That was the scream I woke up to this morning at 7 am. "Mommy, mommy, can we go out and play in the snow?" As I rolled over and looked at the clock, I smiled to myself as I remembered how happy I used to be when I saw snow on the ground in the morning.

The girls let my husband and I sleep for another hour before it was time to make them breakfast. Although it was only 1/2 inch of snow, we were thrilled to see it. In NJ, we usually have one or two good snow storms each winter but since last winter was so warm and we really have not had much at all this winter, except for a few inches here and there, we have been waiting for any amount of snow to fall from the sky.

We bundled up and went out into the 25 degree weather and pulled the girls on the toboggan down the street and back up. My husband and I took turns and since they wanted to "Go fast," it was a bit of a workout. (Not sure if "sled pulling" is on the SP cardio list, but it should be!) It was so nice to be outside again. It has been so cold up here that I have not been able to take the girls outside everyday like I usually do. We had fun outside for about 45 minutes. I got alot of steps in on my Fitbit One and now everyone is resting and napping this afternoon.

Life is good!

    Great to see you take advantage of the snow. We are in PA and despite only getting 1 inch our son was all about shoveling even though most of of it was gone from the driveway by the time we got out there. Still running around with him for about 30 minutes was good bonding.

    My wife and I have been debating the FitBit.

    Stay active and enjoy!
