Winter Wonderland in the summer

On a recent walk in the park, we came upon an interesting sight. Karensa went running into the "fluff" calling out SNOW, SNOW!" The white fluff is actually seeds from the abundance of cottonwood trees in the area (which by the way have nothing to do with cotton, it is a type of Poplar tree whose seeds just happen to look like little pillowy clouds or snow to a couple of kids). They had a wonderful time and despite Nathan not sticking around long enough for me to get individual pictures of him I got some good pictures of the adventure. 

I am just thankful that we are still enjoying summer and the real white stuff is at least a couple months more away from coming down!
