Boone with the Cousins

Aunt Chrissy and Uncle Chris brought their crew up from Florida in February, hoping to see some snow.  Unfortunately, we didn’t have any in Charlotte (it’s hard to predict here) so we all headed to the NC mountains for the weekend.  The Blue Ridge Parkway was closed so we couldn’t access any of the free sledding hills, but one of the ski resorts was just fine for a little snow exposure to kick our weekend off (pictures from goofing around in snow piles at the ski resort are on Instagram).  This was actually Emilee’s first time seeing snow.  The next day was the real deal—not only did it snow for us that day, but we had enjoyed a great morning so snow tubing at Hawksnest.  On our way home from tubing, we also fit in a visit to Linville Caverns to which was a pretty interesting tour.  I overheard Emilee say, “I can’t believe I’m inside a mountain!” 

Hopefully one winter we’ll be able to introduce our other little Florida cousins to snow, too!
