April Blizzard

In Colorado, April is a heavy snow month. We've been slowly heading into spring, with a few light rain showers; trees and flowers were beginning to bloom. Our winter snow had mostly melted with only a few small patches of icy and dirty snow left around the yard. Maisie loved to jump in muddy puddles like Peppa Pig.

Unfortunately, spring was not here to stay as a huge storm was projected to hit our area over the weekend. On Friday morning, we had marginal snow flakes but no accumulation. By Sunday, our property was buried in nearly four feet of snow. 

The little dragons loved to watch the snowfall and enjoyed a few trips outside. By the time it stopped snowing, the snowfall was well above their heads and play areas were extremely limited. We spent the majority of our time inside, watching movies and playing. 

Maisie loved pretending to be Elsa and James was astounded at the amount of snow. He kept exclaiming "that's a really big snow pile!" - and he was right. This one was a storm for the record books.
