A week or so before Christmas, we took the kids up north to spend the weekend in the snow. My husband and I were raised in small town Kansas and grew up building snowmen and snow forts. This is an experience we had hoped to share with our children over the years. Getting to KS is not easy, or cheap, with two kids so we opted for Northern AZ. I am so glad we did. We arrived on Friday to just a sprinkling of snow on the ground. When we woke on Saturday, it was a full on snow day!
The kids, mostly Brayden, had a blast sledding, making snow balls, eating lots of snow and trying to build a snowman. Hannah was not super impressed with the cold and wet- she is definitely a girly girl. But the hot chocolate with marshmallows after a cold afternoon was the perfect day with our family.
