Our First Family Snow Trip

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather. ~John Ruskin

We took our first family trip to the snow on Sunday. It has been the one thing Ess wanted to do in and around Canberra and one motivator for her leaving Adelaide. It has been hard leaving the familiar places and friends we had grown to love, yet we have made some lovely new friends here in Canberra. We were fortunate to meet up with some of them at Mt Selwyn, simply by chance. All the girls had fabulous fun together.

The icy snowballs weren't quite the same as the soft bubbles in the bath our bub is used to, yet she approached them for exploration in the same manner.

And here he is:
Our very first snowman!

It was a long and lovely day, reminding me of our many beach trips and leaving me longing for another. The similarities were many - packing extra clothes, extra food, building, getting wet, fun and laughter.

So lovely to have a day out together not thinking about the fact that we are waiting for the Master of the Court to hand down his finding. Yes the case was heard a fortnight ago and he is taking his time in writing everything up properly. It's hard times!

Good grief you still haven't heard the results of your case?!?!!!

Those pictures are cute, but brrrrrr.....I am not looking forward to winter. After last winter, I was sick for so long, I just want to go somewhere warm and stay there from January to April!
