Snowy MinneSNOWta

As I was walking to my "warmed" up van tonight to run an errand, I thought to myself "I can't believe I grew up in this crazy winterland!" So many winters gone by with so much snow, slush, "chocolate snow" (according to Logan), whipping wind, frozen boogers, cold finger tips and noses, and hat hair. It is fun to be back in the thick of it watching my little guy Logan enjoy the snow so much. He has been asking since the minute we saw snow on our drive to touch it and then to play in it when we got here. So we braved the single digits, bundled up and went out to play in the white fluffy snow. Otis was of course, more than happy to join us and chased after the snow balls thrown between us both. Here are a few photos of our enjoyment:-)
Is there anything as a child you did that you get to share now with your children/or look forward to doing it with your future child?

My parents house...the snow drifts are about 2-4 feet here

Otis sunk in the snow! Enjoying his time

At least 4 feet here.

Logan having a blast

Using a scooper to fling the snow around, at me and Otis

Sliding down the bank

Started a tunnel for Logan here...he was a bit hesitant to climb in...

The tunnels were the best. And the forts. Elle has enjoyed snow angels so far this year. And when she leaves too much of a butt print, a "butt angel." LOL!

Can't wait to see you guys on Thursday! This morning at ECFE - they had a big tub filled with snow. I thought this was SUCH a good idea. Jack loved playing with it, and this way when it's -45 degrees outside, we can still play with snow.

This all looks like so much fun! I am glad that you are able to let him get out and explore, the tunnel was a great idea!
