Why do schoolwork when there is a gloriously lazy but steady snowfall to enjoy???
Trin and I spent nearly two hours this morning on a spontaneous walk in the snow that included hot coco with melted marshmallows, catching snowflakes on our tongues, a cranky goose and…well…the rest of the journey I give you in photos:
(Why yes, that IS hot chocolate around Trin’s mouth.)
As soon as our hot chocolate was finished, Trinity declared war. The entire second half of our journey was one big snowball fight: Mixed with the occasional stop for making snow-angels: And stopping to admire some horses. Notice she DID remain armed and dangerous during this photo op, plotting her next attack. I believe that particular snowball wound up a dead hit at the back of my collar and proceeded to drip down my neck and back as it quickly melted. 😀It was a tremendously fun morning but I have to admit, my favorite part came last of all. With about 1/3 of a mile to go Trinity called for a truce then asked if she could hold my hand, which she did the rest of the way home. It was enough to melt this mommy’s heart on a snowy day.
Love, love, love it! Trin will likely always remember this. Her Mom, however definitely will.
Yes, I will!!, I hope she does too…Well, with this blog post officially in the archives she will, eventually, have it in a photo/blog book like I made the girls for Christmas. Then she’ll have it for posterity. 😀
Yup, loved it too. What a lovely mother/daughter memory. And I love that she’s not too old to want to hold your hand.
