Brief Moment in the Snow.

Sunday, February 6, 2011

If we're lucky, we get a very light dusting of snow once a year.  This year the ground was nicely frozen in advance, so we knew that if we got snow, it would stick.  We woke Friday morning to a beautiful white frosting covering everything.  We were all so excited to get out in it.  We put on double pants and double shirts, our warmest boots, coats, gloves, and hats.  And we set out for a winter adventure.

Look, it's really SNOW!

We tried to make a snow kitty, but that didn't work very well.  There wasn't a lot of snow, and what we had was pretty dry and wasn't exactly made for detailed sculpting.  Bummer.

We had great plans for making a baseball snowman.  But we discovered that snow is actually COLD.  And it's slippery.  And when you fall down, it's quite wet.  It's a little warmer inside a tiny house.


Truth be told, our winter adventure was quite a short one.  But it was fun while it lasted.  

Come again, snow!
