Things we need...

Our daughter. I don't know where she comes up with some of these things...She was having a little tea party the other day on the patio outside the kitchen window while I was cleaning up the lunch dishes. I looked outside just in time to see Hannah, arms outstretched to the heavens, imploringly crying out "Oh Lord, we need more chicken!!!"

Our Getaway

Peter and I were blessed to have a little getaway weekend a few weeks ago for his birthday/our upcoming anniversary. We went to the Tenaya Lodge just outside of Yosemite, where we spent part of our honeymoon. It was so special!

When we drove up on Friday night, it was nice and cool, but no snow. By morning, we had LOTS of snow, which continued to come down all day. We went on a 1.5 mile hike in the snow to a partially frozen creek, as well as just rested, talked, and had a great time enjoying our time together with no children to interrupt! (They stayed in Fresno with my parents...)

By the time we left on Sunday, we had received almost 18 inches of snow. Peter had to dig out our car! It was a beautiful sunny day, and we had a lovely drive home, followed by a birthday dinner at my parents house.

The kids had (of course) a splended time with Mimi and Papa, and were still glad to see us.

All in all, it was a special weekend. I'm so glad we could do this before our new baby comes in April!

This was the view from our room!
