SNOW!!!

I woke up really early this morning, and I was very cold, sitting in the dark, drinking my coffee.  Eventually N woke up. We chatted for a while, pondering the universe. At some point I asked him to look outside.  And this is what we saw!!!
SNOW!

We walked to the river and spent an hour and a half playing, having a huge 3-way snowball fight, making snow angels, and basically getting soaking wet.  The kids were drenched, cold and wet by the time we finally walked down to Obanzai for an yummy all-you-can-eat vegetarian Japanese food buffet.

It was great to be able to take the time off and just enjoy the day!

Here are some pictures and movies.

We pushed them downhill for fun because we couldn't lift them up to make a snowman.
