Elin has been dying to get out in the snow and play all winter long, but we hadn’t got much snow; or when we did, it was too cold to play in or it melted before we got much time outside. But, finally this weekend we got a a few inches thrown on us and then the weather warmed up and it was perfect weather for actually playing in the snow.
Elin got to play on and ride her sled that was her Nana’s when she was little. It looked good as new!
Perhaps the most anticipated event was making her her very first snowman. Elin watched Frosty the Snowman too many times to count over the Christmas season and she loves Olaf so she was more than excited to make one of her own for the first time.
This little guy was modeled after Olaf. Although I won’t blame you if you can’t see the resemblance. Elin loved him! She loved when we brought out carrots for the nose (and arms apparently) because she loves to eat carrots so she enjoyed snacking on about 4 of them out in the snow! I was shocked at how many she ate since they were huge.
It was such a pretty day for playing in the snow! Elin throughly enjoyed it. We never got to play in the snow last year and the year before that she was too little to do anything but sit in the snow so it was so exciting to watch her get to really enjoy and experience the snow for the first time.
