A view down our back alley
Needless to say I went to bed a happy mama.This morning I took a couple more shots in the morning light before any ice had melted.
After Jude went down for his morning nap Lily and I went to check the snow conditions. It was a perfect packing snow. We never had a good packing snow last winter. As far as I'm concerned there is only a couple of things to do with a two, almost three year old when the snow is just right like that. I wasn't up for making a snow fort so instead we made Lily's first snowman.
She was very insistent that it had to have arms, and a hat, and a scarf, and a carrot nose. What can I say, the girl knows her snowmen.
After lunch it was in the 40's so I decided to take them for a walk in the park. I pulled them for a hour in their sled as they ran their hands along the ground scooping up snow and eating it.
It was peaceful and quiet with only the crunch of the snow under my feet and the sliding sound of the sled on the snow. Occasionally we could hear a chickadee singing.
They did not want to go home. But perhaps tomorrow we can do it again...
