this little family went to the snow and had a revelation…we don’t know how to dress for the snow.
it is only a three hour drive to the snow. we go every year after christmas.
this year there was actually legit, pull- your -sled- out -and- go- down- that -really- pretty -snowy- hill -without- mud -and- rocks -scraping- the- bottom- of- your- sled- type snow. it was reeeal nice.
we were not that prepared. it is the same thing every year. i see snow clothes at random in the gap and think “oh snow clothes, but we only go once a year”.
i don’t get them. then they are gone. then we go to the snow. we panic. we stop at the only store in town, kmart, and pick up some really bad snow clothes.
this year we didn’t even stop at Kmart so myes didn’t have proper boots and kept sneaking into mine. the kids only had mittens, not waterproof gloves and no goggles or sunglasses. so after they handed us our Parent’s of the Winter Season award we decided it was time to start looking for some proper snow clothes, because this year we are going to the snow two times. yep. so the search has begun.
the key to happy snow kids is warmth. daddy got them all patagonia jackets this year which were life changing. they are light weight so the kids don’t feel too younger brother from the Chirstmas Story-ish walking in the snow, BUT warm. real real warm.
i usually try to buy gender neutral so we can pass everything on down. it doesn’t always work, when ruby looked at me with those eyes and begged for pink boots, i caved. however, her super small gray bibs are all me baby. no caving there.
and baby ello, well his pants are maybe for a 12 month old…but you can’t tell from looking at the length can you? baha. poor kid, doesn’t even know.
we decided to take our outfits public since we were lookin so fly and put the kids in ski/snowboard school. as you can tell ruby is super self conscience and not having any fun at all.
myes caught on so fast and did great… the instructor said he was the best in the class if you will allow me to brag for a moment.
