Finally, we have snow!
And enough to require shoveling!
Enough to make snow angels!
Enough to go sledding!
Enough to look pretty when gazing out the window!
Trees are coated, it is lovely!
Norah and I enjoyed shoveling. Well, I did the shoveling. She enjoyed making snow angels, had Purple Teddy make snow angels, helped Teddy sled, and enjoyed the yard with snow! Then we walked to the park about 1.5 blocks away. This park has an outdoor pool, a pond, benches, and a few picnic tables - no playground. It is a great little park to fly a kite, fish, swim, enjoy storybook picnics, watch ducks and geese, play under the willows, and just a place to walk to after dinner. We love it. It is mostly for water retention and the grassy field is bowl shaped. The bottom is usually soggy during non-winter months. The little hill was perfect for early morning sledding. We had a good time outside this morning. The Lil' Miss lasted about an hour and a half outside on the this warm and balmy 24 degree morning!
When Simon returns from school, we will go sledding at the big hill. Perhaps we will see the neighborhood when we go! We have waited practically a year for these few precious inches! I'd say we only got about 2-3 inches. Possible snow through tomorrow and again on Thursday may bring us more. One can only hope!
Look what I found!
