Snow & Sledding

Vance was running a fever yesterday morning, but by today he said he was feeling better, and there was snow! I waited until the afternoon to make sure his fever did not come back. I was sooooo glad he was feeling better and not running a fever so we could enjoy a rare snow day!

We started out playing in the yard

Vance and i made snow angels. QQ could not quiet make herself lay on her back, but she seemed to enjoy looking at the angels after Vance and I made them

QQ has been a gourmet snow & ice taster for her third winter now. She used to do this when she was barely walking, and I thought she would just grow out of it!

We found this great place to sled in a park that is just a few blocks from our house. I did not even think about sledding until we drove past the park while we were out running errands. Doh!

Kid Catastrophe kept falling up the hill because she's a clumsy little toddler. Danger Boy kept falling because he was wearing cowboy boots because we have no snow boots for him. Cowboy boots keep out the wetness, but they have about zero traction!

After an hour playing outside, and then an hour sledding, the kids were tired out. We had fun, and we did not really get cold. We went through about three pairs of mittens and gloves for each kid, since they kept getting wet.

Note for Tired Mom for next time--sledding is thirsty work! Bring drinks!

How in the world did you get good pictures of snowangels. I tried but mine turned out awful. Looks like the kids had a good snow day.

I think the snow angels pics turned out good because it was super sunny out today. My pics only turn out that good on sunny day.

The kids weren't the only ones who had a good snow day! I had tons of fun as well.

I used to sled with my mom and dad in the same park. Cool!
