Sophia's wish to go see snow

When six year old Sophia was asked what her one wish would be, she knew exactly what she wanted to do! She wished to go see snow and build a snowman! Sophia and her family traveled to Bangor, Maine and did just that.

Since Sophia had never seen snow before, the minute the plane landed she could not believe she was seeing snow and could not wait to get into it. She had only ever seen snow on TV and in the movies. The morning after arriving in Maine, the first thing Sophia did was go outside to make snow angels.

Sophia got to enjoy all different outdoor activities with her family.  They spent time at The Burgess Farm where they got to go sleigh riding, sledding, snow tubing and building snow men. When the family arrived at the farm, snow sculptures had been made to welcome Sophia and her family. The whole community got involved in welcoming Sophia to Maine and giving her snow-themed gifts to take back to Florida with her.This trip is one that Sophia's family will hold on and treasure forever.
