On a SNOW Hunt…

Guess what?

It SNOWED in Orange County yesterday! The hills are beautiful, absolutely amazing, and everyone is so excited about the unusual phenomenon.

Today, the kids and I went on a SNOW Hunt. I had planned to take pictures of them for Christmas, so how could I resist the possibility of SNOW for a background. We packed up and hopped in the festive, big red LancerBurb to start our adventure – headed toward the SNOW.

Driving twisty-turny roads wide enough for only one car (even though there was two-way traffic), we wended out way through the majestic canyons, Live Oak, Trabuco, and Silverado. Christmas songs played, we sang, we laughed (especially at a couple of street names…Honky Dory and Okey Dokey), we enjoyed a marvelous day together. However, although we could see the SNOW, we just couldn’t get there. No roads went up to the fluffy, cold, hardly-ever-graces-our-hills white stuff, called SNOW.

We had to face the facts…there would be no SNOW-laden backdrop for the Christmas picture, but the photos had to be shot nonetheless. So, here are some of our gorgeous pictures from our extraordinarily fun-filled SNOW Hunting adventure…
