During the month that David was gone on course, he was able to come home for 2 weekends. It was so beautiful and sunny on the saturday we decided to head out the Ingram Trail and see where the trucks first catch the Ice Road. Even though we have lived here for 6 1/2 years we have never driven all the way out to the end and thought this would be a good opportunity!! So camera, snowsuits, snacks, drinks etc. etc. etc. in hand we headed out!!!
Just off the road where the Ice Road starts. You can see the truck headed out (upper left corner of photo) and how the water isn't totally frozen over.... it was crazy! Those trucks are so heavy.... it was neat to see!!
Madi dressed herself this day... and YES!! she is wearing tights, shorts and a sweatshirt!! She is adorable!!
My Madi girl!
Self portrait of me and my girl!!
Madi wanted to take a picture of me.... and this was the outcome!
We headed back up the road again and parked at the Cameron Falls campsite... snowsuited up and let the kids out to play!!
Lily kept getting frustrated that she couldn't walk around in the snow easily. She is still a little bit tiny to walk in the deep snow... but she eventually got a hand of it and had a good time!
See.... she is happy!!
LOVE this picture of Madison!
She was SO tuckered out after playing in the snow. She walked and walked and walked!! It was so fun!
This is how Lily spent most of her time! Falling down.. or crying to get picked up!!
I even put Caleb in his snowsuit and set him out for a few pictures.. he wasn't really interested in it.. he only wanted to eat the snowsuit!
I love this one.. Caleb is totally looking like he is thinking "get me out of here...I don't trust Beanie"!!! And I think he had good reason for that... I am pretty sure she shoved him out of her lap right after this picture!! Good thing he is sturdy!!
She stood there like that while I went to get the camera to take her picture. She was so annoyed that I wouldn't just pull her... Lazy little bean!!
See... she was lazy!!
Madi and Caleb.... she is such a great big sister!!
Only shot all day of the three of them.... at least it was a semi good one!!
David with his boy!!! ... see.... he is trying to eat his snowsuit!
Me and my Caleb!!
Don't you wish you could know what they were thinking about.... such a cute picture of two sisters!
Madi building her snowman from snow chunks... we don't often get good packing snow.. so she made her snowman out of chunks the snowplow left behind!
