Snapshots: First SnowSaturday, January 19, 2013
I want to apologise to you all now, this post is going to be incredibly image heavy, I just couldn't decide which of these were my favourites. In fact I am kind of proud of myself for cutting it down to this many.
Edinburgh has been promised snow for the past week and I've been waiting desperately for it to arrive. I absolutely love snow, it just makes the world look so much more beautiful and it seems to make everyone a little bit more cheerful. But most importantly, our Husky-pup Mania has never really seen snow before. I know, a husky that has never seen snow, ridiculous. We had a tiny bit last year but it was barely a sprinkling, so we have been really excited waiting for her to experience it fully.
We got our wish last night, and it was everything we could have hoped to. She absolutely loved it. We only went for a short walk but she managed to entertain everyone on the street by trying to attack the snow as it fell and jumping round our feet. She was absolutely adorable. I've never seen her so upset to go back inside, I think if we had let her she would have slept in it.
I was worried it might have been gone by this morning, but if anything it was even thicker. so we took them to play in the park near our house. It was absolutely lovely, there were groups of people all over the place building snowmen and generally acting like small kids and we couldn't help but join in. Both the dogs had an amazing time chasing snowballs, digging through the start of our snowman and rolling around. I'm so glad I had my camera both times so I could capture some of the fun. There's thick cloud again at the moment so maybe we will have a couple of days of fun ahead of us.
