Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?

I've been waiting allllll winter to take Gracyn outside to play in the snow. My South Dakota heart has been let down time and time again this season - we've gotten several weather forecasts that had called for snow but then something happens where the storm fizzles out and we get nothing. Until today!

This wasn't a major snowfall by any standard but it did warrant snow pants and a new sled. We got mayyyyybe three inches but it was snow nonetheless!

G had a horrible time, obviously.

  1. I was expecting some screams of joy out of her but that hill was maybe a little too tame for her 'daring' side! She obviously loved it tho' - smiling. Glad you got to take her out!

  2. Looks like so much fun!! It started to snow here in Dublin (Ireland) a few days ago and I got really excited to take my 8month old out in it for the first time..unfortunately the rain came down soon after and it didn't stick!!
