We finally got more than 1 melting inch of snow at once.
The morning of the snow, we woke up and read SnowFlake Bentley, the wonderfully written true story of the first man to successfully photograph snowflakes. Snapping this photo, at Brian’s request, was a gazillion times simpler tan what Bentley had to go through.
Breanna didn’t even last five minutes. With 30 m.p.h. wind gusts and the temp in the teens, I don’t blame her.
Look at what happened to her brother–he turned into a SNOW MAN!
The others survived quite well, and I had to order them back inside.
The poor birds who just migrated back weren’t all that happy with the whole situation, though. Poor shivery little things. Look at ’em rock that feeder!
The boys asked to make a “winter dessert,” and constructed this awesome volcano with snow and strawberry syrup.
It made quite the yummy lunch.
Shh…don’t tell the kids I’m hoping this first “big” snow was also the last big snow of the season.
