Winter Fun

This weeks Slice of Life is about Winter Fun!

Winter???  What's winter??  We seem to skip winter here on the Central Coast.  We do however have a rainy season.  That is when we aren't in a drought. 

When I was a little girl I lived in New Hampshire and enjoyed the snow. I remember one cold snowy winter school morning, my older brother Doug and had to trudge down our long driveway to wait for the school bus.  We couldn't resist and started playing in the snow and got our clothes really wet.  We went back in to change to dry clothes for school and missed the bus!  Our Dad had to come home from work to drive us to school and we were in big trouble! 

Here, where we live in California we don't see snow.  When the snow levels are low enough the closest snow is a couple of hours away at Mount Abel.  Once we went for a day to play in the snow.  We brought back two of our huge ice chests filled with snow.  The next day we brought out those ice chests and had fun with snow ball fights on our green front lawn.  We had some interesting looks from the passerby's on the street!!  But, it was a lot of fun and a cherished memory!!

Snowballs fights on a green front lawn must have made a lot of people look twice. Oh the fun Price kids can get into. Thanks for sharing.

That's a great thing to do - love the extra mile you went through to make a fun memory. And I bet your dad looked back on that and laughed. :)

You may have been in big trouble but you have a great memory. And ice chests full of snow? How clever you are.
