When I was kid one of the best surprises was when my mother would wake me up in the morning and tell me it was a snow day. I would look out my window and see 3-5 inches or so and remember thinking it was the best day ever.
Today, I got to surprise my children with snow outside. It was already a canceled day of school and our 4th day off, but my little ones didn't know it was supposed to snow. And I had no idea it was going to snow 6+ inches.
The snow was a powdery mix and perfect for sledding. This was our first sledding adventure and we had a perfect time.
I was kind of dreading bundling up the kids and getting out in the cold. I mean it is a lot of work. But I had just as much fun as the kids and I did get to wear my snow boots! I am ready to go again tomorrow.
