Snow Day a term that brings joy to children, well until they hear the words make up day. Here in North Carolina we are having an unusual winter and just had our second good snow fall of the winter. Schools have been out since Tuesday and it has snowed at some point everyday. Where I live we have had over 6 inches of snow and then some sleet and freezing rain on top of it. There is plenty of snow on the ground for good snow day fun. Between breaks in the snow and sleet kids have been out building snow forts and snow men, having snow ball fights and sledding.
My kids even asked to go for a hike so we went for a short one on snow day 2.
Then on snow day 3 I decided to take my camera out with me as I did just over 2 miles. I’m tapering for the Disney Princess Half Marathon and a hike in the snow and ice was definitely a workout.
Everything was iced over and looked beautiful
One thing I can say about snow days is that kids need their fuel for hours of outdoors fun. You have to start your day out right with a good breakfast. I like to make my kids a nice warm breakfast and my Simple Waffles are perfect for snow day mornings like we have been having. Simple Waffles are just that. They are made from simple ingredients and cook up beautifully. I’ve had my recipe for years and I always come back to it. It is our families favorite and I hope it becomes your families favorite too!
