"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences." — Gordon B. Hinckley

~Winter Adventure~

What a really great Saturday!!!
We slept in, had a big nice breakfast then took off on an adventure! We headed up to The Falls at the other end of town. We have had 10 winters here and have never gone up to The Falls in the winter. I have seen pictures of them all frozen and thought it would be fun to see them for ourselves. Just before we got to the falls we had to stop to let about 12 wild turkeys cross the road. What a cool sight! Then off to the falls! They weren't completely frozen but they were still beautiful! We walked around, got some great pictures and let Drake play in the water. After we finished walking around the falls we drove further up the mountain. As we were coming around a corner, another truck was coming toward us pretty fast and not moving over, so Ward moved over to the right of what we thought was the road, it ended up being a ditch. We were stuck!! Lucky for us the man stopped along with his friends in their trucks. It took just over an hour to get us out of the ditch. Just as we went off the road it started to rain. It rained hard the whole time they were helping us. The girls and I sat there talking and laughing at silly jokes when it hit me.....This needs to go on the blog. My door wouldn't open because of how deep the snow was so we rolled the window down to get some pictures of our great Winter Adventure!! When we go home we had some hot chocolate, and watched a movie to end our day. What great memories were captured today!

Notice the ice climber?
There were 4 people helping each other climb the ice.

Great pictures! It’s so cool to see the waterfalls frozen like that! Too bad your car got stuck in the deep snow, but otherwise, you all seem to have enjoyed your winter adventure!
