Hello long lost blog !  It's certainly been a while !  I sort of just went back to putting everything on facebook instead of here, but I figured with us moving, it's a good time to document that, and get this blog up and running again so our good friends can keep up with what's happening with us.  I'll get more into the move in future posts.

This is our fifth winter in Kamloops.  The year Dylan was born was crazy snowy.  This winter is shaping up to be worse !  The temperatures are decent- not too cold, but the amount of snow is huge !  Possibly more than the year Dyl was born.

Today, Dylan and I had a lovely play date with a good friend and her adorable little one.  After they went home, we were playing downstairs when we heard this loud noise outside.  I looked out, and there was tiny hail stones falling into our winter wonderland.  It was the oddest thing.  I yelled for Dyl to get his pants (don't ask) and we promptly went out and marveled in it.  

It was pretty amazing.  It lasted for about 15 minutes.  We went in, took a bucket of the hail inside to put in our freezer, and then the rain fell.  Rain falling fast into the winter wonderland.  Soooo odd !  

It was a fun experience, something i'd never seen with the hail coming down in WINTER.  Dylan enjoyed the novelty of it, and we didn't think twice about getting dressed as quickly as we could and going out to enjoy it.  It's times like this that I love the nature of being an at home mom.  We can follow our whim, and do what pleases us.
