Snow Day!

I realise for many of you, snow is nothing new. But for us here in central Victoria, Australia, it’s a real rarity.
Don’t get me wrong, it gets cold, really cold. Frost covered lawns, hail, rain and crazy winds. Even snow occasionally, but rarely does it fall so heavily and settle on the ground so thick.
Today was just magical for us. Our boys now 5 and almost 3, have never seen snow and I haven’t had many opportunities in my life either to have a snowball fight or build a snowman. Limbs and leaves clothed in sparkling white, it was truly a sight to behold.

We live in a country-ish town at the foot of Mount Macedon and this afternoon we bundled the kids into the car in their warmest woollies and headed up the mountain. Snow began hitting the windscreen as we drove higher and was met with squeals of delight… By all of us!
Honestly, it was like driving into Narnia.

A place where magic happens and memories are made.

The kids were beside themselves when we jumped out of the car, running off to make tracks in the snow, noticing how it crunched beneath their boots.

Television has obviously taught them about snow ball fights as they wasted no time getting stuck into that.

And before long, C and I joined in too.

J5 got busy rolling snowballs…

While R2 went exploring…

And of course, snowmen were constructed by cold, wet little hands.

Big and small…

It was the most fun we’ve had as a family in as long as I can remember.

Sometimes as adults we forget how to just play

Home for hot showers, hot cuppas and hot, salty fish n’ chips.
Perfection 🙂
