This weekend brought another round of snow and temperatures that allowed us to actually play outside in it. Our winter has been rather strange with temps as high as 60 and others as low as single digits. Oh Missouri, you never cease to amaze me.
The snow began to fall mid-day Saturday and didn't stop until it was 6" deep. My husband, the manly man who grew up in Idaho, owns a 4WD truck, and refuses to be slowed down by snow, was anxious to get out and go sledding Sunday morning. While the tot and I were doing normal people things (like eating breakfast and snuggling), he was outside shoveling the driveway for the third time that week. Eventually, I talked myself into getting out from under my warm blanket on the couch and proceeded to dress the tot and myself in layer after layer until we could hardly move. Next winter, we will definitely be investing in snow gear for the tot since we were completely unprepared this year! Regardless of our attire, we were off to meet our friends at Stephens Park so that our little ones could have their first sledding experience together!

After an hour in the cold, we were ready for warmth and food so we packed up our tubes, stripped off some layers, and headed to Hooters for lunch (classy, I know). Getting out of the house and enjoying some fresh air with our friends was exactly what we needed. And while we are more than ready for spring at this point, this weekend was a perfect way to spend what I hope was our last snow-covered, wintery day.
