March started out with a major snowstorm, and although I'm getting spring fever, the snow, when it sits on shrubbery sure looks beautiful. All of this snow has definitely melted, and in all honesty I'm glad. I can now be able to take Noah to the park so that he can play on dry land without freezing his little tush off. Temperatures should be in the 50's throughout this week, and we are hoping that they are here to stay.
Here are a few photos of my neighborhood, and outside of our home. We received about eight inches of snow last week, and it wasn't too bad. Being cooped up in the house with no school for two days can get a bit too much, especially when your kids love school, but luckily the kids kept themselves busy with playing music, drawing, and attempting to build a snow cave which turned out to be a bit of flop (sorry, no pictures.) They attempted to build it while the snow was coming down! Crazy kids!
Here's hoping that we have seen the last of a major snowstorm. I don't want to whine, but when you are in a city where everything is spread out, and public transportation isn't the greatest (it takes you about an hour by bus to hit the closest Target, and mall when it only takes us five minutes in a car!) it can be quite a challenge, but none the less we are surviving, and are grateful for all that nature brings.
And for smiles like this that remind me that life is good, that snowstorms last for a season, and that trials come and go, and usually end with something better!
