I know snow is probably old news by now, but I couldn't not share some of the wonderful photos we managed to capture last week. It was the littles very first taste of snow, and I'm not sure who was more excited!
Where we live, the snow had melted by the time morning arrived on Friday 13th January. Indie was so disappointed. Her dreams of making snow angels were gone as quickly as they arrived. Driving to Knole the next day though, we were surprised to see fields of white. We could have a snow day after all!
Bundled up in their puddlesuits and wellies, we parked up road-side and entered via a side gate - these are dotted around Knole, giving you access to the grounds further away from the main car park. There were families sledging and going for long walks in the snow - there was a real buzz in the air which was so lovely.
Parker was unfortunately feeling a little sorry for himself, so he wasn't quite so sure what to make of the snow. Indiana however, was in her element.
I don't think I've seen her so happy in a long time!
We did have a liiiittle bit of a parent fail while adventuring though. Parker doesn't actually have any gloves of his own - what 1 year old keeps them on? I found Indie's old mittens, but they quickly fell off and got soaking wet.
What was the parent thing to do? Give him my gloves of course! He looked ridiculous, but they kept him warm and he actually kept them on too.
The best bit of the whole morning was watching Indie play. She got to make her snow angels (just like Peppa), and there was even enough snow left to build a mini snowman.
With daddy's help she gathered the snow to make a body and a head. They then ventured off to find some twigs for arms - which she then managed to add herself! We couldn't find any eyes, so I had to get creative with some leaves.
I even popped Indie's bow on top to make a girly snowman - much to Indie's disgust though as "it's myyy bow" was shouted a few times...
We had such a wonderful morning, and I think it's actually made me enjoy snow a little bit more. Of course the day wasn't all sunshine and snowmen - the littles ended up a bit chilly and tired so there were tears...
But what day out with little ones is always perfect?
