Monkey girl had been really eager to see snow for the first time so she was ecstatic when she looked out the window. We quickly got dressed and headed outside. Bro Bro monkey was still sleeping and I'm not sure how much of a memorable occasion it would be for him at 16 months old, so we let him continue to sleep. We knew we had to take advantage of the snow quickly before it started to melt. Monkey girl got to the driveway and laid down to make a snow angel. A lot of our neighbors were outside as well so it was a fun occasion. Monkey girl noticed our neighbors two little girls were out as well and proceeded to start a snowball fight. However, the snow we got was not the sticky kind so it just fell straight out of her mittens, but she had fun pretending to throw snowballs at everyone.
The one thing I didn't think of though was that the she was spending a lot of time playing with the snow in her hands and it was soaking through the knit mittens. Her hands were so cold and red when we came inside and they were hurting her as they warmed up. I'm going to have to find some snow mittens for both of them for any future snow adventures. However, it was still a lot of fun for everyone and the snow was all gone around noon. Next winter we're hoping to visit family in more snow prone areas. As for now, we're ready for 70-80 degree weather again!
