Last week we got two snow days for barely 3 inches of snow. But we knew how to take full advantage! We relaxed, I cleaned a bit, I caught up on some projects, and we watched some movies. But when our neighbors called to ask if we wanted to sled, we were more than happy to leave our snowed in (iced in) cocoon. We bundled up, threw our sleds in the back of our neighbor's truck, and off we went to find the best hill. Okay, it wasn't the BEST hill, but it was the best for a 2 year old and 4 year old.
Yes, we teased Brian about looking like cousin Eddie with his hat. I do every time he wears it.
Our neighbors, Neal and Cindy took turns taking the littles down the hill, too. Rowan had to warm up to sledding, she thought it looked a little too fast. So she sat back and watched for a while, and then decided to give it a go.
It was one of those days that was cold, but so sunny and bright it felt warm and we were shedding hats and gloves after walking up the hill a few times. We stayed out a lot longer than we intended because of the warmth.
We had a little snowball fight just in time for the wind to kick up, so we packed it in to go home. The littles practically fell asleep on the 5 minute car ride, they were so exhausted.
We went back to our house, stoked the fire, and sat around chatting, playing, and drinking hot chocolate. It was a memory making day. I'm so grateful for good neighbors with good ideas.
