Team Wheaton took a little vacation this week, to charge up our batteries before the work of the new year really gets going. So here’s a few pictures I took while we were away:
We stopped at a truck stop to get gas, and I put on this stupid stripper cowboy hat, because I thought it was silly. I was wearing my Wesley Crusher hoodie, and Anne said, “Oh my god, you’re Sparks McGee!” It wasn’t what I was going for, but, like Sparks himself, it was a happy accident.
When we got to Yosemite, the sun was about to set, and it made the valley absolutely beautiful.
I wish I could claim credit for making this magnificent Jabba Snowhutt, but alas I just walked past it.
We hiked up to Mirror Lake during some seriously heavy snowfall. I really loved how the world looked black and white.
I took the obligatory selfie, and Anne did the obligatory photobomb.
When we got back to the hotel, my boys were very tired from hiking 5 miles in the snow. I love that, even though they’re in their 20s, they are still my little guys at times like this.
It was a lovely trip, even though we almost got snowed in (that would not have been the worst thing, to be honest). I read a whole lot, played some games with the family, and relaxed with my favorite people on the planet.
