Last week, we had our first (and probably only) sprinkling of snow. Layla, of course, insisted on going out to play as soon as she looked out the window. I was hesitant, as it literally was a sprinkling... and I knew it would mostly mean rolling around in the cold mud and tracking it all back into the apartment after about 20 minutes. However, I couldn't resist the look in her eyes (she's really good at that puppy eyes thing) and I highly doubt she'll get another opportunity to play in the snow this winter. I bundled the girls and myself up, and out we went!
|Tesla wasn't quite sure what to make of the stuff- so she mostly ended up just eating it.|
|She looks like a fat pink caterpillar.|
|She kept just sticking her tongue out and feeling the cool air, I couldn't stop laughing at her!|
|Layla thought the icicles hanging off the cars were so neat- she even insisted on keeping this one "for Daddy." It's still in our freezer!|
|Mommy and the snow bunnies!|
|Layla saw Tesla eating the snow and figured she should try it too, just in case it was really tasty.|
I'm glad I gave in and took them out... even though it was short-lived, they had so much fun and coming inside to hot cocoa and a warm bath just made it even better. Sometimes it's difficult for me to get over my anxieties and just GET OUT of the house, but I'm usually glad when I do. This was definitely one of those times!
