Then about 15 minutes later I looked out and our car was covered!
Clarissa had fun walking home from school, but then for a bit in the afternoon it started raining again. It rained/snowed all night long and in the morning, Mason was SOOOOOO excited to walk to school in the snow (obviously a southern boy who had never done this before).
Richard dropped Clarissa off on his way to work. He saw Mason arriving from his walk....he was cold!
I caught a ride with a neighbor when it was time to pick up Clarissa mid-day which was great! When it was time to pick Mason up, Clarissa and I got bundled up and walked (still snowing!) to pick up Mason. While we waited for him, Clarissa mastered making snow angels!
Unfortunately, this snow was a light and fluffy powder...so making snow balls and snowmen wasn't happening....but one can play snoccer!
Mason was off on his scooter playing with the older kids....so I didn't get any pictures of him.
Richard got a picture of the some of the perfectly formed snowflakes I caught on my hat. It kept snowing all night long.....so Saturday when we woke up...all the foot prints (and soccer balls) were covered with snow. We went out and played in the yard in the morning and Mason and Richard went around the corner and sledded down a short little hill on the corner. In the afternoon we found the perfect sledding hill. It is at the kids' school. There is a hill separating the soccer and baseball fields. We went there Saturday afternoon and again on Sunday (after it kept lightly snowing through Saturday and Saturday night, finally stopping mid day on Sunday...so nearly 36 hours of snowing...we think maybe it was a total of about 4 inches of accumulation).
Mason being a good big brother giving Clarissa a ride down the hill.
Clarissa catching a ride down with Daddy. Mason making it up to the top of hill, getting ready to head down again.
Making the hike back up as Mason whizzes by.....
Richard forgetting to hold on apparently....lol.
Clarissa's preferred method of getting to the snow hill on Sunday....mommy pulling her while she rides backwards!
I grew up with snow....but not with snow covered mountains....so here are some pretty scenic shots.
Sheep grazing on a snowy hill. There was a guy, as well as, some cows and a horse to the left of the sheep. But due to the fencing I could not get a decent shot.
So the best way to end a post on how much fun we had during our snowy weekend is a video clip of Clarissa giggling all the way down the hill!
