We've had an incredibly mild winter so far, but real snow finally came this past week. Last year, A hated the cold, we had a terrible winter, and I was really getting claustrophobic inside our house; this post is proof I was about to lose my mind Cabin Fever . It's just amazing how a child can change in a year.
This is what is was like this weekend here:
We did some sledding, ran in the snow, and made sort-of snowmen...
We convinced him to come back inside and had some hot cocoa afterwards. It was great!
The next day was incredibly sunny. I just love seeing this view of my backyard when I get up!
But it was also terribly cold: -2 F (-15 C). I wasn't sure that it was such a good idea to head outside, but A begged and begged. So we thought that if we didn't stay outside too long, and he was well bundled up, it would be OK. A usually hates putting clothes on, but he understood that it was necessary and didn't complain. I have to say that the hood I bought from One Step Ahead is really perfect: it covers everything other that the face, including the neck!
What do you do to make winter fun with your kids?
