Snow Day: A quick trip to Mirabeau Park

It’s here! It’s here! It’s finally here!

We had a pretty green Christmas in Spokane, and that just didn’t sit well with this born and raised Canadian.

I grew up in a land far, far away where we’d have winters with snow banks up to the top of the telephone poles.

So, a white Christmas is kind of a necessity.

You know … just like Bing Crosby, a Spokanite, sang:

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

Bella and I rushed off to Mirabeau Point Park, a Spokane Valley spot where I’ve done several dog photography sessions.

So naturally, it’s #bellaapproved.

We were even treated to a brief snowfall, but it quickly turned to rain.

And by Christmas morning, all the snow was gone.

More to come

As I sit here tip-tapping away on my keyboard, we’re expecting another snowfall this afternoon.

I couldn’t be more excited!

What’s more fun than playtime in the snow with your dog?

Check out these two West Highland White Terriers I had a photography session with before Christmas. Their mama loved this composite where I “faked” the snow.
