It sleeted and pelted wet snow Tuesday night in Chirstchurch, but up in the Port Hills it snowed. Thursday was gorgeous sunny so Milo and I took a drive up Dyers Pass. I had been feeling pretty grumpy about winter and it’s associated goose bumps, but as soon as we saw snow it all changed–now I hope we can plan a weekend snowshoe trip somewhere in the mountains. Amazing what a bit of white will do for the spirits. Milo like it too, and it’s quite a novelty for him. Plus, the day was calm and sunny and really quite warm for winter.
We spent a few minutes chucking hunks of snow over the bank. “One, Two, Three, Boom!” Lyttelton Harbor is in the background.
Stamping on Mommy’s shadow is a new favorite activity for Milo. He giggles while I squeal and run away. Summit Rd is perfect for this–open and quiet.
“Under!” Milo declares. It took me a minute to compute, but he was the bridge and the water was going under him. Ah, the simple joys of a two year old!
Yup, this is our yard the same week, no snow down in Christchurch city. Milo was a good helper for raking leaves and squishing them down in the compost bin. Plus he’s a fun little companion, all the more so since he’s become so chatty. Still just single words strung together, but you get a window into what he’s thinking.
