Nice Caboose! (And Day 16)

We went up north to RV for President's Day weekend and didn't touch the laptop once while we were there. Hence the reason why I am so far behind on the blog challenge, and why I have brand new pictures to share!

This works out perfectly because the next blog day says:

Day 16-Another picture of yourself

I'm sure there is a picture of me somewhere. . .

yep, here's one!

Wait! That is a nice caboose, but it's not mine (thank goodness!)

Here we are.

I'm glad I'm sitting down because that belly is much bigger in real life.  I've only got 3 more months to go and our little guy will be here!

Jeremiah convinced me to ride up north with him so we could help Veronica move her spa to a bigger place. I told him I would go if it wasn't going to snow.  He assured me that the storm had passed and it wouldn't snow. So me and the boys tagged along.

And it snowed.

Just a little bit. But it was freezing cold!

On our way up we stopped for a bathroom break at the park in Superior, you know, the one with the caboose.

They also had some old rusty mining train equipment that we hadn't seen before.
And some HUGE tractor tires.
And an old steam engine boiler! Simon's favorite!

 I chased Ryan around trying to get some shots of him and the caboose. Come back!

Gotcha Ry!
He was hitching a ride on the back of the caboose.

We detoured through St. Johns to visit our friends Nic and Shelly Finch and their cute little daughters. Shelly got me excited to start canning again so hopefully I will get going on that before the baby comes.

We also stopped by the St. Johns Court House to see Jeremiah's mom , a.k.a. Grandma Sue.
 It was my first time to see the inside of this historic building, and my first time seeing the inside of a court room in real life.

On Sunday night we attempted to drive back to Mesa from Springerville and we got hit by a HUGE snowstorm. About 20 minutes out it was white-out conditions and we thought it best to turn around and go back. Jeremiah is a brave driver and he usually doesn't mind the snow, unlike me. But he even felt uneasy, like we needed to go back.

So we spent part of Presidents Day with family, waiting for the roads to thaw.

I wouldn't have had it any other way.
