On Thursday afternoon, we got about 4 inches. From Friday till Saturday we got about 8-10 more. Then Saturday night, we got freezing rain which coated the snow and made it a bit more difficult to leave the house. So obviously, with little else to do for four days, we had to go play in it!
What would pretty weather be without the mandatory photo shoot with the hubby! I'm so lucky to have married a guy who doesn't mind me dragging him all over with my camera while random people stare at us. I mean if it isn't documented it didn't happen right?!?
This was the first time Cooper really got to experience snow, so needless to say he loved it and wants to be outside playing in it all the time!
When it snows in Oregon, no one really knows what to do. We are a bit like the south in that respect so I could resonate with all my blogger friends in Georgia & Alabama when people were making fun of their reaction to the snow. There are no plows, people don't know how to drive (thanks woman who rear ended me on my way home from work), and no one even has a snow shovel. The city and state basically just shut down. It takes hours to get anywhere, the roads are a mess because the snow just piles up, and no one is prepared. So pretty much from Thursday afternoon till mid day on Monday, we stayed home and enjoyed the fact that we couldn't really drive anywhere. Sometimes it's nice to be forced to just relax and enjoy each other's company. While many other people are going stir crazy and ready for the snow to go away, I could go for a few more days of forced relaxation and time with my boys!
