The rumors are true... the snow is cold

Feb. 26, 2011

Dad picked us up this afternoon and we piled into his 4 runner and headed to the snow. We stopped and had lunch just passed the Dam and it was fun. The kids were running around and we were trying to keep them away from the water and put food in their tummies all at the same time. We then got back in and drove the rest of the way and reached the snow.

After we parked the car both Caleb and Hannah wanted to get out of the car and see the snow... so we let them. Big Mistake! Hannah went straight for the snow with her bare hands and in sweat pants. She got so cold that she cried and cried and had to be thawed out in the car with the heater on. After she warmed up she didn't want anything to do with the snow any more. Well I knew if I could just get her dressed in the right clothes with gloves she would see just how fun the snow could be. After lots of crying she finally realized that the snow bibs and gloves kept her warm and dry. And After that she wanted to go to every spot that hadn't been tromped on by her snow boots. Dad and Cory made a sled run and we each took turns going down. Caleb rolled around in the snow, jumped in the snow and ate the snow. He was in heaven. When it was time to go Hannah cried again. Only this time it was because she didn't want to leave. With in 10 minutes both were fast asleep. We carried them both upstairs when we got home. Caleb slept for 2 more hours and woke up in time for dinner and then back to sleep but Hannah slept from 4:30pm until 6:30 the next morning! Yea for Snow!
