Finally, we actually got a snow day WITH SNOW!!!
I thought this day would never come. In fact, I haven't seen this much snow since we moved away from South Carolina. Our first winter being married, it snowed about 8 inches and we walked to Walmart from our apartment, slipping and sliding on the ice. So much fun.
Anyway, for about 3 days they have forecasted "4-6 inches of snow". I thought, yeah right. They've told us this before. But last night it actually snowed. A lot. About 5 inches to be exact!
We bundled Quinn up first thing this morning. Here he is with his daddy. I think I should have put a hat on both of their bald heads! Quinn is wearing his footie pajamas, a fleece pair of sweatpants, another pair of sweatpants on top of that, a fleece hoodie, his big jacket, his hat, and boots.
I tried to show Quinn some snow, but he wasn't too interested at first. He was trying to figure out what all this white stuff was.
Here he is standing in our side yard. You can see Buddy's footprints over Quinn's shoulder. We really got a good bit.
I wanted Quinn to enjoy the snow, so I gently threw a little snowball at him. I wasn't sure what he would think of it, but....
....I think he likes snow!!
After that he plopped down in a snow bank and played with the snow. Unfortunately, I did not think to buy him mittens this year...since there hasn't been any snow, so his hands got cold. We came in pretty quickly after this.
But not before getting a neighbor to take this cute picture of us together. I had fun playing with my son today in the snow. I think I'm going to buy him a snow suit on sale soon, and save it for next year...just in case!
What a fun day spent making memories. But it will be even more fun next year when he's a little bit older.
