a taste of snow
last weekend before we were hit by that wonderful cold that gifted me those lovely cold sores and knocked the wind out of the hubs for at least 4 days, we actually had some snow. this winter hasn't been a bad one, compared to the last few years where we were snowed in without power and only our wood stove to keep us warm on several occasions. i am grateful i didn't have to deal with that trying to keep a baby warm and all.
so when we finally got a little bit of snow we were eager to take the mister outside to try the new sled he got for christmas. unfortunately for us with that snow came a windchill that again kept us bunkered down in the house and we were only able to make it outside the day the snow finally decided to melt.
we own an acre of property that is entirely located on a hill side perfect for sledding. the mister wasn't quite sure about the whole process though. he kept sticking his glove down into the snow while his dad pulled him around the yard, trying to scoop up the snow. silly boy.
if we get more snow this will definitely be repeated. we are also planning a little get-away to a place with far more snow soon. the sled will come with us and hopefully be used on lots of walks.
on the inside, i am secretly longing for spring weather.
