Fun in the snow

We had a great day yesterday. Despite the cold temps we went for a walk and watched the kids sled. Then we were off to our favorite vintage stores for some browsing and a restaurant for dinner.
* * *
Frosty is the morning;
But the sun is bright,
Flooding all the landscape
With its golden light.
Hark the sounds of laughter
And the voices shrill!
See the happy children
Coasting down the hill.
There are Tom and Charley,
And their sister Nell;
There are John and Willie,
Kate and Isabel - 
Eyes with pleasure beaming,
Cheeks with health aglow;
Bless the merry children,
Trudging through the snow!
Now I hear them shouting,
"Ready! Clear the track!"
Down the slope they're rushing,
Now they're trotting back.
Full of fun and frolic,
Thus they come and go.
Coasting down the hillside,
Trudging through the snow.

  11. Mmmmm, always lovely to look at snow photos. We almost never see it here in Melbourne and we have to travel up towards the mountains, about 120 km away to see a decent snow-covered landscape in winter...
