Pass the sunscreen

Who needs Mexico when you can get buried in the white 'sands' of Minnesota.

After running a few errands this morning, the kids couldn't wait to play in all the snow. I don't think the kids have seen this much snow at one time before. Winter has been pretty mild in the last eight years. Well, the playing didn't last long. A few trips up the snow mountain, and one snow burial each was all they needed before fingers and cheeks started to tingle. The sun was bright but not warm. The temperature was 20 something, but the wind made it feel like zero something. So we left the 'beach' and thawed out at Subway. We got a few books at the Library next door, and went home to read. The kids must have been tired because when we got home, they actually did read their books. I think the rest of the afternoon will be pretty mild. The only thing left on our to do list, is to hide our weekend messes from Lady Di. Does anybody know how to get grape jelly off the ceiling?

I love the picture! Over at my house its 80 and sunny. The birds are chirping, and we've been out sitting on the deck and swimming in the pool.....and then I woke up.

Only a few more weeks....then I bet summer will be here. Don't you???
