This is what we woke up to on Saturday morning! We had a late snow storm come in on friday night. It was so pretty. And very cold.
And yes this is yours truly with a snow shovel in her hand. Did shovel the whole driveway. Uh, nope, no way. About a hour after this picture, the snow storm was gone and the sun popped out and melted the driveways and roads very nicely. Thats the thing about March snows in the south. Here today and gone tomorrow. But we really enjoyed the pleasant surprise and the opportunity to take some great pics.
My daughter came out on friday afternoon and spent the week-end with me. We made it to the rehab to see her Granny before the snow started on friday. Mom was tickled to see her and Kalyn was glad to see her too.
After the snow melted off the roads on saturday afternoon, Kalyn and I took a little trip to our local park, Montgomery Bell, and took some great snow pictures. It was still really cold and windy but we braved the elements in order to have a fun afternoon and I really enjoyed being with her.
This is a beautiful, old Presbyterian Church that was built in the park in 1810. The next picture is the sign that tells about it.
They open the doors during the day and you can go inside. Its so pretty inside with a old piano and awesome stained glass windows.
Thats Kalyn at the pulpit ready for a sermon. And a little Brat terrier inside there with us too.
Kalyn is playing a little tune on the piano.
This is a replica of a cabin that it is next door to the church where Samuel King, the minister who founded the church lived. You can actually look through screens into the rooms which has the old furniture inside. The pictures didn't come out though, all you could see were the screens.
Behind the Church and the cabin is a little stream with a bridge over it and it looked so pretty with the snow on it.
And pretty Kalyn on the bridge! "Oh Baby, its cold out here!"
Montgomery Bell park is a National Park and covers several hundred acres. There is a Inn, cabins, campground, a church camp, and 3 lakes that you can fish and swim in. My parents would go all the time when they were dating to swim at one lake. And we went as children growing up and I took my kids when they were young too. We went to one of the lakes that has a resevoir on it and took a few more pictures.
Don't I look lovely? I have 2 layers of clothes on as it was COLD!!! We sure had a fun afternoon! And I loved having my Baby Girl to spend the day with. She loves the snow and we always have fun playing in it and making memories.
Sunday turned out to be a wonderful spring day. We woke up to a chilly morning but it got up to the 50s by the afternoon and just a few patches of snow in the shade. I took Kalyn home and then spent the afternoon with Mom. She is doing alot better and its looking like she may get to come this week. YAY!!! Sorry about the long post but it took me several days to post so I squeezed in alot!! Thanks for sharing our fun week-end with me! I hope everyone is doing well and also that you had a great week-end too!
