During the week and a half we were there, we got about two feet of snow. The girls were ECSTATIC. And I'll be honest, I was pretty happy about it, too. I love snow. It just makes everything so pretty! (At least, until it's driven on and turns into a gray, slushy mess...)
|See? Pretty, right?|
In any case, we were expecting the snow and brought all of the girls' cold weather gear with us, so they got lots of good, snowy playtime, including some sledding!
Check 'em out:
True to her nature, Amelia was a little hesitant about this whole sledding thing at first, but she warmed up to it quickly and even went down a few times all by herself! (Truth be told, I think she realized that she went more slowly without the added weight of an adult and felt more in control.)
Ramona, of course, expressed no such hesitation about hopping on a sled. In fact, she actually wanted to sled from the top of the hill, like the big kids. Keep in mind that sledding from the top involves bailing out at the bottom, so that you don't sled right across the (fairly busy) road. Um, NO. Sorry, Ramona. (Sledding from the top makes ME nervous!)
|Come on, Pa, let's go from the top!|
|My little snow baby!|
An aside: People have ALWAYS commented on how much I look like my mom. Sometimes I don't see it... In the above pictures, though? Definitely see it!

In other news, Amelia's heart surgery is scheduled for ONE WEEK from today. Hoping for a quick recovery and some snow here in Boston when she's ready to get back outside!
