Last weekend Branston (and his dad) experienced snow for the first time. He did not know it was so cold and wet!! We went up to Ceres and went up a 4x4 trail on a nearby farm. Certainly could not have done this without a 4x4! We went up to the top (almost) of the mountain (well, maybe a hill) with the 2 boys screaming like girls half the time. Once in the snow they had a ball. Snowmen and snowball fights were the order of the day. Luckily we brought spare clothing as they had to change their pants before we went home. The adults had some yummy gluwein to warm us up, after Neil gave us a fright by burning a hole into the gas pipe of his gas stove!
All in all, a good time was had by all but we are so glad that we do not live in Europe or Canada!
