Last week, we went on walks outside with just a jacket or a long sleeve shirt. We played at the park, fed the ducks, rode bikes, etc. We knew that SPRING was here. Oh, how we were WRONG!!! Monday, we woke up to snow - not just a sprinkle, but inches! Throughout the day, it snowed and snowed more. By the end of the day, we had over a foot of snow on our front lawn. I actually was happy because we could take Cadence and Cooper sledding one last time.
We loaded up the kids and sleds. Chris and Cadence bought a 5 1/2 foot toboggan so our whole family could fit on it at once. Cadence was so excited to use it. (We've been reading a book called "The Wild Toboggan Ride and Cadence loves it.")
As we drove to the park on Cliffside, the snow got deeper and deeper - all fresh powder! There was so much powder that only established/packed sledding trails could be used. Cadence didn't love sledding this time as much as last. She was more interested in playing on the playground. Cooper fell asleep in the 4 minutes that it took us to drive up the hill.
Still, it was fun and deep! We thought about making a snowman, but the powder wouldn't pack! In the pictures with Cadence, she is standing in the snow - not kneeling or sitting. Wading/walking through the snow was very difficult for her and she would get frustrated because she couldn't move very well:(
I'm quite sure this snow will melt quickly and spring will be back soon! We are excited to resume our spring activities!!!
