Well today we were all tired so we just took a quicky little jaunt to Bitburg, a fifteen minute drive from here. There is a "Super Walmart type" of store there.....it has a little bit of everything from groceries, to housewares, to clothing to alcohol & a bakery. It's VERY SMALL compared to USA Wal-marts but had that similar "get anything you may need in one spot" feel. It was OK, but nothing to really report on it.....HOWEVER on the way home....oh on the way home!!!
As we were leaving the market we noted there were very thick clouds between us and the apt and sure enough five minutes into the drive it started to snow. And I am not talking littles bits of snowflakes here and there....oh no, I am talking AMAZINGLY LARGE & BEAUTIFUL snowflakes that drifted ever so silently to the ground, each chasing the one below itself in quick succession....high in number and dense in population it was a beautiful snowfall. None of it really "stuck" but it was so simply and silently gorgeous that we stopped at an overlook to take a few photos! Here's one of Adam and I with the valley behind us. Note how the sky goes to nothing...that's because it was WHITE - filled with the large snowflakes you can see on our heads, hats and coats...
Then of course Adam tried his best to grab a quick family shot while the kids tried desperately to catch snowflakes on their tongues, hands and anything else they could! LOL
Sorry today's post isn't filled with more interesting chit chat, we really just had a low key day, I took a nap and made dinner...that's about it! :)
Until tomorrow!!! :D
