Surprise Weather!

It snows in Tucson once a year. It has snowed once for the last several years. It usually doesn't stick, but it does snow!

This morning, we woke up to a wonderful winter wonderland! The mountains were breathtaking.

Then Sariah woke up and wanted to play! We had about 20 minutes until we needed to leave for church, so I let her play for just a few minutes. Personally, I think it was a cruel trick of nature to snow on a Sunday morning, when we have to be at church at 8:30! She refused to put clothes on. Instead, she was wearing this. I warned her, but she needed to learn for herself that it was cold. She stayed out for 2 1/2 minutes!
When we got home, the snow was pretty much gone. There was still a small pile up at the park with just enough snow to construct a snowman. Jared and Sariah quickly shed their Sunday attire, dressed in warm clothes, and headed out to play before the snow was just a memory. They came back with cold hands, pink cheeks, and huge smiles on their faces. What a wonderful treat!
