I'm so glad that we live somewhere that gets snow (& not just cold miserable weather). The snow makes it all worth while.

I had a great day going to the top of 'the mountain' with the kids on Friday. The sun was out, there was lots of snow around, and it was easy to get to - the weekends can be a traffic nightmare. Max was sooooo excited as we had been watching the snowline moving up & down the mountain all week. He searches for the "snow mountain" as we navigate around Hobart, particularly since we have been talking about snow-men of late - or as Max calls them no-man.

Adelaide really loved it as well, although she was quite annoyed to be unable to remove her mittens (a small win her me!). The only down-side was discovering there was no memory card in the camera, fortunately my mobile can take a half decent photo.....even if you can't actually see the screen to frame the shot!

And I actually remembered everything (a small miracle); kids lunches, the thermos, the hot chocolate, scarves, beanies, coats, all-in-one-suits, mittens, sled, carrot, sticks for snowman arms, a shovel to collect some snow, a nappy bucket to carry the snow, etc...........

We dropped this little bit of the mountain off for Tim as he missed out on the whole adventure.

We also brought snow home so Tim could build a snowman with Max, Max promptly ate his
nose after this shot!

Wish we had some snow, we just get the cold. The "no-men" look like fun.
