It’s freezing outside today.
It’s also blowing which makes it feel even colder.
Like -12 degrees cold.
It also snowed last night.
Everything is covered in about 3 inches of snow.
It’s really pretty…until you go outside.
Even the birds are trying to stay warm today.
So with the below freezing temperatures plus the wind, we’ve decided to spend as much time indoors today.
I’ve been organizing a lot of photographs I’ve shot over the last 6 months or so.
Man, I take a lot of pictures.
Anyway, I was looking at some photos from two weeks ago when it snowed just before Christmas.
Banks does not have snow boots, but the temperatures were warm enough that we just had to get him in the snow.
So what do you do when your kid doesn’t have snow shoes?
If you’re me, you improvise and use plastic grocery bags from a recent shopping trip.
Banks didn’t seem to care much about what he had covering his feet.
He just thought the snow was pretty cool.
When we set him down on the snow he decided to take off and explore.
He’s a pretty independent little guy.
Banks, be careful!
A face full of snow didn’t seen to phase him though.
In fact, he went out past the tractor tracks–with the help of his daddy.
We didn’t stay outside for very long.
In fact, when we said it was time to go inside, Banks tried to get away.
I guess the kid thought that wearing two layers of socks, two layers of pants, two layers of shirts, mittens, beanie, jacket, shoes, and his double bags on each foot deemed him extra time outside.
Who would’ve thought a double layer of plastic grocery bags tied to a kid’s legs would make a little boy so happy?!?
