After [finally] snowing over the weekend and nearly all of today there's now a few inches coating everything outside and I'm practically giddy with excitement. The last couple of years our winters have been so strange and unpredictable, so despite two sick babies I made a point to get outside and enjoy it. The groomed trails up at the Government Peaks Recreation Area would have been ideal but good naps were a must today today so we stayed close to home instead. Luckily there's plenty to explore around here especially at Riggs' pace.
It was Raina's first time in the sled and in real snow and she seemed to really enjoy it...as usual, she was all smiles. Riggs was up for skiing but just "not too fast, mama". I put my skis on too which seemed to make me even more eager to hit the actual trails as soon as possible. I'm hoping to go without the kids once a week this winter, but once every two weeks is probably more realistic. Luckily our ski club has double chariots available for use, which is so much better than shelling out the $800 myself.
We are very thankful for this little bit of snow, but are also anxious for more. It's December now, so please, let it snow! Christmas will be here before we know it and we need at least another six inches of snow to make it really feel right or this time of year.
