New York City Snow Day
My best friend, Violet, and I both got snowshoes for the holidays. I was so envious of Violet, because she got to go to Winter Wonderland Camp- and I got stuck in New York City with absolutely no snow. There was snow in December, but I was still performing in the Nutcracker so I didn't have time to play.
Then, I found out we were having a huge snowstorm! It was so big that the libraries closed and the trains weren't running at full capacity. I grabbed my snowshoes and ran down the stairs to try them out.
It was so much fun walking around with my snowshoes, but it was really tiring. I walked all around the little park near my house, until it started to snow really hard. The wind was blowing and my cheeks started to sting, so I came inside.
I put on my special snow day pajamas and pulled out the Cheburashka puzzle I got for New Year. I made hot cocoa all by myself with the microwave, and settled down to do the puzzle. What a nice, cozy end to an adventurous day!
P.S. Did it snow where you are? What do you like to do during snowstorms- go out and play, or stay in?
