I know that I posted about how spring was â€œjust around the cornerâ€ last week and then a bunch of you had ice and snow (over a foot in northern lower Michigan). Well, we haven't had a significant snowfall in southwest Michigan since before Christmas. This morning I awoke to a skiff of snow that was just enough to get our 18 month old excited. So, wouldn't you know it, we were outside playing before 9 o'clock this morning. We threw snowballs at our shed, filled up the bird feeder, and made about a dozen trips around our backyard with me pulling his sled. He was pretty cold with rosy cheeks and nose, but he still did not want to come inside. I bribed him with a chance to watch a video and promises of going out again later.
We just had to get out and enjoy what could be our last bit of significant snow until next winter. I warmed up with a nice steaming mug of cocoa while he drank his milk. It sure was nice to be outside, even if it isn't spring yet. :)
