Snowbunnies

By Mom | January 1, 2010

We took Grace up to the mountains to visit Ava and her family in their cabin recently.  This was Grace and Cole’s first visit to the snow.

Before hand, Grace had to test drive her snow cap and mittens to make sure they still fit.

As soon as we got there we ate a quick lunch and got the kids dressed for some snow sledding fun. After what seemed like an hour of getting dressed we finally ventured out into the snow. Thanks to Ava’s Daddy, the girls had a good hand to hold while walking on the slippery ground.

Dan was also the designated sledder with the kids.

If they weren’t sledding they were making snowmen!

Afterwards, we headed to the park nearby. And guess who was the designated swing pusher? Thanks again Dan!

Apparently, Nicole is also the bus driver too.

The next day some more visitors came by for snow fun. It was Nicole’s nephews Briar, Eli, and Sammy. That made 7 kids! Here we are trying to get them all in a shot.

Who is that coming with his ninja turtle gloves? Daddy! He made it to the mountains the night before and took some time away from work to sled with the kids.

Grace even went on the sled by herself! What a champ!

More park fun. But this time we stumbled upon a deserted snowball maker. Get to work kids! We need some snowballs.

We had some pooped out kids that night. They were ready for storytime and bed without fuss.
