Second Snowing of 2011

On Tuesday we were iced in. The roads were "treacherous." The temps stayed well below freezing and everything was closed......for 4 days! On the fourth day we were surprised with another 6 inches of snow on top of the ice. It was nice to have some extended family time and it wasn't too bad, but I think we are kinda done with the cold.  And, we need actual snow gear.  Of course as soon as I buy it, it won't snow for several years.  We also realized that we need to wait a few more years until we consider going snow skiing or at least go during Spring Break when it's warmer.

We did get Cavett's room painted.

 The favorite pasttime is eating the snow.
 We bought a new inner tube for this snow fall.

 But the inner tube was quickly popped. 
 Our backyard pet nusance showed his hippipty-hop foot prints.
 The icicles were massive and some on the pool are still lingering 3 days after the thaw. 
 By far, the highlight of the week was making snow ice cream. 
It just doesn't get any better!

We also had some bunny prints...the kids enjoyed following them to see where they led! I hear ya on the snow gear. We thought about bringing the snow gear back with us from NJ, but figured as sure as we did and we wouldn't get anything...WRONG. However, if my in-laws sent it now, we wouldn't get anything like you said! LOL.

LOVE the paint job in his room. So fun.
