Yesterday we took our first trip to the park for the new year! It was mostly sunny and 55 degrees and gorgeous! We saw some friends there that had the same idea that we had and they boys enjoyed to sunshine. As you can tell, there was still lots of snow on the ground, but the play area was mostly clear. I am so ready for spring!!
It was so nice out, they didn't even need their coats or boots, but I guess it was just habit to have them on. It was 50 degrees for the high that day. Wonderful!
We are definately ready for spring here! But don't worry Lynnae (her family is coming to visit us for spring break), it is supposed to snow again this weekend.

To entertain the kids, we moved out the furniture from the family room and set up the Geo Trax train with 5 trains and remotes for them to play with. When they got bored with that, they could go down to the playroom and play with the other toys.
We had pizza for dinner, so the kids ate really fast and then went back downstairs to play.
When it was time for cake, we tore apart the cupcakes and dug in.
The blue frosting was a hit, and Landon enjoyed making a big mess with it.

Here is the backyard, beautifully white with about 6 more inches of snow from yesterday's video. Somehow I will have to plow my way through to get some firewood out of the pile by the back fence for our wood stove. Fun!

I took some video of our yard (first back then front) to show how much snow we got this winter. We will probably get a foot of snow by the end of the day. It started this morning and just hasn't stopped. As I said in November, we love snow in November but are ready for spring by February. I am getting to that point already. It is beautiful, but really a pain in everyday life.
