A Snow Day - Finally...

(Disclaimer - yeah yeah, I get I'm way behind...better late than never right?) 

You know the saying "boy if I had a nickle for every time I heard xyz..." well boy if I had a nickle for every time I heard Adam ask "When is it going to snowwwwwwwwww?!" this winter - well, I'd likely have enough nickles to just buy a darn snow making machine to appease him! 

So yeah, it was a warm winter - hence this post about the great weather we'd been enjoying ( - and it did seem like we were never going to get a single snow day - that is until March when the snow decided to make an appearance. Naturally the weather people had us all a twitter with snowfall amounts predicted to be near a foot - but then that quickly got changed to possibly only a few inches. Needless to say Adam's excitement level was all over the place - and he was sure to have his pajamas on inside out before bed. 

We did wake up to enough white stuff on the ground and roads to cancel school for the day and the kids had a ball! There were early morning snuggles in bed and pancakes for breakfast. The next door neighbors were over nearly all day and forts were built, sledding ramps were paved, and snow balls fights (and snowball snacks!) were enjoyed. While I had been enjoying that spring time weather and the trees that had started to bloom - I will admit it was fun to get that snow day in and to watch the kids have such a great time together. 

Bonus! Harper got to really enjoy his first snow experience (we was a bit too young to remember anything from the blizzard last year). Luckily we had all the gear he needed leftover from Adam including a great sled that has a strap in it. He was loving life out there in the snow and with his friends as well. 

The kids might not have gotten 10+ days off like they did last year, but I'd say they'd consider this one snow day to be good enough.
