Denver- Day 1

After we bundled up Madison, she ventured out in the snow for the first time. There was beautiful powder everywhere you looked!
Shoveling the driveway.
And then a face plant in the snow! She could hardly move with all the layers, and ended up covered in snow- she's not a fan of the cold we found out :)
Then Daddy decided to teach her how to stomp on the snow.
After the snow experience, we took a trip to downtown Denver. Uncle JJ (Jesse's brother) and Aunt Danielle had fun walking her around.
At The Wizard's Chest picking out a few games for the week.
Then we made a stop at Starbucks (which was covered in snow- too weird!)
My snow bunny
Strategy faces on- game time!
More snow play!

You couldn't tell where the street ended and the sidewalk began!
Snowball fights!

Maddie pulled an ice sickle off from the bottom of a car and started chewing on it! Becoming acclimated in one day :)
The creating of our snowman.
Our handsome snowman (I might add that Uncle Mike really rescued our poor attempts at making a snowman).
Our family
Danielle and JJ
Uncle Mike and Aunt Di were the most gracious hosts the whole week!
That night (Christmas Eve) Jesse and Danielle put out the luminarias.

Very cute pictures! I love the one of Maddie with a snow ball being thrown at her. So cute! You guys look great in the snow. Maybe you should think about moving to Phoenix. :)
