Spontaneous Sunday Snow Trip

One of the good things about living in Hobart in the winter is you can take a spontaneous trip to the snow.

Within 30 minutes of leaving the house we were trudging about on the top of Mt Wellington!

We timed our arrival perfectly - no queues up the mountain, no waiting for parking, not too many people at the top, space to enjoy the snow and the views.  I think it was partly because we left home reasonably early and because it was the second weekend with snow on the mountain so the hoards had visited last weekend!

Trev had the forethought to throw the boogie board into the car before heading off and the kids enjoyed scooting around with their dad.

There has also been a lot of bike riding this weekend after finding training wheels and properly fitting helmets for both the kids.  Needless to say there have been early nights and sound sleep from our little ones this weekend!

I hope there's still a bit of snow next weekend! We took the bikes out today too, Ina on her new green machine on the track from the nursery to C. Bay.

Looks beautiful Ange, but oh so cold!

Incidentally, bike riding also featured highly this weekend for us too! J rode with the girls to the Botanical Gardens on Saturday and then many laps by Miss Z up and down the footpath on Sunday. A group ride one day could be fun!
