awesome jumping Andrea and Jedd photo
My dad wanted a nice family photo out in the snow so we put on coats, hats, gloves, and boots and headed out to the back yard.  It snowed the previous day and would have been pretty for photos except it would be hard to see us through the heavy snowflakes.  With a bright sun and fresh snow today, we tracked out to the pines in the back and set up the tripod.  We got a decent family photo and then decided to take some fun shots, including a jumping family shot.  That didn't turn out so well, even after several tries, but we all had a good time laughing at our attempts.  Dad went in early to watch the ball game but the rest of us stayed out and played.  We took some more jumping shots, then moved on to cartwheels (why cartwheels in the snow, I don't know).  Then it was snowballs and jumping into snow thrown up in the air.  By the time we finished, we were all covered in snow and out of breath from laughing.  The temp was around 0°F (-18°C) but we sure had fun playing in the snow!

Could use some of that snow here on Phu Quoc to keep the beer cold longer!
