We awoke to a snowy landscape, and one of those quiet days when it’s nice to enjoy being at home. After a big breakfast, I spent a couple hours outside clearing the driveway with the tractor. With enough wind, we have drifts at various places in the driveway, and I’m thankful the tractor really clears the snow. Mom and the boy stayed inside baking fresh bread- yum! But then it was time to play… So as the sun came out we bundled up again to enjoy some fun in the snow.
The Yellow Lab had some fun of his own… he loves the snow and ran around in circles as fast as he could, and then ran again for hundreds of yards kicking up the snow. He was smiling the whole time!
“Look at me!” the boy says, enjoying the powdery snow. We pulled a sled around the property trying out the hills.
But fresh snow is always good for a snow angel!
Our Labrador Retriever “pup” is so goofy… and look at him jump! He leaps into the air and goes crazy chasing snowballs. Now when you throw a snowball and it lands, well… in the snow, it’s kind of hard to find! But the dog doesn’t know that- he tries to catch it, then runs in circles looking for it after it squishes into powder! It’s so funny…
The Basset Hound and Shiba Inu watched the Labrador jumping after snowballs, wondering “What is he doing?! Do they really taste that good?!”
There’s something about sunlight and shadows on the snow. It was a fun day and the landscape was beautiful.
