A Snowy First!

Okay, now of course it has snowed PLENTY of times here since Bennett has been born but I've just never taken him out in it-can you believe that!? I just figured he'd be cold, he doesn't have the real gear you need and he's usually napping when we go out.

But I felt it was time. Time for this little boy to experience his first snow. To experience tiny snow flakes on his lashes, to try and taste it, to see what all the fuss was about!

So he tried to touch it.
He tried to manipulate it.
(kinda hard with big mittens!)

He went on the sled with his big sister for the first time.

And then he went all by himself!

He watched his sisters throw snow balls with his daddy.

And then tried to throw some himself.

I think he really liked it...until it got too cold and that was enough for him.


I think it's been snowing here since Wednesday....seriously.

Mike was in sunny Florida this past week for work and came home to a ton of snow, so to that I say....

We saved Bennett's first snow day just for you;)
