First Snow of the Season

Today we woke up to the first snow of the season. It was nice wet sticky snow, perfect for snowballs, snowmen and playing in - and warm enough outside to go out.

I took Charlie and Max out to Sherwood Park to play with their cousins Brooklyn and Anson for a couple of hours. There was more snow there - 30 minutes from their place - than there was in Edmonton.

Brooklyn and Charlie wasted no time going out into the back yard to play. They started out building a snowman but didn't get very far on that project and ended up throwing snow at each other.
Brooklyn scooped up a huge handful of snow

Charlie and Brooklyn had a standoff...

Then Charlie came up with a much larger handful of snow and all bets were off....

Snow flew through the air.

Charlie liked it...

Brooklyn tried rolling the world's biggest snowball.

Charlie changed tactics and created a snow angel.

Brooklyn thought it was just a big laugh.


just wanted to eat the snow. A great start to winter this year.
