snow day

DSC05401We got enough snow with a big enough threat that school was closed Friday. Rob was lucky enough to be able to work from home so we did a little tag team child care alternating working and playing with Simon. Despite the cold and wind – oh the wind – we ventured out for a little snow fun. Rob was looking forward to trying out his new snow pants and boots and I just wanted more than 200 steps for the day. Simon wanted nothing to do with snow last year. This year he likes it a bit more.

There was some climbing and sliding on the big slide. Then we realized just how slippery the rubber around the jungle gym was and I was sent to sit and film.

    WHOA! That is a LOT of snow for the city!!! We have been sticking to the front lawn too… is just exhausting to get past the HUGE piles of snow and ice there. That’s it… I’m jamming them in their snowsuits after nap!
