We were watching Jake and the Neverland Pirates, winding down before changing into our pajamas, and I just happened to get a picture of this cuteness!
These are some of my favorite moments with my Little Man. I love cuddling on the couch with him at the end of the day, listening to him laugh or watching him pet Izzy. Spending any time I can with him just makes my life better.
We had more snow last night.
Its okay though…spring is around the corner!
For now though, I’m going to enjoy the beauty of this:
Winter hasn’t been really bad for us until this past week. Monday (February 16) it began snowing and we ended up with about 15 inches here at our house. Wednesday we had a polar vortex that brought the temperatures down to crazy lows for us. Tuesday night/Wednesday was -7 and then Thursday night was -15. Our power went off Thursday morning but thankfully we have a whole house generator so it wasn’t a huge inconvenience.
When the snow first began. This was Monday around 11:30am.
The snow was gorgeous even if it was quite treacherous. A farm in the snow is just beautiful!
Snow, snow and more snow!
This was after everything started melting…
First time playing in the snow!
He loved it!
Love my baby boy!
He couldn’t walk through the snow so he began crawling toward my 4-Runner yelling “Car!” “Car!” “Car!” He’s obsessed with anything with wheels, motor or steering wheel.
We had to hang out on the tractor since we were outside!
Winter isn’t horrible for me but honestly, I’m ready for spring. I’m ready to start planting my garden and feeling the warm sun on my face!
We took Rylan to Dairy Queen for a Valentine’s treat.
This kid can really put away the food…I’m going to really have my work cut out for me when he becomes a teenager.
He has learned to dip things!
He likes a little ranch with his chicken tenders! 😉
As soon as he saw this his eyes got big and he said “Cooookie!”
We had never been to Harlan, Hazard or Whitesburg. We’ve heard people talk about these places all of our life so we decided to do a little road trip and drive through these places. It was pretty chilly so we didn’t walk through the towns or anything but we did see some beautiful scenery.
Our route: Bristol, VA 421 North. We went through Gate City, VA, Duffield, VA, Pennington Gap, VA into Harlan, KY. From Harlan we took 119 and it had some breathtaking views! We took 15 up to Hazard then backtracked on 15 then North on 119 to US23. We then followed 23 into Wise, VA and made our way back home.
Coal is rolling in Letcher County, KY!
It was a nice road trip. We didn’t really “do anything” other than drive and look around. It was great to spend time with my family though and always nice to go places I’ve never been. Maybe in the summer we can ride back over and get to walk around in the towns.
What a gorgeous day it was! We went for a walk and played in the yard with the dogs for a bit! Days like this just make me anxious for spring!
