Outdoor Play Today

Today topped out at 42 degrees at our home and we are in for about a week of this weather. It's really going to melt some of the snow. I am sure there are some who would want my head for saying this, but I hope after this warm spell we get back to the 20's and some snow for a week. This mama still has some winter sports she wants to do and do more of.

Anyways, we went sledding late this morning and them went down the park to play. We had a lot of fun. The snowsuits were necessary to keep up dry, but boy did we sweat in them.

After naptime we had some friends come over to play in our driveway with us. We have such a nice long cul-de-sac driveway that stays plowed. So, with the warms temps, sun being out, good plowing and asn asphalt driveway, we had a large area to play outside with bike and soccer balls. And Henry reminded me that daddy had hung two of the swings in the garage, so the kids enjoyed being able to do more swinging (did some this am too!) After almost an hour outside this afternoon, we went inside to play and then had supper together and some more play. The daddies were both ice fishing with each other all day. Daddy caught a Northern that he brought home and he fried up tonight and we all had some. It was good. I hadn't had fried fish in quite some time.
