Snow Day!

The past couple have weeks have brought record temps across the US, and Texas was no exception! It rarely snows here in Austin, but this is the second time in two years that we have had a decent snowfall. By decent, I mean that the snow actually sticks to the ground and hangs around for a couple of hours. The kids, of course, love the snow and snow in central Texas means almost certain school cancellation, since our city just isn't equipped to handle snow and make the roads safe to drive on.


The snow was no more than an inch deep, but the kids attempted to build a snowman anyway! The girls loved the snow, but the boys wimped out after about 5 minutes in the cold.

Kaydence




Kyndall---not even snow could keep her from travelling at her typical speed.




Kaiya


Ironically, Jayson and Riley left for Denver to play in the snow on the same day that it snowed here in Austin. It was blizzardy and COLD their entire trip, but they had a blast anyway. This was Riley's first experience snowboarding.

The Quints are even more adorable in the snow! It's too hilarious that the girls toughed it out and the boys were the first to cry Uncle.

Great shots! Schools were closed here in Kyle too so our daughter was thrilled to play in the snow. Our son was like your boys and didn't like the cold too much. How fun Riley got to go snowboarding with his dad!

I just saw some of the earlier videos of the quints, and you can tell who is who. :) They haven't changed facial features very much. They are so cute.
