Do You Want to Build a Snowman?

Posted in Family, and Outdoor Adventures

Cold weather. Snow covered mountains. More snow. It’s time to go explore the winter wonderland. Build a snowman? We’ll have to wait to see what the snow is like once we reach our destination. A picnic lunch has been packed. The dogs are settled in. It’s time to head on our way. Switchback roads. Snow everywhere. It’s going to be a fun day of exploration and hiking in the snow.

While we don’t normally live in areas that get much (if any) snow, we all still enjoy it. We love milder winter weather, but we do miss the fun that comes with snow now and again.

He realized that he could very easily see the animals and birds thanks to the newly fallen snow. Yes, he chased Wiley around and played,…

We were all rather excited even if it did create a few issues as we weren’t prepared for that much wet snow and single digit temps. While both D and I grew up with snowy, cold winters, Munchkin hasn’t had a lot of snow to play in over the years. Our duty stations have been in places that get little to no snow each winter. Of course, the previous 5 winters have found…
