We have been to play in the snow

We have lived in Tasmania for 6 years now and each winter we promise to take the boys to the snow but life gets in the way and we don't get there, or we do go but only to find no snow. My boys have never seen real snow close up or even touched it so you can imagine their excitement as we saw lots of snow on the side of the road as we were driving up the mountain, I thought Jacob was going to jump out of the car.


The boys had such fun but didn't really realise how cold the snow would be.



Our youngest son made his very first snowman, isn't he cute!!!!





Its the last day of my holidays today, I have had such a nice break, I got lots of sewing done, went for a long walk each day and did lots of baking.
I love being home and spending time with my family, school holidays are awesome.


Until next time... happy sewing

So pleased you've enjoyed holidays with your boys. Holidays are special times to reconnect and recharge with family and home. With my daughter away, my son and I have been doing lots together, it's been lovely :-)

Lovely to see you yesterday Leanne! Isn't the first time you experience snow with your kids so much fun, makes you feel like a kid yourself! Make the most of your last precious day!

That is exciting! It's good to play in snow. We used to have it in the winter when I grew up near Chicago, IL. We were always especially excited when we had snow on Christmas. DH & I ran into snow in Arizona on our trip to Oregon and more in the mountains. It is beautiful!

It looks like you all had a great time playing in the snow and how cute is that snowman. We lie down in the snow and move our arms up and down to make snow angels. A lovely post Leanne thanks for sharing it with us. :)
