The weather has turned cold here in the Lou. Really cold. Like in the 30’s cold. I don’t think that I’m ready for this, but I guess snow is pretty dandy??? So… I gotta look at the positives and outweigh the negatives. Snow is kinda dandy… Am I right? It looks dandy. The smell of it all fresh as it falls from the sky. Big fluffy flakes. I’m making this sound better and better. More and more dandy. If I keep up the mantra then I will believe it. *wink* We only had flurries the other day. I’ll be sure to let you all know when the first big snow storm hits. I’m sure you will be waiting on pins and needles for this announcement. *wink again*
I’ve always loved how the Brit’s refer to vacations and trips as, “going on holiday”. Could be my British ancestry speaking, but it’s just more dandy to call it a holiday. After all holidays are time spend with family and loved ones. So if you are going on a trip with your family then why shouldn’t you call it a holiday??? Well, last weekend we got out of St. Louis and took an overnight getaway kind of holiday. We headed west on I-70 a few hours and came very close to entering another state. That’s a clue as to where we went. It was great to get out of town and spend time together as a family. This family adventure was truly a grand time. In fact we went on a tropical adventure.
We stayed warm by the fire:
We were greeted with warm cookies upon our arrival:
And we spent time in a sauna like atmosphere. All misty and warm air. Safe and protected from the outdoor elements.
WHERE DID WE GO???
Just for funs I’ve created a puzzle for you to help “piece” together where exactly we went. Hey, it’s too cold to go outside these days, so I’m spending a lot of time indoors. Oh and the pun was definitely intended. Enjoy!
Stay tuned for a detailed post on the new blog, Seeing Dandy. All will be revealed soon.
