We had the first snow of the season on Friday morning. When it ended we had about an inch on the ground, but it still was a lot of fun to be out and play in it for a while. For Nelson, it is his first time playing in the snow, and he really loves it just like we all do. The two of us played together for a while, including some chase games.
The colored leaves in the snow are so pretty. The ones on the trees also look great with a touch of snow on them.
I think it is safe to say that Mom’s flowers on the deck are pretty much dead after the snow. They have been on the way out for a while, but they are real goners now. Still they are pretty to look at in the snow.
Back to me and Nelson having some snow fun. Nelson loves finding sticks, and I guess racing in the snow with a stick is even more fun than just in the grass.
He is good at amusing himself by tossing his stick, really a twig, in the air and trying to catch it. Someone needs to remind him that we are all terrible at catching things.
Running around seems to be Nelson’s favorite activity, though. It doesn’t matter if he is running after someone, being chased, or just running around by himself.
I enjoy being chased, and Nelson is quite happy to chase after me. He is fast, so I have to watch out or he will capture me!
Sometimes we stop for a break, but Nelson wants to keep playing. He starts jumping around, trying to get me to move so he can chase me some more.
I have to say, he has some fancy footwork going on. Snow does not slow this young man down at all!
Nelson takes off again at full speed. He is a very long guy, especially when he stretches himself out like he is when he runs.
Hope you enjoyed our few shots of the first snow of the season. We are all ready for winter and have our paws crossed for lots of cold and a ton of snow over a long winter.
