There’s nothing like the FIRST time and this week, my boys got to experience snow…for the very FIRST time! Both of my boys were born in Miami-Dade, Hialeah, to be specific. And although there are young, they have never known anything below 70 degrees until we moved to Hampton Roads, Virginia. So, when the temperatures dropped this week and a “rare” snow sprinkled the area, my boys got their first taste of what people in news always refer to as “the white stuff.”
In preparation for the occasion, I went out to find them the appropriate footwear for the elements and since most of the fashion in the stores now is for spring, I came up on some snow shoes for Isaiah at Ross and rain boots at Wal-Mart for Raef. We layered them up in 2 layers of pants and long sleeve tops and stuffed them into their down coats with beanies and gloves.
