Gavin and Mommy play in the snow

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!

Gavis is an awesome snow shoer - I love it when he goes offroad into the deep snow! And so funny about the snow man - such a boy!

oooh. So cute, I love when you post videos.

Gav is so cute, actually picking up the shoeing very quickly. I think it is funny how quickly he starts to fuss when it is not going his way...makes me laugh, but he got unstuck!

Love the frosty stuff...even though he loves frosty he still is a little boy and had to throw the head!

I'm jealous of your snow days! Today it looked like it was snowing--cherry blossoms.
