there is something so completely magical and special about the first snow of the season! we were lucky enough to experience ours on saturday here in the city and it didn’t disappoint on any level. after we managed the ordeal of getting snow gear on in an attempt to head to central park, we could barely get a few feet from our front stoop before the kids had plopped themselves down and were giddily scooping up snowballs like they were tiny puppies! we only live a short distance from central park, but it took us maybe a half hour to get there, since every snowflake that fell seemed more magical than the last and my kids were plenty content just playing with the snow from on top of parked cars along the street! it was very sweet. we did eventually make it into the park, where our papa randomly slid down a hill without a sled (and some strangers caught it on video! they came and found us to show us. we laughed so hard, we had them text it to us and i shared the video on instagram if you want to see! it’s a funny one.)
we ended our snow adventure with hot chocolate and some japanese take out. always love these first snowstorms and i’m so glad we documented some of ours. i’m always like, “eh, do we take the camera out in the snow?!” but then i’m always like, “i’m so glad we did that!” josh just tucked it into his coat during most of our outing to protect it from the wet snow and also warm and she did great. those things are so crazy durable and i’m so glad.
lots of photos!!!
see what i mean? couldn’t cross a street without stopping to build a snowman!
so, i couldn’t zip or button my snow pants (because of my baby bump) and they kept riding down! i was literally pulling them up every few steps and trying my best not to laugh.
when we pulled out all the snow gear and conrad spotting all the goggles, there was no turning back! he proudly wore his our entire afternoon outside!
there is something about the city in all the snow that makes me love new york even more. how is that even possible? i’m already very much ready for the next snowstorm, in case you wanna send her. ;)
some snowstorms from years past HERE and HERE (baby samson in the hand-me-down panda jacket conrad is wearing now!) and HERE is a fun post when we went sledding in central park and conrad was only a month old! so tiny!
