There’s a blizzard in Texas! Well, not really, but we got a lot of snow on Friday. And by “a lot” I mean a few inches.
I’m sure anyone in the Boston area would like to punch me in the face for making a big deal about a few inches, huh? I wouldn’t blame you if you did. Plus, I’d at least have enough snow to make a fresh ice pack to put on my face to reduce the swelling. 🙂
This week, we’ve had 2 other mornings that started with snow but quickly melted into mush. Nothing I wanted to let Avery roam around in. But Friday’s snow was an all day event and covered the ground in a beautiful white sea of fluffy snow.
Going Mom was adamant that I take good pictures of Avery in her first snow since you never know how long it will be until it happens again around here. Technically, this wasn’t her first snow, but it was the first time she got to walk around in it and really get the feel of what it’s like.
After she had her breakfast and I had a couple cups of my cold brew coffee, it was time to “bear” the snow. You’ll get the quotes soon.
Our best cold weather outfit for Avery is a pink full-body suit that resembles a bear cub with a hood that has little ears attached. I’ve posted about it several times, and she even had a dark purple one that she outgrew last year.
Wow, time sure does fly! Wouldn’t squeeze her in that suit if we tried now!
Her new suit is a little big on her, but she seems content with wearing it.
Well, sometimes. But since she would be out in the cold walking around in snow, she needed more than the hood that just falls off of her. She need an upgrade to a beanie, a giraffe beanie!
Ummm, look up for the camera, Avery. Please?
Much better. Now the title of the post should make more sense. Bear + Giraffe = Bearaffe and she (it?) is ready to take on the snow!
She started off with confidence despite the snow having her surrounded. After analyzing the situation, she felt it would be best to move around to better assess the situation.
Okay, gaining more confidence. Can’t stop moving, must keep the snow guessing!
Yep, feeling really good at this point. I’m just “walking all over” the snow; literally and figuratively.
Oh, hi there, dad, I thought you told me to be careful. What’s there to be careful about? I’m already a snow pro!
See? Just smilin’ in the snow. I can do anything and go anywhere!
Like all the way in our neighbors’ yard. Look at me just rompin’ and stompin’ like a real bear…
OOoomph! Ummm, just wanted to see what this stuff tastes like, I meant to do that.
I’m good, the snow isn’t, so I won’t do that again. Time for more exploring! So pretty and fun to walk all ov….
Gahhhh, this is annoying…..and cold! Kinda starting to not like this stupid snow.
Okay, I’m up by my face still feels cold. What gives?
Get it off, get it off!
Thanks, Dad. How about next time you NOT take pictures and just help me right away?!
I’m feeling lost. Where am I? Is that silver thing another person?
That’s it, I’m done. I’m going to get up and walk my bear-self back inside. Go ahead, just keep taking pictures and laugh.
My face is so cold, but also burns. What does that mean?
Please, just stop with the pics and take me inside!!
Why did you take me inside? I was just “warming up” out there! Take me ba…
What the crap are you giving me my kettlebell for? This isn’t what I wanted! Just listen to …..oh? Music? I should dance?
Snow, what snow? I love kettlebell dancing!
And that’s pretty much how our snow experience went down on Friday. Avery loves being outdoors, so anytime I take her in, she starts crying, but it didn’t take her long to turn happy and playful again. I’m sure being warm and dry helped!
Do you remember your kids’ first snow or have they not experienced it yet?
If they have, how do they like it? You? I’m not a fan of the cold at all, but if it snows, I enjoy it while it lasts.
