Wintry Weather- It's Snow Much Work Fun!

This past week we had our first REAL snow of the season. We got between six and eight inches during the day. In order to keep from being buried, I spent a large portion of the day outside shoveling our enormous driveway. The snow seemed like work to me... until I watched how enthusiastic Jonah was.

At first he decided to help me with the shoveling. What a hard worker!
The snow is so deep, Mommy!

After "working" with me for a while, Jonah decided that it was time to take a break and have some fun. I decided to take a break too... camera in hand. Jonah had a fantastic time in the snow. He tromped around in it, he sat down in it, and he carried it around.

It's not too heavy if you carry it this way, Mommy.

He helped me remember what it was like to be a kid and LOVE to play in the snow. Even when you are cold and soaking wet, it's still fun. Snow is really amazing stuff, you know!

Look how light and fluffy it is, Mommy!

It must have seemed like the world turned into an enormous sandbox for Jonah to play in! Unfortunately, snow doesn't work quite the same as sand.

Why won't the snow come out of the bucket?

All too soon I had to get back to work. Good thing Jonah got out the big equipment to lend a hand!

  1. Sand toys make great snow toys, don't they! Can you send some snow my way? I didn't get as much as you did.

  17. My 5 year old and I were shoveling together yesterday for an hour. We have 2 feet of snow and ice to shovel through. It was awful, but he was AWESOME! I wanted to take pics to share with the bloggy world, but he was being modest and didn't' want it shared with everyone.
