Peppermint Mocha

Baby it’s cold outside! We had a little snow last night so I met up with a friend and her two kiddos to go sledding today. Look at his face. Pure joy!

Sledding MellowMomma

It was pretty fun! Mostly…until the end when my two kids started crying, and begging to be picked up. I asked them to carry me because I was too tired to walk, but that didn’t go over well. That’s when I was secretly cursing myself for not bringing the stroller. It usually pays off to be over prepared, but unfortunately I was a bit underprepared today. Thankfully my oldest was happy sitting on my friend’s stroller and I could carry my little one home. Even though the fun sledding ended with crying, I still feel lucky to have these moments with my kids. It is also nice to get out of the house, even in the snow. What is your favorite thing to do when it’s snowing outside? After a day of sledding, I love to snuggle by the fire and read. Well, I would like to read, but the reality is two kids jumping on me as we “snuggle”. I did however get to enjoy this delicious peppermint mocha!
