We had our "first" snowfall a small bit ago. While Chris cleared the drive Lakin and I did some snow exploring. A few observations from our brief stint outside.
1. Lakin can barely move in all her snow gear. For those of you not from the Northern snowy states, snow pants are MANDATORY up in this place. Like you must send them with your kids to go to school. As in, they go outside when there is snow on the ground. People will judge you if you don't pack snow boots, snow pants, hats, mittens, and a fleece lined coat. That's quite the production when outdoor playtime rolls around. I remember wearing snow pants like a total of five times. It must have been one winter in Elementary school when I was actually interested in playing outside in the snow.
3. When it came time to touch and play with the snow it was incredibly upsetting. There were tears running down her freezing little face. First snow play was an epic fail. At least I snapped some photos before she came completely unglued.
