Snow Day

Us Arizonans don't get the opportunity to play in the snow very when there's a crazy huge storm on New Years Eve and even THE VALLEY got a little snow, you've gotta pack up the fam and head up north to play in it! 

Jami and Brandon had planned little snow trip for their girls when they learned of the storm, and were kind enough to invite the Heningers and Camps to tag along. So Friday morning we jumped in the car and took off for the snowy land of Payson, AZ. 

After driving around Payson trying to find a good sledding area, we ended up waaaaaay up the road in the mountains. We found a nice little spot and after donning on our winter gear, trudged off in the snow to find some sledding gold.

Little Kiley absolutely LOVED walking through the snow! It was all the way up to her thighs, but that did not stop her from tromping through it! Brookie was a little more weary, but once I set her down in a spot that was more compressed, she loved walking in her cute little rain boots through the snow. 

Tyler and Brandon finally found a spot off in the trees that was proclaimed to be The Spot, so the sledding madness began!

Even Mama Ray went down! In fact...I'm pretty sure she went down more than anyone else. haha! 

I got Kiley to go with me once, but after that she was more content to just watch. Brookie had no desire to go down, so she just sat and watched. :)

After Kiley had enough watching, she wanted to build a snowman. By now, the poor little girls were so cold they were getting pretty miserable. Jami and Tyler quickly built up a little "Olaf" and after snapping a family photo, we were off. 
 Brandon and the girls watching...too cold to help! 

Thank goodness for the GoPro and being able to get the whole family in the shot! 

It was so fun to get all bundled up and romp through the snow for a little bit.
We even got to try out our new snow boots...and I would HIGHLY recommend Sorel boots to anyone living in the snow! My toes weren't cold for even a second...and that never happens! 
(I got THESE and Ty got THESE)

Thanks Halls for inviting us to come play!

Brandon put together this awesome film...We love ourselves some Brando Films!!
