Snow In The Sunshine State - WHAT?!

One of the things I love about living in Florida is that we can be outside and active nearly year round. And we try to take as many opportunities as we can to enjoy that as a family. Over the winter break,  we took in some area parks:

We visited a national park and learned about the junior ranger program. SB filled out a form with information she learned while visiting the site. Then she was "sworn in," taking an oath and receiving a badge and certificate. She thought it was the Coolest. Thing. Ever.

She also had a blast running around like a wild animal. The girls has a lot of wiggles she needs to get out on a daily basis...

Just a few weeks after we were outside enjoying the sunshine and comfortable temperature, some changes rolled in. Something called a, "Polar Vortex." I'm not a fan. But, being in the Northeast corner of the state, we do get a little touch of winter. In fact, last week we had snow.

Which around here is a Very. Big. Deal. There were reports of flurries all over town. SB spent hours by the window, her eyes to the sky. We did not see any snow here. But the fact it was happening in our city was a very big deal to my Florida native husband and child.

Me? I moved here to get away from all that business. But, I would have loved to watch her experience snow for the first time.

Because seriously, the cuteness level? Off the charts.
