Today after class we quietly gathered up all of our snow stuff, snuck to the car and made our escape from Rexburg!! First we went to "R" mountain to find a complete lack of snow so we made a spur of the moment decision and went to Harriman Stake Park. This was the perfect scene for our mission of... snowshoeing! Last time we were home we were given the privilege of going shopping in the basement for the family discount of free (it's like a mini sportsman and REI all in one) and we walked out with a couple of pairs of snow shoes (Thanks Dad!) The drive up was just b-e-a-utiful! I'd never been up that way so it was a fun new adventure. We started out kind of late so we only got to snowshoe for about 45 minutes but it was completely worth it! It was just what we needed, a little rejuvention to help us make it through the rest of the semester. On the way home we stopped at this family diner in Ashton and had a great dinner. It was the perfect date and a much needed get away with my hubby. There's something about just hopping in the car and going that clears my mind and makes me feel so happy, especially when its with my boy...can't wait to do it again! ( Sorry for the pic overload!)

I'm a little obsessed with this function on my camera. It makes me feel like a real photographer when really all I do is press one little button and hope something comes out in focus-still love it though! If you can't tell the pine needles are not in focus in the first one and are in the one below.

Just trudging along

Simply perfect-can't wait for another day like this one!
