Last week we experienced quite a lot of snow fall but we watched it from our windows.
Every time it snowed I found myself wishing it would settle. It just proves how much having children changes you because before children just the mention of the word snow would fill me with dread. Snow meant travel chaos and a complete nightmare!
Now I found myself wanting to wake up to a winter wonderland so that we could experience snow as a family and hopefully build a snowman!
I was disappointed, but on Saturday afternoon BIG flakes of snow started to fall. So I quickly wrapped me and Ethan up warm and heeded out into the garden so that Ethan could at least experience snowfall.
He screamed with excitement when we went into the garden and just run backwards and forwards in the snow. It was very icy so I was on full alert trying to stop him from falling over whilst taking photos at the same time.
I told Ethan to catch the snow and he batted it whilst roaring! So I showed him how to hold out his hand to catch it.
We only had ten minutes in the snow as the snowfall soon stopped but Ethan loved every minute.

We were out when it snowed here for a minute or so and thats all that we had. The snow is turned into water when it touch the ground. We wish we can get more. I also want my son to experience it like Ethan =) #countrykids
I was really hoping we would get more but I think we have had all the snow for this year now :0(
It’s so funny that we do now look at snow in a different light, you’re right!! In the olden days I would’ve hated the idea of trudging thru snow now I’m disappointed in the weather forecaster suggests it may snow overnight and in the morning there is none!
Glad you managed to get out and experience a small flurry of snow – like you we’ve been teased by seeing the snow flakes fall but its never been enough to turn our back garden into a winter wonderland!
Lovely happy photos
Snow never used to be my friend but now without needed to commute into work it can snow all it likes ;0) x
It’s lovely to see your kids faces as they experience snowfall for the first time isn’t it? It’s such a shame that it didn’t settle so you could build a snowman with Ethan, I’m sure you’ll get the opportunity one day! Thanks for linking up with Country Kids.
I can’t wait until we can build a snowman together. I’m happy for it to snow next year then Little E can also play x
I am exactly the same as you and have been hoping for snow – purely for Monkey’s sake as I knew how much he would enjoy it! So we have been the same, making the most of the slightest hint of snow by getting out in it! xx
You have to, you never know when we will get snow here ;0) x
All children love snow don’t they? He looks so excited and happy! x
He loved it, he really was excited to be running in the snow x
How precious. Those first moments are lovely aren’t they x
They are x
