Let's get out of town

A few weeks ago we decided that we needed to get out of town for the day. So went on a drive to Palisades reservoir. We were surpised when we got there to see that there was still quite a lot of snow. Shane was even more surprised when he stepped onto the snow bank and sunk in up to his knee (sorry no pictures of that one I was laughing too hard). Mason of course then had to climb on the snow, and was actually a bit disappointed that he didn't sink in too. Max got really excited when he saw one of his favorite things a ball. He stood for a long time reaching and reaching and repeating one of his best words "bah, bah, bah" (translation "I want that ball, I really, really want it." I explained to him that there was just no way that we were going to be able to get that ball down, but still he begged, "bah, bah, bah."
In case you can't tell that is a red marker ball on the overhead power line. Do you remember when you still believed that your parents could do anything? Apparently Max is a believer because he truly expected that Shane or I would somehow traverse that 50 foot distance between the ground and the wire and get him that ball. Max was just distraught over not being able to get the ball, but luckily Shane was able to distract him by teaching him to throw snowballs.
