Well this is my son Travis's first time to play in the snow and he LOVED it! He's only 1yr and 5 months old. At first i had him just walk around in the snow all bundled up just so that he can get the feel of things. Then I put him in his sled and he had so much fun! Travis giggled and laughed the whole time I pulled him around in his sled. Then after I pulled him around in the snow on his his sled I realized that I have a slide for him that I knew he would be ready to play on and he absolutly LOVED it! I couldnt keep him off of it. Eventually I took him inside and we stayed in for the night and a day or 2 later we had SO MUCH more snow that his slide and everything else was totally covered! It was SO exciting! This is in Spanaway, WA between Dec. 15th and the 18th.
