Well the "snowquester", like most snowstorms in the DC area, turned out to be a big letdown. Yes we did get a few inches where I lived but many people just saw rain. The few inches we got were the wet, heavy, notveryfuntoplayin type of snow but I was determined to get Hunter in his new, big boy snowsuit and go out to
Fortunately I was able to telework so I got to spend the day with my little dude in between answering work emails. We started the day with some snuggles in bed.
Followed by Hunter checking out all the white stuff outside.
We had a couple inches early on in the day.
Hunter is finally starting to enjoy cartoons and will actually sit and watch them for probably 10 minutes tops but I'll take those 10 minutes of snuggling when I can.
Finally, after Kristian got home from work and Hunter woke up from his nap, I bundled him up in the snowsuit my inlaws bought him for Christmas. Fortunately it's 24 month size so hopefully it will still fit next winter. I think it took longer to get him dressed than we actually stayed outside for.
I don't know if it was the bulkiness of the snowsuit or the wet snow itself but Hunter did NOT want to stand or walk or even sit in the snow.
But I managed a few cute photos. Pardon the pacifier, he screamed bloody murder when I tried to take it away. I guess he needed a safety blanket so to speak.
Yep that's what happened when I took the paci away.
Daddy snuck in for a quite photo as well.
We gave Hunter a little snow to eat and after the initial confusion over the cold he wanted more.
Unlike Hunter, Moxie loved running around in the snow. She had a blast but I wasn't fond of the wet dog smell that lingered on her the rest of the day.
When we came back inside I had to get some more work done so my boys took a nap in the basement next to the fire for an HOUR! I was actually pretty jealous. Hunter never naps like this with me, only daddy.
Despite not getting as much snow as they predicted we made the best of the snow day at home together which I had been wishing for all winter.
