Snow Day

We finally got a chance to enjoy some snow here in Raleigh, NC. It was so much fun playing outside and introducing Aidan to the snow! James had off work (along with everyone else in Raleigh) so he was able to spend the day with us!

Almost 5 inches!

Aidan was so bundled up that when he fell over, he could not stand back up!

We found a hill close by that kids had been sliding down all day. By the time we got there, most of the snow had turned to ice, making for a fun ride down for James.

Aidan and I found a smaller hill that was still covered with soft snow!

He loved it!! What a great day! The snow lasted for about 2 days, then melted as we hit the 50s again! I got my fix, but would love to see more snow every once in a while!

Visit from The Whitman's and Marbles Children's Museum

James sister Julie came to visit over MLK weekend! Thanksgiving was the last time Aidan was with his cousins and it is amazing to see the difference in interaction in 2 short months. Aidan had so much fun playing with the kids and was so excited to see them every morning, and after nap time! Lauren is such a helper and Aidan really enjoyed her attention!

Danial and Aidan are closest in age, being 2 years apart. That gap is starting to seem smaller now and it is really special to see Aidan enjoying boy time!

We took the kids to Marbles Children's Museum on Sunday. I have taken Aidan once before, but I think he enjoyed it much more this time around. He was able to run wild and actually play with all the different activities there are for children.

He is dancing to a music video here!

He loved the train table....future birthday gift?

Aidan being silly!
