…in time for Valentine’s Day! I can’t believe it, but we did get snow. Not just a dusting or flurries, real snow! It started yesterday around 2:30 or so and by 4:30 there was already enough on the ground to coat it. We ended up with about 6 inches total and we made the most of it.
We went outside around 4:30 yesterday to check out the snow and play a little before heading to a friend’s house. Drew has seen snow before, but nothing like this. He was so cute. I expected him to run outside and just get right into it, but he took his time and just observed from the porch for a while, taking it all in. I told him he could go down onto the sidewalk or in the grass and he asked if the grass was still grassy! I talked him into catching snowflakes on his tongue, but when some got in his eye, he was done. Within five minutes he was at the door saying he wanted to go in because he was cold – I guess he truly is my child. Snow is beautiful, but give me a beach any day of the week!
Today was a different story, we were out playing by 8:15 this morning building a snowman, throwing snowballs (Drew’s favorite), playing with Whiskey (our dog), and just having a great time. I tried to get Drew to do a snow angel, but he just said, “No, you do it, I don’t want to.” So that was the end of that. We came in to warm up and then headed back out before lunch. The second time around he did do a snow angel without much prompting and we even got to walk around the neighborhood and count/criticize the other snowmen. Each one we passed Drew would say, “He doesn’t have eyes,” or “He doesn’t have a hat.” He was quite the snowman judge! Anyway below are a few pictures from the last couple days, enjoy!
