Let it snow

August 09, 2015  •  11 Comments

Sometimes the best laid plans don't work out, but eventually, things turn out just perfectly! We had planned our first family trip to the snow a few weeks back during school holidays and with all our gear packed and ready we had to cancel as two of the kids had woken up ill. It wasn't surprising as Winter tends to throw these bugs on us when we least need it.

So this week we decided to have a day off school and work and headed for the mountains. It was just a day trip, but with 4 kids I had packed enough clothing and food for a week!

The photos were all taken with my Samsung Note 4 as I was not going to risk taking my good camera gear. Plus I was all ready for some serious snowball fights and tobogganing. So I hope you don't mind the quality isn't as good as I would have liked, but I think the photos tell the story.

I hope you like them. We had a ball. Perfect weather, though overcast, there was no wind and we were warm and dry. 

Once you've checked out the photos, remember to visit the next 10/10 blog in the circle, the lovely Jen from Pierced Wonderings.  PS: Oops, I'm afraid that I've snuck in a few extra photos again this month.

Thanks for stopping by.

*10/10 Circle is a fun monthly photography project developed by Rowe Timson Photography, bringing my Cookie friends and lovers of photography together to document and share a piece of our lives one day each month, from our corners of the world. On the 10th of each month we launch our collective blogs, sharing 10 of our favourite photographs from that day.

The journey begins...

First signs of snow and there were cheers all around.

Feeling snow for the first time!  Snow angels!!!

Approval with 2 thumbs up!

Snow man competition! Boys against girls. This one was a Minion/Olaf combination made by the boys. Oh, and a sad face after a brief upset and creative differences during construction.

Getting some kisses from the girls.

Some snowman stomping and we're ready for the SNOWBALL FIGHT!

And the toboggan fun began! I managed to catch all five of my people in the shot. So much fun.

Her face says it all.

First time on his own and the eyes were tightly shut.

Time to head home. Obligatory mirror selfie. Looking out at the beautiful lush snow.

We enjoyed the breathtaking views on the way home.

Good bye Snowys, we'll be back soon.

We used to go to the snow every year but haven't been since the kids came along. We may get back into it next year though. xx
You can sneak in as many extras as you like. What a fun day! x
Ahhh snow envy!! I hate winter but love the snow after living in NZ for a year! My hubby isn't a fan so I haven't been in years! Stunning photos as always!! xx
