We only stayed about half an hour since that was about all our girls could handle. Lucie was exhausted (she didn't have a nap all day) and a little freaked out by the snow. I don't think she cracked a smile the entire time.
Ella enjoyed seeing the snow but once the coldness set in her attitude changed. She is much like her momma -- when she gets cold, she gets grumpy. And unfortunately, we are lacking in snow-appropriate gear. Ella doesn't have snow boots or even rainboots so her shoes and ankles were soaking within minutes. At that point, she really wanted Daddy to hold her...and soon after that she started to ask about when we would be going home.
All in all, it was a fun adventure...and a lesson for me. I seriously need to find some cold-weather gear for Ella! She's set to go to the UK with Brett during spring break and that adventure could be pretty miserable if she gets too cold. So, now my search begins for some waterproof shoes, a warm coat and gloves that actually fit!
