With all the weather reports saying that we were going to get around 18 inches of snow over the weekend we were prepared for a couple of days of not going anywhere. On Saturday morning the snow was pretty light and we were all a little skeptical that we were going to get any real accumulation that would stick to the ground. That afternoon the REAL storm blew in with thick snow that piled on super fast. It continued to snow through the night and by Sunday morning we had accumulated about 10 inches of snow. Needless to say, church was canceled. The kids were happy to go out and play in the snow even though the temperatures were pretty cold. I managed to go out for only 10 minutes before I wanted to get warm. The kids had fun throwing snowballs, jumping on the snowy trampoline, building snow forts, and being pulled by Andrew in Peter's super awesome tube sled. The kids even got an extra day of playing in the snow when school got canceled on Monday. The boys shoveled the driveway and the walkway which was great. It was a long weekend of bad weather but a lot of fun outdoors in the snow.
