One of the many blessings that comes with motherhood, is the list of firsts you get to experience with your babies.
First trip to Disneyland.
First time to the snow.
We scratched that last one off our list this weekend, and boy did mother nature deliver.
The skies were blue and the ground blanketed with a thick layer of snow. The snow dusted pines and bare boned trees made for a breathtaking silhouette. We went with sleds in tow and intentions of big round snow mans, but it was simply being in it for the first time, trekking up hills, feeling that powdery snow between her fingers, that was memorable enough for her.
Going to the snow takes on a whole new meaning when kids are involved. Just when you think you are completely prepared, you fall short. I remembered sunscreen but somehow over looked gloves, so shortly after these photos were captured we made a run to the convenience store. Mom fail.
Why is everything so picturesque in snow?
This bundled, rosy cheek baby melts my heart.
We came. We saw. We conquered.
As parents, we are in charge of writing our childrens stories with each and everyday. Yesterday will eventually prove to be another experience filed away in her memory bank. It’s a bunch of little things like this, that eventually become big things that shape who we become. That there, makes it all worth it. Cold hands and all.
Have a great week!
