Snow Much Fun!

Sunday 17th January was definitely my favourite day of 2016 so far!

We woke up to a blanket of snow covering the ground. It had started the previous evening and I’d almost been tempted to wake Mini R from his slumber to show him….before realising what a completely ridiculous and crazy idea that was! Wake a sleeping child?! Don’t be flipping stupid!

So when he did wake the next morning I stood him on the window sill and said “This is snow!” to which he replied “‘now”…sounding a lot like “No” which made things all the more amusing, like he didn’t believe me or was telling me it wasn’t snow.

We had plans to go to my auntie and uncle’s as my cousin and his wife were up from London visiting so Operation ‘Get the Roversi’s ready for a Snow Day’ commenced and we bundled up and dug out the hats, scarves, gloves and extra layers. Just before we set off we received a call from my Auntie P (who is like a second Mum to me) “Get your wellies on, I’ve got the sledge out!” – it was clear she was very excited about being able to share in Mini R’s first Snow Day.

The morning was filled with walking in the snow, sledging down the BMX hills (unsuccessfully in some cases!) and building a snow woman named Susie. Quality time with lovely people and Mini R loved his first snow experience…most of the time! He wasn’t keen on sledging unless he was sat with someone on it. He did not like being pulled along on it and he enjoyed patting down the snow to make the snowman saying “Pat, pat, pat” which was awfully cute!

Susie the snow woman became a lot bigger than ever intended due to the males of the family (my uncle, cousin and husband) getting overly excited and all rolling a massive snow ball each! My cousin’s wife and I took charge of shaping her and Auntie P loaded the sledge with snow to shape and mould. It was very much a team effort…if fact we lost Vic (of Vic and Bob, the Jack Russell’s) in the woods for a moment because we were all so focused on our building. Comedy moment when we started shouting him and so did Mini R…in gobbley gook!

Did you get any snow? Did you go out and play? I’d love to hear your snow stories! Contact me on Facebook, Twitter or comment below!

    That looks lovely! We haven’t had any snow unfortunately-just a load of really cold snow-less weather. Can’t wait for Piglet’s first snow day. #FartGlitter

    Oh your photos are so lovely! How exciting to get out & play in the snow as a family. I live in Ireland & we have no snow. I’m from NY where there was lots of snow so I really miss it! I’d love for my kids to get to play in the snow & build a snowman someday. #abitofeverything x
