I finally got to play in the snow!! Y’all it’s been a few years since I’ve got to visit the snow. This past Monday my whole family had the day off of work and school (which is so rare) that we all decided to make a day of it and go visit the mountains. If you live pretty much anywhere in the US right now then you know everyone is either experiencing snow or rain. I saw a news article that said that 49 out of the 50 states have snow right now. Isn’t that so crazy!?
We live about an hour to an hour and a half away from our local mountains and with all the rain that we have been getting they just look beautiful with their snow caps. It’s honestly such a tease to see them every day and not be able to find the time to visit. Once my family had the chance we all just kind of jumped on it and made a visit happen. We have two main mountain towns and my mom has some friends who live in one of them. They have the cutest little cottage up there, and they let us borrow their sleds.
Being that it’s so rare for my family to see snow our closets aren’t exactly brimming with appropriate gear. I love my outdoor adventures and I try to be pretty prepared for any situation, but my sister just had to layer up! However, I did learn that as great as my Hunter Boots are at keeping my feet dry, one pair of socks was not enough! Other than my feet which were cold I was pretty warm. I layered a sweater, fleece, puffer jacket and I was good!
It was such a fun day getting to spend it with my family. My parents built a mini snow man, and we all sled down a few different hills. We found a nice little spot on the side of the road that had two good hills. One was a bit steeper than the others and man did it go fast! If you were following me on snapchat Monday than you saw how much speed we got. It was such a lovely way to spend our extra day off!
