Hi all. I’m sure I’m not the only one who is sick of all this snow and having a touch of the winter blues. The grey skies and overcast days are really bringing me down. Despite how beautiful the blanket of snow is over all our property.
The few gorgeous days with sun are so few and far between I’m really wondering how much more of this I can take. And yet, we took advantage of one of those bright and glorious days just recently.
The whole family went out – which honestly took some convincing of my eldest and of myself to slog through putting on all the snow stuff. I actually hate winter because of all the millions of layers we have to adorn just to stay warm enough to enjoy a brief amount of time. It doesn’t seem worth it sometimes.
And yet…… something nudged me from the inside telling me to do it. Convince Caleb and yourself and go out and play as a family. All four of us.
Well, that’s just what we did. We all packed in to our snow gear. Donned our mitts, and hats, and boots, and pants and scarves and coats and it felt like it went on forever getting us all dressed. With at least one of us falling over trying to search for an article of clothing every minute or so. Except of course Jason. If you know Jason at all, he knows exactly where all his belongings are located.
Ahhhh the perfection in opposites attracting….. or, NOT! LOL Luckily we did finally get outside or there might have been a less than pleasant remainder of the day.
And once I walked outside in to that dazzling sunshine and saw the shimmering snow I was so pumped. I grabbed the toboggans from off the porch and stuck both kids in and drug them as far as I could before they just wanted to get out and play in the snow mounds Jason has been developing with his snow plow.
We managed to get in a ton of great slides because the newly fallen snow made for amazing sledding conditions. And while we don’t have huge hills here, they are perfect for our little guys. Maybe one day when they’re bigger they’ll brave a GT snow racer down the walking trail!!! Actually, if I’m thinking correctly it will probably be more like a snowmobile and I will be riding on the back – Oh YEAH!
We’ve had our great snow day now, the season can shift into Spring….. who’s with me????
I truly am looking forward to a new season. The 2017 season is proving to be as busy and exciting as 2016. We have more than 200 more reservations this year than we did on the same day in 2016. I can’t say for sure what’s packing in the campers so early in the season but what I can say with certainty is that if you want to camp at the Brighton KOA at all during 2017 you better book soon.
Waiting may prove only to disappoint.
I look forward to seeing your names in the computer as you begin making online reservations or having a chance to catch up with you if you call me to book.
I hope the winter is keeping you all well!
