The first flurry of the season doesn't always inspire one to get out there and conquer it with a bike ride. You can't tell in the photos, but the wet snow was flying sideways and making the bike to school look mighty yucky.
But, we live in Edmonton. It snows here for most of the year. And life goes on.
We dug out a bunch of layers, including Dexter's home-knit sweater from my mom.
And baby Alice in a hand-me-down fuzzy bear suit.
The kids were cozy inside the trailer - I brought an extra blanket for baby Alice. I did well on all accounts with my coat, gloves, scarf, and insulated rain boots. Though, I forgot about what a difference a bit of a brim on your helmet makes. My black helmet manages to just keep rain and sun off my eyes. The polka-dot helmet does no such thing. My kids arrived safe and warm at the school, but it looked like I had been crying my eyes out on account of all the snow flying sideways into my face.
Major league smudged eyeliner and runny mascara. So scary.
