Solstice Sugar

We got about 4" of fresh snow, so we bundled up our little bundle of joy and ran out to enjoy it! 
We pulled Ben around the yard to evaluate our potential sledding slopes.
Benjamin tasted the Solstice sugar all along the way. He scooped it up with his gloves and made funny little smacky-licky sounds. Maybe it was just silliness? Maybe it was curiosity? Maybe he was thirsty? Maybe he is lacking some mineral and we should buy him a salt lick?
We found that the snow was too dry and fluffy for snow balls or snowmen to stick together.
But, the snow was perfect for grooming a small sled run on the north west corner of our property.
It wasn't too cold to play but, it was cold enough that we finally started to look toward the house, craving a warm cup of cocoa.
Lucy came out to play with us, follow us around, and dig in the snow after the mice and voles she thought she could uncover. After freezing her paws trying, she was happy to follow us back into the house for her food bowl.
We can't believe this little snow-eater is the same kid who was afraid to touch snow as a 2-year-old.
I'll bet our little snow angel has a snowman and a snow-fort in his near future!
Fun! Fun! Fun!
