Today we packed up Tulley and London, and headed up to Auburn for lunch. The master plan was to have lunch, meet up with Cameron's hunting buddy to transfer some gear and go play in the snow a little. That's exactly what we did, albeit I've used the word "play" loosely.
We took the Old Auburn exit and headed into the historic district. Boy was it busy there - probably took us 20 minutes to find a parking spot. After a brief walking tour, we settled on Awful Annie's for lunch. London is getting to be such a big girl, sitting in high chairs all the time now. She found great amusement in the wine list. Daughter like mother, I guess.
Then we met us with Cameron's hunting buddy Gilles, who drove over the pass from Reno. This was all so Cameron could pick up his, and two other friends, gear that Gilles was kind enough to drive out to Colorado and back.
Next stop, Snow! We drove up to the rest area just past Gold Run Rd, where there was enough snow to get Tulley and London their first experiences. We were really curious how Tulley would react. She charged right onto it, following her dad like a good girl.
Meanwhile, I was bundling up London. We were very thankful for the little snowsuit the Moffetts had gotten her for Christmas. Purple is definitely her color too. From there, London and I stood outside while we watched Cameron and Tulley play fetch with snow balls and chunks. After a few pictures with London in her outfit we were ready to go.
Cameron and I are both looking forward to some sledding and snow man making next winter with London, which means a Cabela's trip is in our future to get me some snow boots and clothes! May have to stock up on some hot chocolate for those days as well.
And before we did any of this today, Cameron and I planted garlic in the wine barrels. We're hoping it does well, as we do eat a lot of fresh garlic.
