Adventures in the snow.

I went to Walmart today.
It started snowing...which is no surprise, it's been snowing for the past three days. But I was standing at the cash register, paying for my groceries and I hear a girl say "It's snowing really hard!".
I look.
It sure is! Big fluffy snowflakes that cover the ground quickly. And the road.
Damn it.
I haven't left the house in three days and as soon as I'm 15 miles from home, the snow starts to stick to the road.
Go figure.

When I get home, I decide to take Monkey outside to see his first winter. Technically it's his second, but this time he realizes something is going on.
I bundle him up in his cute little snow outfit and his bunny ear snow hat.

I put on Cody's hunting boots and trudge outside.


 Moo wha?

I set Colt on the ground to let him explore.
He puts his hands in the snow....

...and starts bawling!
I guess the coldness of the snow really scared him and he freaked out. He was rubbing his hands everywhere to try and get the snow off. He was getting it on his face and in his eyes in the process, making it worse.
Poor guy.

So I wrap the ends of his sleeves around his hands and he's much more comfortable.
He was content just to sit and look around.

This was fun mom!
