Last week we had our first snow since moving to Washington.
So, needless to say, I was walking in a lot of this on the way to and from the barn. If only it stayed at this nice depth the whole time.
Toni llama is not very fond of the snow it seems.
In fact, both Toni and Dolly have been quite grumpy since the snow began. Dolly has no trouble communicating. Right this minute Im hearing her scold Toni (yet again) for her eating technique. Which really just means, stay outta my bucket.
There have been lots of frozen water buckets to tend to.
And of course, when its really cold, you can see your breath.
Grumpy llamas aside....G is very happy to see the snow.
I think last week J and G had zero days of school due to the snow and Thanksgiving break. They werent concerned.
First order of business? Test the packing ability of the snow.
J says its too dry for snowballs.
G, always the one to try and prove his big brother wrong....thinks the snow is just fine. See, he says.
How could J walk away from that?
After the snow"ball" fight...it was decided to move onto bigger and better things.
For some reason, the sleds didnt make it on the move here...or, they just havent been found yet...Im not certain. I need to look in the barn attic. But in the interim, J tends to be quite resourceful.
A wading pool seems like a great alternative. Run...
Jump in... GO! Yeah, not so much.
Maybe if he turns backwards.
Him and G try to figure this out.
And with lack of a better idea...G decides just to push him down the hill.
A few trips down the hill later...hot cocoa is in order.
