This past Sunday Mother Nature dropped 9 inches of snow here. Our Little Scout hasn’t really been able to experience snow yet. When she was a few months old, we bundled her up and took her out to touch the snow. She LOVED it. Other than that, she hasn’t been able to truly experience the snow until this past Sunday.
We bundled her up which I swear took about 20 mins and two people to get the job done. Have you ever bundled up a toddler? It’s a real fun experience if you haven’t had the pleasure yet.
Anyways, as soon as we put her down she plopped right into the snow and began playing. She was smiling and patting away. I think it was hit for the first 5 mins until her mitten fell off and the coldness sunk in.
I can’t wait to take her out to explore more of winter. She truly loves the outdoors and playing outside.
Be watching for more on our outdoor explorations as we learn about snow and winter.
