We were only in Iowa for just over a day but when Anni saw the snow it was a must to go sledding! Plus, we sorta felt like the snow owed us some fun after all the chaos it wrought on us during our journey Iowa-bound. Can I just say I love this first photo of the watoto all dressed up! Right before it was taken Anni was whining “mama, I’m so hooooottttt in this” I guess that was the best smile for the camera she could muster under such extreme duress. Plus, with her cousin borrowed snow gear Evy looked like a boy. Too cute!
Snow is awesome
And driveway sledding is pretty fabulous too! Also, can I say that when an Iowans drove by and had to wait for us to clear off the road they smiled and waved (in Chicago I am pretty sure we would get flipped off and yelled at for street sledding). We decided to forgive Iowa for the treacherous road trip!

playing in the snow with cousins was a blast
But the cold was not appreciated by all. And is it wrong that I love this photo? Don’t worry Miss Evy Imani, sometimes winter makes me cry too.
