Andre's First Winter

It took us two days to get to Idaho Falls, ID from Claremont, CA. We decided to drive up instead of flying, It took us 2 days to do so. Andre was such a good boy during the drive (not that he ever isn't). He slept all the way to Las Vegas (3.5 hours), where we stopped to eat. After our dinner we put him back in his carseat and continued our journey. After fussing for ten minutes or so, he went back to sleep, waking up periodically and falling back asleep (oh the magic of a car ride!). This allowed us to get all the way to Beaver, UT, where we stopped for the night. Next day we travelled to Provo and picked up Jeff's little brother Jesse. We arrived at our destination later that day.

We were very excited to see Rick (Jeff's brother) and Misty and their little daughter Piper, who is three weeks older than Andre. We were also excited to see Grandpa Rich, Grandma Ann and Great-Grandma Ardath as well as other extended family and friends.

We were quite dissapointed to see no snow when we arrived to Idaho, and there was no snow in the forecast either, but lucky for us it snowed on Thursday. We loved the snow as we don't see much of it in Southern California. Andre liked it too - see for yourself.

Snow is such a peculiar thing!
