Sunday afternoon was perfect for playing in the snow. We had several inches of snow, it was sunny and the temperature was just above freezing. So we were able to play outside for a while without getting too cold. Sleds, snow shovels, little shovels and buckets were all used to enjoy the snow. There were snow angels and lots of snow was thrown in the air. Ruslan spent the majority of the time pulling a sled around the yard and adding snow to it with his shovel. And then I looked over to see this:
He was licking the snow off the end of the shovel.
Then he realized his glove had a ready supply of snow to eat.
Eventually he was shoveling snow just to eat it.
Earlier that day I took the boys shopping and at one point I turned around to see Ruslan with his mouth on the shopping cart; the white snow in our front yard can’t be any worse than that.
Sledding and running and enjoying the snow and then we came in for hot cocoa and marshmallows.
