April (?snow?) Showers

As a child I remember that one of my wishes after the birthday present had hit my head was that there would be such a thing as WARM SNOW. Then I could sculpt and play without the frostbitten fingertips. (The other wish was always a trampoline, which my parents promptly bought soon after I was away at college! No hard feelings though. My kids are now the thrilled recipients).

So today...it wasn't actually warm snow, but it was warm outside, and the ground was COVERED in snow! We had to build our snow family quickly before it collapsed due to the heaviness and heat.

Here we are complete with a crawling little Nathan.



Mom and Dad were headless ten minutes later!

That is a lot of snowmen, that takes a lot of work. Nice work family!!! I loved all the snow this morning, so beautiful and amazing!! Too bad it'll all be gone by tomorrow.

That is the cutest snow family! Did the kids do it themselves or did you go out and help?

When I saw the snow I was not happy. I am not a fan of snow any time of the year I would rather just have rain. I was glad the next day when it was gone. Daniel best friend got Married that day so in years to come he can tell his kids about the day they got married and how it snowed and then by the time the day was over most of it was gone

Your kids looked like they had fun makeing the family

I've always wished for warm snow too! I'm glad you took advantage of it.
