We finally got hit with a storm here in Albany. We woke up to at least 8 inches of snow and by the time Gavin and I headed out to play it seemed deeper than that! It's a very wet snow, much like what we'd get in the northwest. It's actually not very cold here- mid 30s. I thought it would be nice for Gavin to practice walking in his snowshoes in preparation for this weekend's hike. He was a little frustrated but he seemed to get the hang of it. Here is a little video of his efforts and some photos of the rest of our playtime.
When we got done with our snowshoe lesson, Gavin played in the backyard with the dogs. We then decided to build a snowman.
Gavin loved his Frosty and gave him a big hug... then, he picked his head up and threw it. Oh well... nice moment while it lasted!
