Fun in the snow

It snowed here last night and this morning. It wasn't as much as they expected — some places in Oklahoma about an hour or so northwest of us had 24 or more inches — but we ended up with a few inches, which was pretty wild since we are a week into spring. The strong north wind made for some pretty deep drifts, too.

This was Jake's first real snow since he's been home, and we wondered how he would react. He seemed to like looking at it from inside, so today we had to head out into the white stuff and have some fun. We threw snowballs, built a snowman, made snow angels and had a good time. After we had been out for a while I asked him if he wanted to go in and he shook his head vigorously and said "No" quite vociferously. He likes the snow.

It was fun. It's been a fun couple of days for Jake. He spent Friday with my parents, as he does every Friday while we are at work. Papa had to leave to make his school bus run, and when he came back he drove the bus home. It's not a huge bus, it's a mini bus, but when Jake saw it through the door he got pretty excited. He wanted so much to see it so we put on our coats and Papa took us for a drive around the block. Jake really had a good time, he had a big smile on his face the whole time. Like I said, it's been a fun couple of days for him.

So, here are the snow pics:

I love the snow pictures! We don't get much of that around here. I did grow up in it though and can't wait to take Lily to see snow someday.
