Happy Friday, though it definitely doesn’t feel like one! Like many of you, the crazy weather over the past few days has pretty much shut down our regularly scheduled week. Although it pretty much only snowed for one night, the bitter
cold weather has kept everything icy & all of the neighborhood roads are still pretty dangerous, today is the fourth day we have off of school in a row! We certainly aren’t complaining, it’s been such a fun change & the perfect cure to the winter blues we had been starting to feel after a long season inside.
We had Monday off for the holiday & knew it was going to snow later that evening, so
Waverly & I got up early to do a little shopping and have breakfast out with my parents before we would be homebound for a while. Along with the rest of the city. 😉 By the time we got home & Waverly went down for her nap, the flurries started to fall and we were able to catch a few before it got too dark to play. Waverly loved it, she definitely didn’t remember the snow we got last year & was so amazed by every snowflake. The cutest.
We ended up getting about four inches overnight, with a giant sheet of ice on top. The ice made it hard to play, or to make snowman or snowballs, not to mention it was a little scary for the toddler & six-month pregnant lady trying to make their way through it. Yet we did make it out, with Waverly in her 12-month Gap snowsuit from last year, I was so excited to get one more use out of it & even more excited for my husband to pull her around on his bodyboard down the street. She loved it & would have definitely stayed out there all day long.
It was all fun & games until Waverly asked me to jump on there with her, I’m pretty sure I would have broken the board this year. 😉 I did manage a picture of our littlest baby girl’s first time in the snow! She was kicking the entire time we were outside, probably from the crazy cold, but I couldn’t help but think about a couple years down the road when we will have two babes to make these memories with. These really are my favorite kind of days, moments I hope my girls will remember forever.
Wishing you all the happiest (& warmest) of weekends with your sweet families!
