Snow Days!

This has been quite the winter!  And this week proved that it's not over yet.  On Sunday night we got hit with freezing rain, sleet, and snow ...several inches of it!  We've been wanting a really good snow all winter long and just when we were starting to get in the mood for spring ...it came.  ha!  So we have just been enjoying it as much as we can.  

Early in February we had some winter-y weather, but it was during that extremely busy week of travel for our family and the kiddos didn't get to enjoy it at all (except from the car window).  So since they haven't taken a single snow day this year (our local public schools have been out for over 2 weeks all together now!), I thought it was high time!  We took off Monday, partly to celebrate Vince's birthday and partly to enjoy playing outside.  Then we took off Tuesday, partly to go sledding on our local golf course and partly to finish celebrating Vince's birthday with dinner at his restaurant of choice: P.F. Chang's.  It was some good family time!  

Everything is still very white outside and all but the main roads are still covered in snow and ice, but this weekend promises to be almost 60F so it won't last long.  We'll probably get in a little more snow play before it's all over:)

I'm just happy that I live where I get to experience all four seasons!

Nice to visit you. I found you through the launch group page.

It has been quite a winter. We've enjoyed our ice/snow days too. :)
