All Bundled Up

We've had some c-r-a-z-y weather in Colorado over the last week! Last week- end it was super warm and we enjoyed shorts-type weather. Then, later in the week came the word that snow was on the way for our state. Joel & I started crossing our fingers and toes that we might get a day off from work. This happens so rarely that it was a real stretch to hope for one.

So on Wednesday afternoon, Joel and I decided to take a short walk around the park in case we were snowed in. So, we bundled up Anders and headed out!

On Thursday morning we woke up at 5am to see if enough snow had fallen to get us a day off (it has to be really bad in order for them to cancel school). After a few minutes of looking online and hoping & praying we learned we did indeed have a snow day! We jumped around and hooted and hollered. Joel was so excited he couldn't even go back to sleep! By the end of the storm, we had 12+ inches of snow.

In the end, we got a very early start to our spring break--we got Friday off, too. What a blessing. Joel had been working so much the last few months that he really needed the break. So, now we are enjoying an extra-long spring break and the weather has turned back around. We went out for a nice hour long walk today and it was beautiful.

I love living in Colorado. And I love having a week to spend with my 2 boys.

I want to know how much snow he actually shovelled when he was growing up in this home?!?

It was definitely wonderful to have those extra days to add to our Spring Break! I hope you, Joel, and Anders enjoyed the snow together!

Back in the day, there were three of us to split the shoveling...the sooner we got it done the sooner we could go sledding. Now, I'm the lone shoveler.

Wow! Quite a spring storm, I remember having those type of storms in the fall and one in June one year, borke my tree house. Glad you had a few extra days of rest. Enjoy the rest of your break. We were back today, it was so hard to get up early again!
