One thing we miss about Portland is how close the mountain to play in the snow is. So, a couple months ago we decided to plan a snow trip. We booked our condos and in mid February thinking there would be enough snow, we drove up to Pinetop to have a snow day. We got there and to our surprise they had a bad snow year, so there was hardly any snow. There were only patches of snow around. Outside the condo there was a large patch. So we had the kids play on that.
Joshua pulled the kids around on the sled.
Theodore LOVED the sled.
Enlai & his Daddy Mike teamed up against Joshua for a snow ball fight!!!
The ice was so hard, it was hard to build a snow man. So we built a snow monster. :)
Theodore had fun exploring.
On Sunday morning, when we woke up, it had snowed a little bit. And then on the news a couple days later, they got 6" of snow! We were so sad. We just picked the wrong weekend I guess. and the worst...is this past week up in Flagstaff, they got over 3' of snow!!!! Well...next time we will just plan for March snow trips. :)
