On the heels of a truly disappointing snow storm a few days ago, (it never actually snowed) we finally got some snow last night and into most of today. When we woke up this morning the ground was already covered and the kids were eager to get out and play. With a ‘feels like’ temp of about 10 degrees we held off until this afternoon. Up until then we had a lego playdate with the neighbor cousins, ate lunch, and took a desperately needed nap.
After waking up, we dug out all the snow clothes and bundled everyone up. They lasted about 30-40 minutes outside, playing with a neighbor and then helping to shovel. Baby E was the least amused with the snow because his multiple layers (along with snow pants that were three sizes to large) kept making walking a little difficult and frustrating. The big kids enjoyed munching on the snow and cleaning it off the vehicles.
Then this evening we had dinner with the neighbor cousins, so much fun was had by all.
We assured the kids that the snow would be sticking around for a few days since the temps are supposed to stay well below freezing for a little while, so hopefully they will get some more time to play in it.
