It must officially be spring in Colorado! I say this because we woke up to about 12" of snow this morning here. Monday it was sunny and 70 degrees! School was closed for all the kids, and I didn't have to go to work either. March and April are the snowiest months here, so I'm sure this isn't the last we've seen of the white stuff for this spring. Here is a picture of the cooler that our milk is delivered to, just to give you an idea of how much snow we really have. Its a regular sized cooler.
Here is a picture of Sara and Lexi playing in the snow. Sara has never really played in the snow before, so this is her first real time getting to explore. Its hard to get around in this much snow when you can't walk, so Lexi tried to help by walking in front of her and stomping it down.
This is Grandpa helping the girls pile up some snow to turn into a snowman. It was really more like a snow pile with some rocks for eyes when it was done.
Sara not only played in the snow but crawled in the driveway and splashed in the water from the snow starting to melt already. She had a great time, and was not happy when it was time to come in.
I don't know if her snow suit will ever come clean! She had a great time, and that's what really matters. Sara started crying when she saw how dirty she was once we got her inside. Nothing that a little snack can't fix though.
Everybody had fun, and it was nice that it wasn't freezing cold outside. The older kids stayed out longer of course, but 20 min was plenty for my baby's first time out in the snow. She's already asked to go back out, but I told her she had to wait until her snow suit was washed and dried before that could happen. If the snow is still around tomorrow, maybe we can go out then.
