Our first Snow Day.

Now I know I may complain of the cold but it very rarely snows lower than the local hills. Today, however, I am watching it snow in my garden!

It's not settling but there are still snowflakes falling to the ground. I feel quite nostalgic for the few snow days we had in the UK.

As they say in FB-land -"Photo or it didn't happen!" here are my favourites of the morning in Tunnel Gully! I'll post the views of Cannons Point later tonight :)

Three snowballs came home with us and were used in a snowball fight in the garden... Monkey is a little confused as to why he can't keep the snow forever.

What! My gloves keep getting wet!

Stud1 took a little time off work to play in the snow with us!

  1. Very cool. I was tempted to drive to Taupo today because my two children have never ever seen snow. We had visitors, though, and couldn't go. Maybe tomorrow? :)

  2. Nice post! Wonderful pics!
    I love snowballs! ;)

  3. I love the sun coming through the clouds, or at least trying to. At least you got something fun out of all your cold weather. ;)
