Snow Day

The snow finally made its way to Kentucky. About 10 inches of it in fact. I really don't mind it at the moment. There's just something about snow that I really appreciate, maybe the stark beauty of it. Even the memories that it evokes, of sledding, snow angels and hot chocolate to warm up. On this side of the state we do not see too many large snowfalls regularly, so everything tends to shut down which is exactly what happened yesterday. We enjoyed a fun snow day at home. 

Mason has not experienced snow when he would actually remember it, so he was excited to check it out. To his surprise and delight, he discovered that  snow was on both sides of our home. He, of course, had to check it out for himself.

The coupe just wasn't made for this type of weather.

The snow made for some tough walking for those toddler legs of his, but he kept on trucking through it. We did not stay out too long, but it was enough for him to have fun (and wear him out for a long nap).

Of course, a snow day has to include homemade snow cream! Mason helped me mix the ingredients and thoroughly enjoyed tasting it.

It was a good day.

And the girls are extremely disgusted with the snow. Running out of the coop only to discover that it was cold and as tall as them, one of my hens could not get back in fast enough, so they have not budged from the coop.
