Today is our wedding anniversary. Many couples would go somewhere warm and romantic without the “kids” to celebrate. But what did we do??? Yesterday we drove north to New Hampshire so that Aiden could see snow for the first time. The Cape has not had any snow so far this winter and as usual New Hampshire has had several storms. Timing is everything and as we crossed into NH we drove into a snowstorm. This left several inches of fresh snow on the ground and it turns out Aiden LOVES the snow.
We arrived in Lincoln at dusk and took the dogs right out to see Aiden’s reaction to the snow.
Hey, this white “sand” is cold and wet!
Today the sun came out and it was a beautiful, cold winter wonderland. We drove across the Kancamagus Highway (a 34 mile scenic highway that stretches from Lincoln to Conway) to North Conway where we took the boys on a train ride! They were both very well-behaved. They socialized with people on the platform, climbed the steps onto the train without much fuss and let loads of kids pat them while we were waiting for the train to depart. They were fine with the movement of the train, the noises of the wheels on the tracks and the whistles etc.

After the train ride we took the dogs to a large school field where it was safe to let Aiden off leash to run and play in the snow. He had a blast.
