Mount Washington

Our dad climbed Mount Washington a few days ago with three friends of his.
The temperature the day of the climb was 32 degrees and the windchill made it feel like it was 16 degrees - brrrrrrrrr
Yup, they had snow!

 This doesn't look anything like our Sleeping Giant hiking grounds, thank goodness!
 Dad said the wind almost blew him over!
 His smile must be frozen in place, right!
 Okay, now this doesn't look so bad!
 Look what he brought us!
We don't get to eat those, Molly. They're really for mom!
 What were we doing while dad was away?
Staying warm and cozy - that's for sure.
 And we were doing a lot of this kind of stuff!

We're glad you're back safe and sound, dad!  We missed you!

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

Now that is just to cold for us. It's in the 90's here so maybe a little snow would be OK.

Love the pictures of you 2 together!!

Hope you are playing nicely Mitch and Molly :-)

What a climb! Hope no frostbite was found on Mt. Washington. And we are glad that you guys play bitey face, it is our favorite game, but we thought maybe you were too well behaved to indulge.

Welcome home dad! That was quite a climb!

Thank you for dropping by! I've received the message but I hadn't got time to post it. Ok, it's a couple of days from the results and I'm hoping that Phillip wins! :P

Gosh, did you kids fight?? What's all that eyeballing?

Sue said...

In Portie homes bitey face is called "sharking". You guys are good at it. We lie down on our sides and shark along with grest sound effects.

My Vickie salutes your dad for doing that. What a hike that is. I would love to do it one day too but My Vickie says it is too far away for us now. I like what you did while he was gone too. All around fun for everyone.

OMD OMD... PLEASE tell me that your dad did NOT see any of the dreaded Snowmen up there in their summer hiding places. {{{{SHIVER}}}}

I am sure that your dad is even MORE glad to be home... to be with YOU TWO!!

We drove up Mt. Washington many summers ago and when we got out of the car we almost blew away and it was cold then...so I can see that it would be so cold now. Brrr...M and M are getting along mahvelously, dahlinks!

Clive said...

Wow, what brillant photos! They brought back such great memories for us. Murray and family did Mount Washington a few years ago but in August and with no snow!!

It sure looked much colder for your poor Dad! But fab photos!!

take care
Clive & Murray

Mango said...

OK, I am totally loving those googly eyed bitey face photos. Now that's what I call FUN!

I am super impressed your dad climbed that big mountain. Back a hundred years ago when my momma was "in shape" she tried to do the same thing but she didn't get very far above the tree line before she totally wimped out and turned back.

Slobbers,
Mango

Can't believe he went lookin' for cold!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Gosh! Did your dad really climb that mountain? He rocks!
I hope he brought you a doggie cookie or something - since you don't get those M&M's!
I love your bitey face pictures!

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Your daddy is quite a guy! We have snow in our mountains too, but neither of our folks would climb up them like that. They're not as fit. bol. Molly is growing into quite the young lady. Have a great weekend.
