And there were presents, of course. Brian and I got Philip a red Radio Flyer wagon (complete with seat belts and cup holders). I don't have a picture to post, but I imagine it will show up in future blogging. Grandma and Grandpa Platt got Philip some adorable Merrell shoes and a few Carhart outfits (that are just a little big for right now), Grandma and Grandpa Bickmeier got him tub toys, a very fancy Elmo book, and a pillow to match the quilt his Grandma is making him (with pictures of all his aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents). Can't wait to see it! Philip's Grandma is an expert quilter. From his cousins, Philip got lots of summer clothes and a somewhat noisy car/ramp toy (of which I would expect no less from my sister).

Today we took a drive south to enjoy the sunshine and get out of the house for a few hours. As we suspected the mountains were out and spectacular. I'm not a good enough photographer to do them justice, but here is at least a taste.
This is taken from a high road overlooking the Alaskan Range.
It was even warm enough to eat outside in the sun!
Philip tries a bit of Brian's cone.

Today Brian and I took Philip for his first snowmachine ride on Brian's new snowmachine. Instead of getting a mountain sled, Brian bought a trail sled with a second (very comfy) seat. "Better to accommodate the entire family", he said.
The temperature was around 45 above today (and we both had the day off), so we all went out cruising around the flood plains. We bundled Philip up and put him in his infant carrier (which is getting a little small).This was a big adventure for the little guy, but he was very brave...and we didn't go more than 10 or 15mph. It was so nice being out and about in the snow. He loved it!
The view from the top of the flood plains- clear mountains.
