Balmy weather

Its been in the mid 40s this week! And I was ecstatic to take the kids out to play in the snow yesterday. I don't mind the snow we've been getting if it gets warm enough to really have fun in it. So, we got suited up and out we went. We threw snow balls (Pow! says Alex), played hide and seek behind the big mounds, and even sledded down the hill in the courtyard! I had a good run even with Katrina on board with me. Takes me back...

Oh the days when me and my friend Muffie would spend the extra 5 minutes getting our snow suits on before heading out for recess while our friends headed out with just coats. We had less time, but made the most of what we had. I can still picture us doing somersaults in the soccer field and generally enjoying the snow. I can also remember sledding down the hill by her house. I can't remember if we sledded in the cemetary accross the street from her house...I know she and her brother often did.

What I've determined is that I really need my own snow pants. Its harder to get into the snow and craziness when you are wet so quickly. I don't snowboard or ski, but I need to go to SNIAGRAB and get me a snowsuit. Anyone know when SNIAGRAB is?

Great idea! I do believe it's labor day weekend :~)

It does start Labor Day weekend and it goes for a month or so. HOWEVER, you can hit some really good sales this time of year at the stores because they are trying to clear the way for their spring stuff! Good luck! Sounds like you had a lot of fun!!
