This weekend I traveled to a small town call Twain Harte with my Young Adults small group from church. It was a lot of fun to relax, hang out with friends, and experience God in new ways. It is amazing how my church family is quickly becoming a major part of my life. I have grown as so much this year and a half and the feelings of hopelessness and being alone have diminished. I will have to write more on that, but at a time when I am less tired.
I couldn't wait to post this for all my Idaho folks who have grown up in the snow. I went sledding in California for the first time this weekend and it is NOTHING like how we do it at home. It was fun, but different. As you can see there was a gentleman with a pool "flotation device" in his hand coming up to go sledding. I was like "YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING ME....but as you can all see I was not.
Just when I thought is couldn't get any crazier then it already was as I was leaving there was a family setting by the roadside BBQing??? Well I guess it isn't any different then hot dogs and marshmellows around the camp fire at the bottom of the sledding hill....being from Idaho though it seems more normal then pulling out the grill in the grass at the bottom of the sledding hill. Then again when have you seen so many people on one hill in Idaho with so little snow sledding.....I guess it is a matter of perspective. We would never drive that far for this...then again I should just be thankful they weren't charging a fee to use the hill. I am always learning something new in Cali even after 11 years!
