Last weekend we had our first good snow with about 2-4 inches. The children had an awesome time playing outside. It took approximately 20 minutes to get all four children ready to go outside. We live in MN, so you have to factor in multiple layers of clothes, snow pants, winter jackets, snow boots, mittens, scarves, hats... the list goes on.
After being outside for only 5 minutes, I was begging the children to go inside. It was freaking cold out. I don't have snow pants. I couldn't find my winter boots -- and I own THREE PAIRS! Plus, I wasn't smart enough to search out a hat to wear.
