riday/Saturday we were blessed with snow. I’m not talking a dusting, we are talking almost a foot! Last time I measured it was 11 inches on the ground. Typically I am against snow because we normally get it during the week when I have to work my full time job. I do not like to drive in the snow or any bad weather for that matter. Even worse after my car accident. This time we were expected to get it over the weekend and be able to ENJOY IT… Kinda.. Thursday before the snow I took Riley to the doctor. Found out she had server cold, strep throat and ear infection. I went to the doctor that same afternoon and was also diagnosed with a strep throat. So our amazing snow weekend was kinda filled upside down. We did not let the bugs get to us. We still were able to enjoy the snow. We watched it fall all day on Saturday and went out and played in it Saturday for about 10 minutes. Let me tell you Riley hated the snow last year. I mean HATED IT. This year she was head over heals to play in it. I bundled her up nice and good. Took us about 30 minutes to get ready for a 10 minute adventure. haha Well we did this routine twice. That afternoon we went out and sled. OMG Riley’s laugh is priceless. It was kind of evil.. haha The video is on my instagram if you want to see it. We had such a good time in the snow while we had the chance. We sled. We fell. We threw snow at each other. We ate snow and made snow cream. After we played in the snow and the sun went down we watched the second round of entertainment… Watching people drive up our steep street to get out our neighborhood. People will try as hard as they can to get up the hill, release the gas petal and slide right back down because they do not have enough traction or power to get up the hill. So we watched people do this until it was time for bed.
We didn’t go out in the snow anymore of the weekend but I must admit Saturday was AWESOME! I love days like this I get to spend with Riley. Sick or not we made the most of it.
Now rain has taken away the snow and the weather was up in the 70’s yesterday. (Which I love!! BRING ON SPRING) But I will totally accept another snow day with my baby.
Here is what we got in our few minutes outside….
Have a great weekend everyone!
