We pulled on our hats and scarves, gloves and boots and put on as many layers as we could fit under our coats and trudged over to the park. You have to walk down a long pathway between the houses to get there and when you reach the bottom you find yourself in a large open area that follows a river for quite a distance. Now to me there's nothing quite as beautiful as a vast expanse of freshly fallen snow, gleaming and white, the most mundane sights become transformed with a layer of it and this was the view that greeted us today.
Anyway we had a great time having snowball fights, chasing each other around, shrieking and laughing and making snow angles in all shapes and sizes. We stayed until our gloves soaked through and our noses started to hurt, sodden but happy we made our way home.
It has started to snow again this evening and our coats are only now finally dry but I think we will spend tomorrow out in it too because by next weekend there will probably be none left and who knows when we will get the chance to do it once more!
