North Carolina Snow Day

Yes, here in the southern part of North Carolina we swoon and shut everything down when a light dusting of the precious white powder falls on our landscape. This Minnesota born and raised farm girl rolls her eyes a bit when it happens, however, after witnessing the shouts of glee and sparkles in my boys' eyes you won't hear me complain.








Wesley was made to experience nature. He whole-heartedly spent every moment he could outside.




 Between rounds of sledding, Wesley engorged himself with snow.





Grant, on the other hand, needed to be bribed to come outside. He preferred to relax by the fire. 


Marshmallows were his reward for braving the cold. :)










 But of course, along with hours of outside fun in the snow, there is much fun to experience indoors... 
Family movie time, playing cards, hot chocolate, painting and lots of snuggle time added to some great Snow Day memories.

Marshmallows & Sparklers




Enjoying the annual Independence Day Parade in Waxhaw

This was Grant's expression when he saw his school teacher during the parade.
The wider the mouth, the happier he is... He was really excited and happy to see her.

 "Don't forget to take a picture of the Grandparents with all the grandkids!"
The good, the not-so-good and the funny.
