We had our first snowy Portland day.
And I may have been more giddy about it than I should have been.
:::cue the snickers from folks in cold climates:::
It had snowed a bit this morning before I woke up, but it didn't stick. Brent and Em watched it fall, and it didn't last more than a few minutes.
Not long after we put Em down for her nap this afternoon, we watched as the light rain turned into light snow.
Then it stopped melting as it hit the ground and started to stick!
Just as fast as it arrived, the snow stopped, the clouds parted and the sun burst through. Not wanting Em to miss her first snow, we cut her nap short. She was surprisingly willing to get up from her snoring slumber (toddler snores are THE cutest, by the way) to head out to play.
When I told her we were going to see some snow, she exclaimed, "I want to throw it at your face!"
Check out our little snow bunny.
She was into it at first.
We made some mini snowballs and threw them around a bit.
We took a little stroll.
When I explained to Em that we couldn't fulfill her request for a snowman because the snow was too slushy, she decided she was over the snow and would rather head back inside.
