A Sorry Excuse for Snow

Corah is 15 months old, and she has yet to witness a good snow. She watched a few flurries fall this year, so she was excited in later February when a tiny bit of snow stuck to the ground. We bundled her up and took her outside to experience the white stuff.

Having a white backyard made her squeal with delight.  She smiled until she fell down for the first time.  After that, she wanted "up peeze."
The boots I put on her to protect her feet turned out to be more of a hazard than a help. 
Corah had her first sledding experience on 1/4 of snow.  It was enough snow to pick up speed on the slight incline near our front steps.  She wasn't sure about sledding at first, but after a few runs down the "hill," sledding hooked her for life.  She's a complete junkie.  

Kenly went sledding for the first time in the womb.  She entered the world asking to sled.  She's a pro now.
She even took Corah sledding.

Oh Chance, why do you hate sledding so much?  Why do you think we are in grave danger?  Thank you for trying to protect us from harm.

So, it was a sorry excuse for snow that melted after about 30 minutes of play.  But, I'm so glad we braved the bitter cold so that Corah could experience a winter wonderland.
