Monday we got a blizzard. It snowed all day and by the next morning we had a good foot of snow. The girls were thrilled. How exciting to have a real snow blizzard!
After having a nice snow-free backyard to play in for a few weeks, I wasn't jumping up and down, but it was nice to be able to get out the snow gear and sleds one more time.
As much as the girls wanted to sled on Tuesday, there was just too much snow for it to work. we kept getting stuck in the drifts. And it was cold and windy.
Dunkin' Donuts to the rescue!
We did manage to get out in the nicer weather towards the end of the week when the snow had compacted some. There were plenty of icicles for eating which both girls loved.
And on Friday we even made it out sledding in the warm weather. BUT taking two kids over to the golf course and lugging one two year old up the hill while 8 months pregnant was just enough that I didn't even bother to get out the camera. Poor LittleL.G. was intimidated by the big kids and MiniM.E. loved it, but she got tired of climbing the hill pretty quickly. Again, food to the rescue- over to Stewart's for $1 St. Patty's Day ice cream!
MiniM.E. and I got one more exciting winter activity in which was (possibly?) more fun since there was snow- a winter owl prowl on snowshoes! We heard a spiel about owls and hiked in the woods on snowshoes for about an hour listening for them. Of course, there were none to be heard... but it was an adventure!
And now I can officially say I am ready for spring and done with snow. Bring on the nice weather!
