Not sure about you, but in Virginia, our first day of Spring brought a welcomed and long awaited snow storm! After a few small hits and a lot of misses this winter, I was convinced we were getting jipped of snow completely this year. But then yesterday mother nature was like, “Hahaha….just kidding!” and dumped about 5 or so inches of snow on us. And appropriately on the first day of Spring, of course. 😉
While I personally would’ve preferred a blue sky and sunshine kind of first day of Spring, I had one little girl who was super excited about the snow and FINALLY getting to go outside to play! I always say that we just need one good snow and I’m good for the Winter. So, yeah….we’re good now. Bring on the warmer weather!
After a solid 30 minutes of getting these little babes in their snow gear, I am happy to report that we lasted longer than 30 seconds in the cold. Probably close to 30 minutes which is pretty good for us! Growing up, my brother and I would spend hours outside sledding and playing. Unfortunately, we really don’t have any good hills in our neighborhood for sledding and Daddy has been working out of town this week so it’s a little bit tougher on Mom to juggle both kiddos. But if the snow is still around tomorrow, I might bring Josie to the park for a little extra fun. 🙂
Here are a few other pictures from our snow day. But first…a few of the moments before we even made it out the door!
Isla was really confused about her snow suit and boots at first–they were a wee bit too big making it so she could barely move. She had just about given up at this point…haha…but hey, she was warm and toasty!
“Help me Mama…” 😉
Yay, we made it outside!
Snow angels….lots of snow angels…all over the yard. 🙂
Her first real snow! Last year she was too little to go out in the cold.
I fixed her ear immediately after this picture. Like I said, all of her hand me down gear is a little bit big still.
A little snow day sliding. 🙂
After catching big sis on the slide, I look over and see this…
But she was fine! See, thumbs up!! Haha.
After playtime was over we came inside to warm up and whipped up some hot chocolate with extra whip for this beauty! Now we’re going to cozy up on the couch and watch Frozen…but of course!
Little sis even got a little 🙂
My silly girl. If she only knew just how much I absolutely adore her.
Happy Snow Day Everyone!
