Snow day!

So, we had our first big snow fall here in nyc. I will be honest when I say I have been eagerly awaiting this day for weeks, if not months! Our little one experienced snow when he was younger but didn’t really remember it. So, we knew once we had our first snow day we were going to make it count! I think my husband and I had more fun than him. Ha! We slipped on his winter gear, grabbed the snowball maker and headed out. My husband loaded up the bucket with snowballs and the family’s first snowball fight commenced. It was a blast! Well… until the snow melted and froze through his knit gloves… then he was over it. HA!
