A winter wonderland spread in our backyard two days ago, inviting the kids to step into a snowy adventure. The ground was coated with thick, untouched snow, creating the perfect playground for them.
Eagerly, they bundled up in their warmest gear and headed outside, their excitement palpable.
For about an hour, they were engrossed in a flurry of activities – building snowmen, making snow angels, and engaging in playful snowball fights. As the excitement of the hour waned, fatigue set in. My daughter, Kiran, worn out from the rousing fun, found a cosy spot and surrendered to a quiet nap in the winter landscape.
The week brought more snow, and Bhavna, seizing the opportunity, took the kids out for a fun sledging adventure in our backyard. Kiran, typically hesitant with new activities, embraced sledging with surprising enthusiasm. Seeing her laughing and enjoying the snow was more satisfying than ever. On the other hand, Shaan lived up to his reputation as Mr. Frost, showing his usual calm composure and skill in navigating the snowy slopes. Their delightful screams and laughter filled the air, creating a perfect, memorable winter day for the family.
We spent the morning diligently clearing snow from the driveway and stairs, a chore made lighter by the kids' laughter. We enjoyed the winter wonderland around us. They immersed themselves in the pleasures of the snow, creating snowmen with carrot noses and button eyes, sprawling to create snow angels, and cramming handfuls of snow into perfect snowballs. Shaan and I joined forces, our hands working quickly to shape our arsenal of snowballs. Gleefully, we launched a devilish ambush on everyone else. However, Kiran, not quite sharing our enthusiasm for the snowball fight, vented her displeasure at being targeted.
