a snowy escape

Thanks to the flu and other yucky sickness we have been pretty much stuck in our house since Friday night.  So even though the temperatures outside reached 12-below-ridiculous today, we HAD to go out and see the snow. 

It was really more like ice, of course.  Much to KJ's crummy-feeling-chagrin, it couldn't even be molded into a proper snowball to throw at his Daddy.  But the boys were so excited to have snow and get to go outside that they didn't even care. 
I wanted to tell those boys that they missed their once-in-a-lifetime chance at gobs of snow last year (remember how much they hated it?), but refrained...because well, I'm just a good mom like that (or maybe its the flu).

We took pictures,

walked down to the park,

 and tried exactly once to slide a child across the sidewalk on top of the same sled RRL and I enjoyed last year.

Then we all remembered that we HATED freezing wind in our faces
way more than we hated being stuck inside and went home.


We were out for about 20 minutes, which was just enough to get the ants-out-of-our-pants and enjoy our evening in our warm house together.

Considering the fact that Cbug didn't hide in the sandbox this year, and actually loved every minute...

And KJ declared "I love snow.  Snow is made by the ONE TRUE GOD,"  

 I'd say it was a way more successful outing for our boys than their snowcapades from 2010

We may have to work on baby sister, though.

Hope you enjoyed today with your family!
I happen to think mine is the very best one to be snuggled up inside with.
