It Snowed...

...but not here. 

My sweet nephew made it into the BC winter games.
(that's British Columbia for anyone not Canadian) 
So the whole gang headed up to Silver Star Mountain in Vernon to cheer him on.

He was drawn as a wild card.  
Picked after all the other athletes.
Not meant to be there, no expectations, and he forgot his team shirt.
He won a gold medal.
He won the only gold medal.
How's that for fabulous.

The snow was pretty fabulous too.
Lots and lots of snow.
How much...

This is the front of our cabin.
That is my husband and his brother on the snow bank.
The kids are in a snow cave..I think?

It was really cold, but dammit, this is Canada,
and this is what it's all about.
