First Snow

Yesterday was our first snow. It also happened to coincide with the Winter Meetup of the Maine Flickr Meetup Group. I also happened not to be working.

Turnout for the meetup was excellent. I met some really great people and reconnected with old friends. Some people took pictures but I mostly talked, which is fine with me. The weather was perfect for the occasion. The snow flakes were large and coming down quite steadily. The girls had fun playing in the snow and throwing snowballs at me.

After the meetup the girls and I hung out at the bookstore until we could meet Kirsten for lunch. Hayley and Skye listened to music while Jenna read. Surprise, surprise.

Lunch with Kirsten was nice, as always. The girls and I enjoyed ice cream given to us by Mary, a coworker of Kirsten. Kirsten, predictably, ate soup.

When we got home Skye and Hayley played in the snow for several hours while Jenna stayed in and read.

  1. Sounds like fun! I wish we would get a good snow that wouldn’t melt so quickly. We did get ice this morning, but it’s all gone now. Sean had to walk me out to the van in his bare feet so that I wouldn’t fall, and carry Nora and Olivia out. But snow…I love snow!

  2. The meet-up was great, and it certainly looked like the girls were having a good time. I can’t wait for the next one.

  3. Those are really good pictures. I had a fun time there. I was expecting to be there for hours. I had fun throwing snowballs at you. I love you.

  4. Why do you do such cool stuff while I’m working??? I’m glad you had a good time. Awesome pictures!

    @Skye, Daddy said you had very good aim with your snowballs too. But why did you have to make him cry? ;-)
