"That's not rain, kids, it's SNOW!! It's SNOWING!!" I shouted. Now we were ALL excited!

It snowed all morning, but didn't stick much and by lunchtime even what had stuck earlier was melting away. I feared this would be the only snow we saw all season and the kids didn't even get to play in it! But around mid-naptime the snow started to stick again, at least in the grass, so after nap, I bundled the kids up and out we went!

There wasn't a whole lot of snow-playing. There just wasn't enough of it to play in. Mostly the kids just ran around in circles and enjoyed being outside for a change. Oh, well. At least they got to be in it a little.
BUT THEN...it snowed in the night and we woke up to white streets! More snow! But it was also much colder. Nevertheless, I was determined the kids would get to play in this snow too! maybe we could even build a little snowman!
Do you have any idea how long it takes to layer and bundle four two-year-olds for 20-degree weather? Well, it took me over an hour! By the time we finally got outside it was already starting to melt away in the sunny spots and most of our morning was gone. But we made the best of it! No snowman though. The snow wouldn't stick to itself. Might as well have tried to use dry sand!
It may not have been much, but we had a blast! We hope you enjoy your snow days too!
