snow?!?!?!.

i know this may not sound like big news to you utahns or coloradons or new yorkns, but today... in the desert.... it snowed,.... it snowed big time.


we were all so giddy and it took every ounce of my strength to not go get the kids out of school. i was heartsick sending them off to school knowing that would be stuck in a classroom with no windows, and couldn't watch the beautiful snowfall. chad reassured me that the snow would still be here when school was over. ( mr. husband, thank you for being the sensible half)



kate and i played in the snow and had a blast tasting it on our tongues, but we were still anxiously awaiting the "big kids."
chad ran to the store and got some sleds so we were ready. they got home, we put on our random hand-me-down selection of snow clothes and we were off to the park across the street to play our hearts out in the snow.

we sledded, ate snow, rolled around....


had snowball fights...



and made a snowman (a really tall snowman).

and levi... snug in his stroller the whole time... and not that happy about it.


i must say, for someone who prefers warm weather and really disliked my 2 years of living in the snow... this was seriously awesome. and a day to remember.

Why does the snow look so much more fun in Vegas than here in Utah? :)
Glad you had such a great time!

Snow in Vegas? I knew global warming was a hoax!

I'm jealous. We didn't get snow in Logandale. It looks like so much fun.

Wow, that's a lot of snow! Looks like your kids had a blast! I remember it snowed one time when we lived there. It was quite amazing!
