Yesterday we woke up to our first snow day, which was really exciting considering this is the kids first real experience with snow since they’ve only known winters in Hawaii. It started as lite rain and mixed flurries and the kids were ecstatic, Zion ran up to me and said:
“Mommy, it’s so many snow, I can’t count all this snow!”
It stopped raining and the snow got heavier which made for the perfect snow day! A few hours before I took the kids out Brown Sugar had to go out to “test it out” by running laps around the driveway (weirdo) and he also had to dust the snow off the internet satellite because it was acting up #countryproblems.
After he fixed the internet I waited until the snow stopped to see if it would stick. After spending a few hours in the theater room trying to watch some movies they hardly ever watch entire movies in there, we ended up migrating to the family room where Zion was quickly reminded of the snow and he continually asked me to take them outside so that he could make “Noballs”. I gathered up their things, which was a task because Brown Sugar was cooking, bundled them up (Zion’s coat is currently MIA-don’t even ask), and we headed out.
My main objective when I took them out was to walk them to the mailbox, admire the snow and walk back, it didn’t happen that way. Vayda just had to taste the snow, she will eat just about anything once. Zion finally got to make his beloved “Noballs” and Zaniel decided he’d like to taste the snow too.
They made footprints, threw snow in the woods, got scared when they heard noises lol, threw snow at me smh, and chased me down the driveway.
Vayda cried because that’s what she does, I think she was crying because her glove came off.
On our way back inside Zion decided that the best snowball came off our car and he used me to try them out.
He brought a snowball inside and quickly decided he didn’t think it all the way through and decided to toss it out.
Our first snow day was amazing and I’m glad we got to spend it in our new house together. How was your first snow day?
