For real this time! It snowed today, and we had freezing rain too, and we got to play outside with it all. Such a treat. I love it when we get snow. I just wish we did more often.
Everything was covered with a thin layer of white powder. It was maybe an inch or two. So pretty though. They rode their bike to pull each other in the sled, behind. We talked about which one should wear the helmet… no injuries thank goodness.
After playing on the street (with no cars pretty much), we headed to the park, to The Hill.
There wasn’t much snow to slide down very fast, but the little that there was, was frozen. It worked just fine if you ask them!Downhill!
This is now. And this is…
…six months ago.
The streets are quiet. Not many cars drive by. You can hear the bus going by few blocks away, once in a while, with chains. Some people walking, mostly walking. Some doing their run on snow today, others in bike too. Some with strollers, and most kids and families, with sleds. It’s a snow day in Portland for sure. A beautiful and fun day. Feels like a party.
Snowball fights. Running, making snow balls, hiding them.
Is it from Christmas Story movie? Can you really get your tongue stuck to a pole? Maybe not today…
Watch your back!
New friends arriving. New game. New place. New snow… but less of it around!
But watch out! There are four baseball players throwing snowballs! Myself? Few quick pictures and then getting out of the way… just in case the target moves.
Then inside for some hot chocolate. (In my other new cup I received for Christmas! I love it! The perfect size, the cute design, the shape… I am lucky!)
Yup! Snow today. We are hoping for a little more for a no school day tomorrow. We wouldn’t mind having Mark another day at home. We’ll have to see.
