Real Snow

Finally! It really snowed! All the weather reports I kept seeing only said snow showers....which usually means nothing. But yesterday it snowed steady all day. We got a good 4 inches of dry, powdery snow. Sad we couldn't make a snowman, but the kids stayed dry and warm even after hours of sledding.
We're still having lots of fun in it!

My dad's snowman. (This is soooo my dad) Like I said, the snow is really dry and hard to make a snowball out of. I'm impressed he did this well. He raided my kitchen for all the accessories. Mini-chocolate chips, a cheerio, some toothpics, and a little leaf for a hat. He's so proud of it. We might keep it forever in the freezer.

After dinner snow fun....all the way until bedtime!

If the kids get that excited over snow just think how juiced they will be when they hook into their first real fish. Real fish = large trout, steelhead, salmon, sturgeon, or halibut. Real fish NW style!
