Over the weekend Chad took Cayden outside to play in the snow. They started out building a fort and ended up sledding. Cayden loved it! I went outside to check on them after about an hour and despite the fact that Cayden's nose and cheeks were bright red, there was snot running all over the place, and he was freezing cold he refused to come inside.

Now to be completely honest, I think that this was the first time Cayden has ever played in the snow. Seriously. I don't think we've ever taken him out. Before this weekend he had never built a snow fort, or a snowman, or gone sledding. Ever. (Sadly, Cayden STILL hasn't built a snowman. We might have to fix that.) I guess Chad and I get the "bad parent of the year" (or years...) award. Regardless of the fact that we've been slacker parents, Cayden loved sledding and playing in the snow. Laura... not so much.

The snow fort Cayden and Daddy built. I think Chad was more into it than Cayden.

Yay for sledding! Laura had no idea what she was getting herself into.

Laura and Daddy on the way down.

By the time they got to the bottom of the hill, Laura had decided she wasn't a fan of sledding. Maybe next year. :)

Cayden was a much bigger fan of sledding than Laura. Chad and Cayden went out a few days later and built a mini jump on this hill. The first time Cayden went off it, he totally wiped out. He had some sort of road rash/snow burn on his face for the rest of the day.
