Winter in Victoria

It's official. We brought winter with us. The snowman above was built last Sunday. He has now keeled over. There is still lots of snow and slush, but the temperature seems to be climbing back up to Victoria norms, and I think our proper winter will not last much longer. We certainly have made the most of it though. Monday the kids and I trekked through Beacon Hill Park. It was all drooping with snow and quite magical. We passed a lady with a bundle buggy full of bird seed that she had been distributing in clumps along the path, so we kept interrupting large crowds of feasting ducks. When we finally made it up the hill the view was spectacular.

Sledding with an ocean backdrop:

I am presently waiting for two girls to fall asleep so that Saint Nick can make an appearance.
I hope you all have a wonderful day, and a peaceful holiday. We'll be thinking of you! I'll be back in the New Year (I will probably make a resolution about becoming a more consistent blogger). Thanks for reading.

Merry Christmas!
