snow pictures

For B. Because I need to explain why I turned up to a fabulously fun day- talking, eating, playing with a gorgeous little girl who was such a goer it made me miss two year old Meg, and talking some more- in snow boots.

Despite travelling an hour North to get to B's, and despite B's being an hour closer to Big Snow Country we visited on the weekend there was not even a flake of snow. So I felt kinda odd walking around in snow boots.

But this is what I'd come from:


Climbing her 'mountain'.


Having dug her snow hide- talking about Kevin the whole time. And- just like Kevin- she decided she didn't need snow pants so she's sitting in the wet March snow in her cords....


Amy the sled girl...


And the poor half-tree.

And the best thing about March snow? Better than the fact that it's wet snow so it doesn't stick to you like powder? Better than that it's supposed to be 11 degrees above zero today so we should be snow free again soon? The best thing about March snow is that those pictures were taken after 5:00pm. And it was still light!!!

There is a light at the end of the Winter tunnel.

Sorry about the snow-pants thing. You can try to tell her (and it IS the truth) that I actually wanted snow pants but it would have taken me too long to dig them out of wherever I left them after the last time I used them just two days earlier. (I still don't know)

I figured I could sacrifice my legs to frostbite just this once.

Oh Heather, you are too funny. You know what's even funnier? I noticed you were wearing snow boots, but I didn't even think twice about the fact that there was no snow around.I guess Sara has taken up that space in my brain. Thanks for coming up just to spend time with us. I had so much fun! And thanks so much for making feel somewhat normal about having a child who is always running on super drive and never stops until the batteries run out.

Oh and I LOVE your new title photo and I just noticed the coat Meg is wearing! Is that the one you bought here? It suits her perfectly! Nice job mom!
