    Christmas tree haul

    This weekend we headed out as a family to pick up the Christmas tree


    Untitled by rperks1, on Flickr

    it was an absolute blast, as with most things, way more fun than in the car, and actually easier to load and unload. The weather was cool, but perfect.

    My wife is still comming around to the pracicality of the long/large hauls, but I think this on will stick as a family tradition.
