Christmas: a break from the fun

The day after Christmas found us taking Andrew and his girlfriend back up to college in Bellingham--about 2 hours from our house. We had a great time spending time with them and getting to know her even better. We stopped for a Starbucks on our way out of town and then for sub sandwiches along the way.

The weather was supposed to be turning to rain but, as you can tell from these pictures which I took from the car, certain areas we drove through did not seem to receive the rain memo! It was a bit harrowing in places, but my calm, cool, collected husband didn't even bat an eye at this. Can you tell he was born and bred in Minnesota! (me? not so calm)

After we dropped them off at their respective apartments and drove through the worst area of falling snow and slick roads...

...we were rewarded with this!

The roads look like our mountains! I'll bet the Krispy Kreme place was a welcome stop:)
