Snow Shoeing

My Aunt Sherrie gave Josh and I a pair of snow shoes for Christmas. What a perfect gift. We have been wanting to buy some for the past five or six years. While up at Priest Lake for Christmas we used the snow shoes almost every day. It was so beautiful to get out and explore. So refreshing to be outside! The first day we went was a picture perfect winter day, the kind you dream about. There was fresh powder on the ground, the sun was out, the sky was blue and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. The snow looked like it was made out of a bunch of shining crystals.

Here are my parents trying out their new snow shoes.

Brendan loved coming along in his backpack. He loves to be outside and looked forward to his walk everyday.

Brendan also enjoyed his time with his Grandpa and MiMi

We celebrated New Years with our dear friends Zach and Kim and their adorable 5 week old son Graham. We always look forward to our time with them and are so thankful for their amazing friendship. It will be fun to raise our kids together. We were able to take them out snow shoeing while their little guy was sleeping. So great to have such neat people to spend time with.

It is fun to think of all the adventures we will have using these snow shoes. Thank you Auntie Sherrie for giving us something that will help to make so many great memories. We are already looking forward to our next outing!!
