At first we watched the snow as it started to fall from the comfort of the couch.
Then we went out front... and stood in the snow and caught a few flakes in our hands and hair.
This was Alayna's first experience with snow. Last April when we had a few inches of snow she slept in until 9:00 and then stayed inside and didn't know any different. This year she loved it.
But then I asked them if they'd like to play in it, and so we put on shoes, thin jackets, and slippers for me, and went out and played.
I love the look of wonder on their faces as they looked at the snow...
Ethan's favorite snow activity.... eating snow!
And yes, I wore slippers in the snow... and had a blanket over my head to protect my DSLR while I tried to snap a few photos of the kids, lol. It was pretty dark out and I had to have my ISO cranked up to 2000, so the pictures aren't the sharpest.... but they do preserve the memories, and that's all that matters :)
This cracked me up.... the kids were "skiing". They were shuffling through he snow pretending to ski. Since I actually love skiing this made me proud ;) Maybe I can take Ethan up the hill one of these days and see how he does on skiis.
And this is always my favorite ironic shot.... a palm tree with snow on the fronds. I love living in So Cal!
20 minutes and two freezing kids later and we dashed inside to a warm bath while I made dinner and Matt tried to watch the Daytona race which was rain delayed from yesterday.
Certainty an eventful Monday :) I love days that take unexpected turns and end up making memories.
