Snow Day...


Last Wednesday we had a snow day! It was sooooo exciting. The best part was that the University was closed too, so we had Ethan to ourselves all day (besides a few hours of studying in the afternoon. :) But what a treat.

We haven't had real snow on the ground since the middle of January, I believe. So this was exciting. I had almost given up on getting more sledding weather. We, of course, bundled up and spent a lot of the day outdoors. I love the picture of the kiddies above, all puffy, hot and waiting to go outside. We put the extra layer of socks on Ben-Ben because he can not stand to get any snow on him at all...even if just a tiny bit touches his wrist or ankles...it's over. hehe.
In less than a day of snowing, the ground was covered with tons of fresh, clean, fluffy flakes. Beautiful.
We decided to go to our city's park, which is just a few blocks away, because we can sled there AND play on the equipment. Fun, fun. In the pictures above, poor, little Benjamin is getting cleaned off after a face plant. Anna is making a snow angel. And then the kiddies are following daddy to the merry-go-round. "Wait for me!" Anna and Ben had such a good work out that day...the snow was up to their waist in a few spots. (It was a good work out for Ethan and I too - pulling kids on sleds, running around, snow ball fight, etc. :)
And finally, two more pictures of our sweets playing. What a simple, yet joyful day! Loved it.
(We had a fun Valentine's too, but I'll get to that in a bit.)
