First Snowfall!!

by Megan

We were blessed with our first snowfall in Minnesota this weekend. We had a light dusting on Friday night and a much heavier dusting on Saturday night into Sunday. And by “much heavier dusting”, I mean we got about 12-15 inches. Yay!! Here are some pictures from our winter, wonderland, snowy fun!!

Noah was getting tired from all the walking in the woods. So, he found a stump, brushed it off and sat down.

Eli was having so much fun leading us around the woods. He's a natural born leader.

Noah trudging through the snow. He was struggling. The snow was so deep and his little legs are short.

Noah loved watching all the vehicles go by, especially the trucks with plows on the front.

Eli and I had a snowball fight. Neither one of us could hit the broad side of a barn. :-)

Eli and I had fun with our snowball fight. No one was hurt, because no one could hit each other. :-)

We had a blast enjoying our first snowfall. We are going to go outside again today to enjoy the snow some more. Maybe there will be more pictures later of our day 2 fun!
