Some of many faces of Northern California

We just came home from a skiing trip to Kirkwood, California - a little South of Lake Tahoe. We had so much snow, it was incredible. I think, I have never had so good skiing conditions.


Mia built her first snowman ever, ate her first snow and went on her first sleigh ride. It was so cold and the snow so powdery, that we had to built the snowman like a pyramid. The snow just wouldn't stick.

After a beautiful drive back through Gold Country via Jackson and Stockton we came back home and found the Silicon Valley in full spring swing. The canola field on the end of our street is blooming bright yellow and the fruit trees are buzzing with busy bees. While it was snowing heavily in the mountains we finally got some rain here and nature is now plump and juicy. We are expecting more rain this coming weekend, so I will have to come up with some crafty rainy day projects for my girls. Suggestions?

If you are longing for some sun and fresh spring blooms, I hope my pictures will get you a little closer. Only a few more weeks ...  Hang in there!
