Not Everyone Loves a Snow Day

We woke up to snow this morning.  This is pretty much the most exciting thing ever... EVER... for Caleb as we do not often get snow around here.  I ended up digging through all of the closets in a panic this morning-- searching for mitts and snow pants-- knowing that the kids would be playing outside at preschool this morning.

During our drive home after preschool the conversation went something like this:

Caleb:  Mom, do they have snow in Saskatchewan?
Me:  Yup.  A lot of snow.
Caleb:  Well, do they have snow in Quebec?
Me:  Um, yeah probably.  (they do... right?)
Caleb:  How about BC?
Me.  Of course.  Just look outside.
Caleb:  Do they have snow in Lynden?  Oh, I mean London!
Me:  Yeah, I definitely don't know if they have snow there.  London is pretty far away.
Caleb:  Yeah.  It's probably even farther than Disneyland.  Do they have snow in Disneyland?

Then we arrived at home.  Thank goodness!  Caleb and I decided that we should probably have a late lunch and keep playing in the snow.

Emerson however, was not impressed.  Turns out that postponing lunch and sitting in a stroller while Caleb played in the snow was not her idea of a fun time.

She was pretty bored.

She was determined to not have a good time.

And finally refused to even look at the camera-- let alone smile.

Well-- turns out that all she wanted was lunch.

Hooray for broccoli!  I love broccoli more than snow!!

Super cute post. Reminds me that I have been meaning to ask you if you need to borrow a snowsuit for Emerson again this Christmas? If yes let me know. I just packed one away that might fit her if you need it.
