We had one day of snow recently. It came and went in one day but the kids were so excited and happy that they kept buggin me to go play in it. We don't have full on winter gear so I just layered and then knew they would come in when they got real wet. So much laundry in so little time. For every crazy fun day kids have in the snow or at Disneyland they just don't know how much energy it takes for the mom to facilitate that.
