Yesterday was the first day of Spring. Today, we woke up to 4 inches of snow & it continued to snow for several hours! What a surprise!
The only bummer was that Kenton & I were already on Spring Break, so we didn't get a Snow Day from work this time. But on the bright side, we're already on Spring Break! ;)
Finn was supposed to go to school this morning & was SO excited when he learned that it actually snowed enough to cancel school! That is so rare here!
Our tall tree/shrub was bending under the weight of snow! It's top branches were touching the ground. :\ We helped knock some of the snow off, but we'll see if it fully recovers.
We played in the morning & took a break, then went back out for a walk. The snow was super slushy by the afternoon & it was a very hard walk. We felt like we were doing a mini Biggest Loser challenge! :P
We walked about 3/4 of a mile to a hill & the snow was still in great shape for sledding! :P My sweet Cedar-Lion was a little nervous to sled, at first.
Kenton & Finn took lots of turns!
I have so many photos with great expressions from these two...but especially from Kenton! :P
Sticking close to Mama.
Cedar didn't need a sled to have fun on the hill!
Finley on his own!
Kenton rolling down the hill...on purpose. :P
Might be getting a little old for that kind of play! ;)
The big kid & me.
Mama & Cedar took a turn about halfway down the hill, to make sure Cedar wouldn't get too scared. He loved it!
Finn & Cedar together, just before toppling over & nearly face-planting in the snow. Cedar was laughing the whole time.
Dad & Cedar
I know I'm posting a lot of pictures, but this series is so funny! I set my camera to take rapid shots & got the best facial expressions from Kenton!
We traded sleds with another family that was sledding nearby.
Kenton noticed a bump coming up & was concerned that he was going to pop their blow-up pool toy!
I suppose he was worried, but he just looks disgusted! :)
Almost to the bump!
Oh, Man! They caught some air!
Landing was a little rough...
But they were all smiles in the end. No worries! :P
Cedar got one last ride up the hill & thought that was the most fun!
By the time we made it back home, both boys were in tears with super cold toes & fingers. We gave them a warm bath, which only brought more tears as their extremities thawed out. :P But once that feeling subsided, they were all better & ready to enjoy round 2 of hot cocoa!
