That is the amount of snow that we received on May 7. Rather than being completely freaked out, the kids, Mike and Daphne decided to enjoy it. I was personally a bit freaked out, but kept myself amused by seeing how much fun they were all having.
By lunchtime this is what our backyard looked like. I didn’t have much luck playing fetch with Daphne. She had difficulty finding the ball and when she did actually locate it, she rolled it around so much that it turned into a snowball.
After we all got home from work and school, Mike pulled out the sleds from the top shelf in the garage while I dug out winter boots, hats and mittens. Mike and the kids piled up snow for a jump in the backyard, then pretended it was February instead of May.
The plants, bushes and trees took a bit of a beating.
After getting my fill of snow, I headed inside while the kids and Mike stayed out to play some more. Sophia found it amusing to throw snowballs at me while I was looking out the window.
Sebastian also found it very amusing.
