When we got up (too few hours later!), we found ourselves in the middle of a snowstorm.
Naturally, we wasted no time in piling on our winter gear and heading outside to shovel the driveway and play in the snow.
|Official starting measure: 4 inches|
(Finished with probably around 6 inches)
Unfortunately, my capacity for winter play is limited by the fact that I don't have full snow regalia anymore. After finishing the driveway (and winning a few snowball fights) my peacoat was damp and I was getting chilly, so I went inside. The kids, however, took the adventures to the as-yet pristine backyard.
When Brynn came home from school, she joined in, too (she's the giant pink snowsuit). Under her expert direction, they "baked" snow cakes (that eventually morphed into snow mountains) on the patio table.
Finally even the kids wore out. They came in and we warmed up with peppermint hot chocolate. Yum!
