Last Sunday I went on my first trip to the snow with the kids at Mount Donna Buang. Can I confess something? I have never been to the snow before. When I tell others this, it horrifies them, I get the NEVER look. I have never been to the snow before I think mainly because my parents never took me. There opinion was it was too cold & too expensive. So I guess hearing that as a kid those beliefs have kind of stuck. I was asked to go by one of the awesome parents at school, I said I had always wanted to go but have never been. Again I got the NEVER look. I told her Hudson had asked several times to go but we hadn't because we didn't own any snow gear. I was also told repeatedly it was over the top expensive at the mountains so I had just never got around to taking him. Well my friend went on to tell me where she goes is free, & it wasn't like a typical ski mountain, it didn't have chair lifts, it was a family friendly hangout with small hills & runs perfect to toboggan down on. I was in, & committed with a big yes. Luckily I have other fantastic friends who go to the snow, so calling on some favours I managed to borrow clothes for everyone. All we really needed was shoes so we just wore gumboots. I felt really so grateful & super excited about going, especially assuming all of the fun I knew the kids were going to have. I wanted to share my super special day with my favourite photos. Just before we reached the mountain I took a happy snap of the kids, their faces say everything. YAY lets get this snow fun on. Charlotte had this obsession with eating the snow. After a couple of hours tobogganing Hudson ventured a little towards the forrest. The scenery was magical, I almost felt like I was in a twilight movie, without hunky Edward. The beautiful green leaves, dark brown tree trunks, looked incredible against the snow. It was lovely here just over ankle deep. I can tell you though my toes were dry but absolutely freezing. The beauty of the moss on the rocks under the snow was so captivating I loved it. Here we are the 3 of us. I struggle with the perfect selfie shot, but I am pretty sure you can see how happy we were on out first trip. It was such a success we are hoping to return this weekend with our neighbours. If you consider yourself a bit of a snow bunny & have some snow tips for me, please tell me everything. Hudson loved it so much I can see it becoming a regular family activity.
