A Second Christmas Trip

A few days after Christmas, we went to Victoria, KS, to visit Dan's Mom.  I took a lot of pictures for two reasons.  First, I had gotten a new camera for Christmas.  Second, we went out hiking on the Sand Plum Nature Trail in the snow. 

"To Grandmother's house we go..."

Some presents were opened.

Grandma helped Joseph put on his new hat.

We went to visit the Nativity for which Dan's brother, Joe, built the stable.

Then we headed out onto the nature trail.

Dan's brother, Chuck, showed the kids some tracks in the snow and mud.

Like this turkey track.

We tramped across the snowy bridge.

And up the hill on the other side.

Daddy and the boys.

See the twin steeples in the background?

You absolutely must walk only on the snow if you are two.

Anthony tested out the turkey caller. 

Logs on the side of the trail cannot be ignored.


Climbing up out of the creek area.

Is this the javelin throw?


Mommy and the kids.  If you look close, you can see Catherine made a little snowman.

Back at Grandma's house, we were in time for a snack.

Big hug!

Dan and his sister, Julie.

On the way out of town, we stopped to visit Grandpa's grave and say a prayer.  Anthony obviously did not want to be in the picture.
