a snowy story

once upon a time, four little kiddies came home from school on winters day and discovered the most beautiful snow they had ever seen right in their own backyard! without question, they ran into their house and donned their winter attire wasting no time in the process! the sun was shining brightly, the air, crisp, neighborhood, quiet, and laughter, plentiful!

yes, perfect for an afternoon of tubing and frolicking in the fresh, powdery snow!

the boys started out by testing the snow... making sure it was soft and light.
after the loving mother blew up the tube, it was time for some serious sliding down the steep hill.
brave jack, at times, didn't require a tube. in fact he preferred it that way

and experimented different strategies to maneuver the intimidating slope.

little max preferred playing off on his own, doing his own thing...
like licking the snow..
and throwing it on his head.
it was a lovely afternoon. they selflessly (for the most part) took turns helping the others on the tube and gazed on as another swiftly flew down.
then, still gleeful, they grew too tired and cold to continue on.
so they went inside and found this awaiting them.
it was delicious.
and finally, what snow day would be complete without a hot chocolate mustache?

the four children were happy.

it was a very good day.

the end.
