Snow Day!

Last week we had our first snow days of this winter season. Growing up in Portland, I know to be grateful for any snow we get….because some years there isn’t any at all. However, I have to say that having such pitiful snow for a day off school was pretty disappointing. The boys could barely make snow angels and they definitely could not really do much sledding! We all had a blast while we were out in the snow, but after we came in I was told that we would be needing a trip to the mountain for some REAL snow ASAP.

Here are some pictures of the boys:

Simon had fun trying to catch snowflakes on his tongue.

Caleb was a roly-poly ball of outer garments. He could barely move, and his boots kept falling off and taking his socks with them. Poor baby was so snug except for bare feet in the snow! I kept trying to put the boots back on and they kept coming back off. He enjoyed watching his brothers play, and crawled around a bit, but mostly looked like he was just trying to take it all in.

Here is Elias making a snow angel. He lasted longer than any of us out in the snow, and ended up playing by himself in the backyard for awhile.

Nathan got to work from home on the first snow day. He came out for a bit on a break to play. You can seem him in the background smirking after giving Simon a snowball to throw at me.

Ah… family fun! These are the days I want to remember.
