Hannah was eager to play in the snow. We got about a foot of very fluffy, very hard to walk in snow. Friends advised us not to try to walk the 11 blocks to Prospect Park and the really cool sled hills because no one had shoveled their sidewalks yet and it would wear us down to try to get anywhere. So we went to the park near us with a little friend and put snow on the slide and the girls "sledded" down the slide. They made a little snowman, but the snow was so dry that it was hard to make it hold together. Soon we were all very cold and we went home for hot chocolate.
