We had a bit of a heatwave on Friday. It almost reached 70 Degrees, so after I finished work for the day, I decided to try and take the kids to the park. Once we arrived we saw that there was still a lot of ice and snow on the playground and it was pretty wet and sloppy. Sarah would not go on anything because she did not want to get "dirty". After 10 minutes of walking around trying to find something that was not wet or dirty or near ice, I asked if she just wanted to come home and ride her bike and she quickly said, "Yes, let's go home".
Only minutes after getting out the bikes and scooters, it started to rain!
This should have been a sign that nothing was going to go as planned this weekend.
We had 50-60MPH winds roll in later Friday night. As a result, we lost power on Saturday afternoon and it did not come back until late Saturday night. Needless to say, I got nothing done because everything I had to do, needed power! It set me back, but it was kind of nice to be "unplugged". It was fun to hang out as a family in front of the fireplace. We had plenty of candles lit and a few flashlights. The girls had a ball playing with the flashlights. We pretended they were on stage and waived the flashlights around like stobe lights. We have never heard Reagan laugh so hard. She loved it and had us doing it over and over again for her. Sarah introduced Reagan to the "crowd" and it was the cutest thing ever.... "This is my sister, her name is Reagan and she was born in China. She loves to eat Chinese food and she is just learning to walk" She went on and on, and Pat and I were smiling ear to ear as we listened to her talk about her sis! I wish it would have been light enough for me to video it.... I tried, but you couldn't see them:(
I said I needed some down time this weekend and I guess I got it......I am more than a little behind with emails, blogs, etc.... but I will catch up, I always do!
Unfortunately I have to work today.... I could have used one more day with the family. So here I sit drinking my coffee, getting ready to start the day and guess what I am looking at outside my window? Three inches of snow!! 70 Degrees on Friday and snow on Monday..... CRAZY weather.
I knew Spring was not here to stay, we just got a little taste of it on Friday to break up this long winter. I am pretty sure that this is not the last of the white fluffy stuff for the season. March usually brings us at least one big snow storm!
Last but not least, Nick picked the two winners of the Photography Class Giveaway on Saturday morning! CONGRATULATIONS to April and Kam! You are the lucky winners!
