smell of orange blossoms conjures up delightful memories of childhood even though I grew up in Indiana hundreds of miles from citrus groves. I love animals and when I'm stressed I dream of owning a goat farm. I love art, road trips, books, and food. Vintage clothes make me ridiculously happy. Red lipstick is my friend.

    Those Indian packets are the best thing ever – we use them for travel days when we are out of leftovers. While we don’t have snow in Memphis, we are also looking forward to heading south! Propane goes quick when it’s near freezing temps!

    I love those simple days, too! We haven’t been having a lot of those lately, though. We are getting ready to leave our hometown and our days seem to be too busy. It’ hasn’t been feeling like “RVliving” at all! what’s up with that??? Can’t wait to go to our first destination! Florida!

    Our kids asked if we would be in the snow during our trip (leaving in May). We said “no”. Then, we were in the snow or snowed on at least a half-dozen times. So much for our predictions. (I didn’t bring warm gear either).
