I decided to renew my efforts. I thought and thought about what, exactly I liked about SLO. I made a mental list and I discovered I liked it because it had things that no other place had. Surely Tucson has things that no other place has. Maybe I would like Tucson more if I formed more associations with things that belong to just here.
Thus, we decided to visit Mt. Lemmon and play in the snow.
Good times were had sliding down the hills.
Then we decided to go for a little walk.
We found this snow cave someone had built. Here's Lillian and Tyler contemplating whether or not to go in. Lillian decided against it.
We set her in front of it to take a picture and she FREAKED out. Maybe she thought we were going to push her inside.
I stopped to take some pictures of these icicles and that stop was 20 seconds longer than she wanted to stay. All of a sudden, the snow was too cold, too snowy, too outside, and too not accompanied by Toy Stories as she calls it.
Here's the meltdown in action. Total time spent in the snow: 20 minutes. Total time to drive one way: 1.5 hours.
I look awful in this picture. Really horrible; I'm not sure why I'm posting it. Oh well.
