The best part of a snow day is waiting for the kids to wake up and see the snow and then find out they don't have to go to school. Seriously, the excitement compares with Disneyland.
The boys waited for Em to get up and out they went.
The wind was really blowing the snow in their faces.
Then, they move to the front yard.
David decided not to drive to work, but he would work from home. So, we got to take the kids sledding. We just went to the park close to our house. It's not a huge hill, but it's still fun. We were some of the first people there and we had to try to get a run going.
Right before we left, I grabbed Noah's little pool inner tube. The last time we went sledding, the people going the fastest were on pool inner tubes. Emily said she didn't want her big one, so I just grabbed Noah's little one. And boy, did that thing take off. Way better than any snow sled we've ever used. Here's Ben trying it out.
Emily may have been a little large, but it's still fun.
Then, we sent David back to get her big inner tube.
And Em's friend, Tabitha, showed up.
The orange tube was a big hit.
Even I tried it out.
I went super far! Weight will do that! :)
Ben wanted to have a snowball fight.
David tried out the big tube too. We are a bunch of kids.
Then, Em and Tabitha went down together on her tube, which her Dad went home to get after seeing our tube success.
This is way more fun than math class!
The great thing about snow here, is it's gone in a day. This was already our front yard and you saw the pics above that were probably 3 hours before.
Have I mentioned that I love our new house color? :)
We just finished dinner and the kids and David are all out having a snowball fight.
What a wonderful day!
