I'll be sharing our ice skating fun soon but first let's have a look at our morning of fun in the snow...
Every year the annual Snow? In Berkeley? festival is held in North Berkeley's Gourmet Ghetto neighborhood. A small area is covered in man-made snow and local kids go crazy making snowmen and throwing snowballs at each other. The festival also boasts a small market of local goods, pony rides, face painting and balloons, plus the Snow Queen on hand to meet kids and hear their holiday wishes.
That didn't stop Ava and Lola from having fun though!
The girls made snowballs to throw at each other. No, scrap that... they made snowballs to throw at ME! Why am I always their target?
Mathilde fell asleep on our walk to the "snow" so she missed out on a lot of the fun. I'm not sure she would've enjoyed it too much anyway. After she woke from her nap I sat her in the snow but she didn't look too impressed! I guess it was too cold and wet for her.
After all the fun in the snow the girls stopped by to visit the Snow Queen and tell her their wishes. Just like in their letters to Santa both Ava and Lola made wishes for a puppy. Or puppies. They want one each!
We left the snow pretty much drenched through to our skin and with rain boots full of water, but it was worth it. The girls had such a fun time.
Stay tuned for part two of our day of wintry fun...
