The Polar Bear Club

For days the weather has been forecasting snow for us West Coasters and every morning we would wake up with great anticipation of snowmen, and snow forts and hot chocolate. But we would be sorely dissapointed.
So when we woke up the other morning to a good 4 inches and counting the kids could barely wait to get outside. While the three older kids were busy scarfing down their breakfasts and jamming their bodies into their snow clothes I noticed that one pajama clad kid was missing.

And then I saw a streak of red run by the big bay window in our family room and realized that Gabe just couldn't wait for all those snow clothes. He had run outside barefoot and wearing only his pajama bottoms.

Brrrr!

Love it, his expression says it all! If we could just bottle that enthusiasm and wild abandon! I remember when I would jump in the ocean in November- not anymore!

Wow how funny that he was so excited, he couldn't be bothered with clothes. :)

Ooooh, gutsy kid!
When we lived in the great white north I was known to truck to the mailbox (300 feet away) in bare feet but, I always had my shirt on! LOL
