After the snow

So this is how it went after coming in from our morning out in the snow.
Me: "It's time to take a nap kiddos!" (after lunch with hot cocoa, of course)
Kids: "But we want to go play in the snow!"
Me: "We'll maybe play some more after your nap, ok?"
Kids: "Ok... "
and nap they did!

When they woke up... there was no snow... that's how fast it came and went.

Since the snow was gone from our sand, they ended up just playing in that... which made a mess, but they had fun. Being cold and wet, it almost reminded me of moonsand.
Life was pretty much back to normal without the snow.

It was fun and the kids had a good time. I enjoyed our day off from school as much as they did, I think. I love times like this!
