Snow Much Fun

Yes it is summer here in SC - this post is 5 months late! I thought I posted about the snow we got that extended the kids' winter break, but it was sitting in my drafts all this time.

So, yeah, snow. It's a rare event here in the Lowcountry, so we had to take advantage and have all the fun we could while it lasted. The day before the snow hit the forecast for our area was less than an inch so I figured all we might see were some flurries.

Turns out those flurries accumulated to 6-8 inches in some areas! So we got out for snowball fighting, snow angels making, snow tasting, attempted sledding, snowman building, and walking around our block.

The only 'sled' we had - a boogie board!

How thick the ice was on our driveway

My Lowcountry snowman's nose, mouth, and buttons were made with seashells. The eyes were actually made with some kind of coal Lucas had from some school project!

 Pure joy on his face at finally getting to experience snow (he doesn't really remember the snow when we lived in Maryland since he was only 1 and 2 years old.

The pond froze over

The entrance to the drainage pipe was the only place that wasn't frozen

Smashing snowballs on the frozen pond

Almost 5.5 inches in our driveway

Taking a walk around our neighborhood to see everything covered in white - it'll probably be another 10 years before this happens again!

That is the best snowman I have seen in ages! Excellently done.

I am kind of jealous that you were able to take such joy from this, because snow is rare for you - here in NJ we got slammed this winter! It's more of a hindrance for us. I wish I could enjoy it more instead of stressing over it.

Glad you all had such a good time though! Seeing your smiles made ME smile!
