gettin' wood

i had my first official "gettin' wood" adventure last weekend. for years, i've been hearing all about how joe used to have to go out and get wood when he was a kid. now that we own a house with a wood-burning stove, our little guys will be able to tell the same stories someday.
we'd tentatively planned a camping trip for that weekend, for joe's bday, but it was a tad too cold and wet for us. so we decided to just head out for the day...

the rain has been hanging on around here, but little did we know we'd be able to catch snowflakes on our tongues.

while joe did this,

the boys did this...cuddling in the back of the car, protesting their frozen toes and begging for more marshmallows to roast.

i managed to lure them briefly to this cozy little spot under the trees, but the warm fire soon called them back.

sam fared best of all, asleep even with the snowflakes landing on his face.

as we drove out in the falling snow, my jaw dropped to turn a bend and come upon this next view...

that's may for 'ya.
