Snow Days Are the Best Days

Snow days are the best days . . . only if you don’t have to drive anywhere! This morning we woke up to tons of snow! I didn’t even know there was a storm coming in. This photo is from our last snowstorm, but it looks exactly as it did this morning

Snow Storm

All of this snow, reminded me that I have been talking about trying to squeeze in one more sledding adventure before winter is over (and believe me, I’m ready for winter to be over!). We took our two year old sledding for the first time over the Christmas holidays, we weren’t sure how we would do, but he loved it!! He kept saying “Weeeee” all the way down.

I think before we go sledding next, I’ll check out some books from the library aboutLongjohns sledding and winter. I’m reminded at the moment of a book we just returned that I thought was so cute, I just might check it out again. It’s Longjohns by Kit Allen. This is a delightful little board book about all the things you need to wear to play outside on a cold day: longjohns, pants, mittens, coat, etc. A very cute baby book. Kit Allen also has baby books titled Galoshes, Sweater, andSwimsuit.

Some other great winter reads (for baby and toddler age) that I’ll be checking out are: Winter Babies Wear Layers by Michelle Sinclair, Just a Snowy Day by Mercer Mayer (reminds me of my own childhood, I loved Mercer Mayer books), and What Can You Do in the Snow by Anna Grossnickle Hines and Thea Kliros. I really want to check this last one out, the front cover has a Boston Bull Terrier dog, my favorite!

Do you have any winter favorite reads to recommend? I’m always on the lookout for great children’s books!

  1. This winter has been crazy in Utah. We haven’t got this much snow fro a long time. A downside is people seem to drive like fools, the upside s playing in the snow is a blast.

  2. Great pics! I love the snow but we did get BLASTED this year with the most snow we have seen in over 100 years (something like 75 inches). But, I wouldn’t live somewhere where my daughters couldn’t experience this -it is beautiful:)
