Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

If you’re a follower on my Instagram account then you will probably have guessed that my post for #Whatevertheweather this week was going to be about the white stuff, snow that is.

We had a good snowfall on Wednesday night and a bit more over the weekend, so we’ve been making the most of it as we know it will probably be gone by the end of the week.

Cue the myriad of snow pics from our week.

This is the first year O has properly enjoyed sledging and so we’ve been out a couple of times a day with his sledge.  We found a great slope at the park, which loads of other families go to and O was loving watching everyone whizzing down the hill, falling off and even going backwards.

Of course we had to visit the park on Monday as well. Unfortunately the play equipment wasn’t as good with snow, except the swings, which A adores.  So O and I made mazes in the snow to find tiny snowmen.

We observed which animals had been in the snow by looking at their tracks.  We found rabbit, bird and dog tracks, A wasn’t as impressed, but O seemed quite interested.

At home we built a snowman (on the first night it snowed!) and a snow train yesterday with our remaining snow.

All in all it’s been a pretty fun (and cheap!) week filled with snow.

How has your week been?

    You’ll never forget their first snowman and that excitement on their face when they first see REAL SNOW! Looks like the lovely fluffy stuff too, beautiful x #whatevertheweather

    What fun you’ve had this week in the snow! We didn’t have enough to do anything with it – not even a snowman. Boo! #Whatevertheweather

    Oh I’m jealous you have snow, my children have been desperate for some for the last three years! Looks you had a great time in the snow.

    Lots of fun and some lovely pictures, especially the snow and the sky! I live in Hampshire and we have had none so I am a little envious of you all but hooray for snow 🙂 x

    My kids keep asking to see the family with snow’s Instagram feed – we are so jealous of you down here – the photos you have posted this week have been stunning xx

    Looks like great fun was had by all! We got a bit of snow but not really enough to make a snowman, never mind a snow train! Lovely pictures xx

    Your time with the snow looks like so much fun – and I just love the snow car. Very creative!
    We’re desperate for some snow, we’ve had lot (and lots!) of rain and some really freezing days when it’s been -2degrees on the school run, but no snow.
    PLEASE, let us get some snow!!

    I have loved following your adventures on Instagram this last week. I love snow and we’ve been trying to take full advantage of it (it’s all gone now save for a lonely lump on our front garden which was a snowman once). Looks like you all had great fun!

  12. January 20, 2016 / 11:37 am

    It looks like you had a fantastic time. We are so jealous of the amount of snow you had- your photos are stunning. We love the tiny snowman!

    Those pictures are just beautiful, snow makes everything magical! We had snow in Surrey on Sunday and made the most of it as it had melted by the afternoon. Sarah #whatevertheweather

    Proper snow! I’m so jealous it looks gorgeous! I miss the old days of proper snow and sledging.

  15. January 20, 2016 / 1:10 pm

    We followed animal tracks in the snow this weekend too!! Small world 🙂 I also love that you have another name for “sledding”. Is a “sledge” different than a sled? Intriguing 😉

  16. January 20, 2016 / 2:10 pm

    So much fun, I wish it was snowing here! My kids have never really seen snow and I am sure they would adore it: it’s cold enough today for it to fall, maybe I’m lucky and tomorrow we can have a day at the park as fun as yours! #whatevertheweather

  17. January 20, 2016 / 2:25 pm

    We’ve had no snow and I’m desperate to get out in it! We’re very jealous! Looks like a lovely winter wonderland! #Whatevertheweather x

    I’m so jealous of all that snow you’ve had! It all looks beautiful, your photos are stunning. It hasn’t snowed here but when I had in recent years it turns grey and slush is pretty quickly. I love that you found all the animal tracks, and Luke would have LOVED the snow train! Ray xx #WhateverTheWeather

  19. January 20, 2016 / 9:56 pm

    Wow your pictures are beautiful! We had some snow too but no where near as much as you, I’m slightly jealous x

  20. January 21, 2016 / 9:02 am

    Oh my goodness, you guys are so lucky! We had to drive up to Dartmoor just to play with snow (Will link-up that post next week. Linked a different one for this week:) Love the photos! The kids look like they are having the time of their lives 🙂 #whatevertheweather

  21. January 21, 2016 / 9:52 am

    Such glorious photos, especially the first one looking up at the blue sky. You are lucky to get snow and I am a little jealous 🙂

  22. January 21, 2016 / 7:44 pm

    No snow here on the Devon coast but we did have some pretty big hail last weekend. I love the snow train – great free fun 🙂 #whatevertheweather

  23. January 23, 2016 / 6:50 am

    So many gorgeous shots of snowy scenes Jenny! And looks like you have had so much fun making the most of the star ow. Love it (and am a little jealous!) xx

  24. January 23, 2016 / 9:09 pm

    That snowman is adorable! And very much impressed by the train. Hurray for snow days!

  25. January 23, 2016 / 9:53 pm

    I’m so jealous of your snow, we’re yet to have any here and I can’t wait to help make my sons first snow man xx

  26. January 23, 2016 / 10:13 pm

    I’ve loved seeing your snow pics! I was hoping we’d get a bit, but we just got a light dusting and it all went after a couple of hours 🙁 One day I’ll get to take Finn sledging, I may have to move to Scotland! #whatevertheweather

  27. January 24, 2016 / 7:51 pm

    Your pictures are so lovely. Wow I am incredibly jealous! We’ve had 10 degrees and blue skies! I would give anything to see snow like this. I don’t think I’ve ever seen it this thick in my life. It looks like so much fun and I can see why you’d find lots to do to fill your week. Please send some our way! xx

  28. January 25, 2016 / 11:34 am

    Wow! So so pretty! I wish we have had that much snow! Looks like the kids really enjoying the most of it. x

  29. January 27, 2016 / 7:39 am

    I am so jealous we had literally a sprinkling of snow at the weekend nothing more. Monkey keeps asking when it’s going to come back. He’s never been sledging 🙁 . Looks like you had a whale of a time though!! Thank you for hosting #Whatevertheweather xx
