Winter Is For Kids!

Does anyone know how to enjoy winter more than children do? I don't think so. Perhaps those who are still young at heart could argue the point but they'd have be pretty persuasive to convince me!

I remember having loads of fun playing in the snow with my friends when I was a kid. I also remember fingers and toes so cold they hurt even after I came in from the cold!

The pictures above are some of my very favorites of my brothers when they were kids. Oh to have the time to frolic in the snow, make snow angels, ride sleds, and build snowmen and igloos! The top photo on the page was taken before I was born when my parents still lived in Detroit. I'm pretty sure it was taken in the backyard of their home. The bottom photo was taken in our backyard in Dearborn. I must have been 2 or 3 years old at the time. I have the vaguest recollection of that igloo.

It's been a long time since I've frolicked in the snow. These days my idea of winter fun is heading out to a local park to photograph winter in all its glory. That's enough exposure to the cold for me!

Scrapbook kit used was, "Knocking on Winter's Door" a collab it by JenU and Phuong.
