A 5 Year Old’s First Snow

You really don’t see much of it when you live in the Los Angeles area, so the little dude’s priority when he made his way to see Gigi and Grand Dude in the frozen tundra of the Midwest was “I want snow.”

He got his wish.

Well, it did take a little while. At first, there was only a little snow but, while it was falling, he did get to have some fun with Gigi and his daddy.

But, since that snow didn’t stick around, he then got to feed some ducks.

And then Grand Dude showed him how to draw Mickey Mouse.

And he did get to go with daddy and see the radio station where Gigi and Grand Dude sometimes work.

And Gigi showed him how to roast weenies over a “campfire.”




It really snowed!!

And he got to run around and run around and run around … and then run around some more in fresh snow.

And, thanks to Gigi, who stayed outside in the cold with him, he got to play and play and play IN SNOW!

He really, really, wanted to take some with him back to Los Angeles. Sadly, he found out that he couldn’t. However, we end the week with reasonable expectations that memories of the little dude’s first snow, hopefully, accompanied by memories of a Christmas/New Year’s week with Gigi and Grand Dude will be making the trip and staying with him for a long time.

That’s our wish.

We do know that he promised us he’d be back for more.

We hope that happens soon.

And, we hope that the little dude a/k/a Joseph Gibson Crispen and his daddy (Patrick Crispen) and his mommy (Christine Crispen) Stay safe.

We wish the same for you,

Steve & Johnnie
