So here we are. The end of February, 60 degrees & sunny today. Is it really still winter? In Philadelphia, not so much.
This past weekend we got our fill of winter-wonderland-ness up in the Adirondacks (oh man, it just took me forever to spell that correctly). Lena was super excited to go and all week talked about the "veeeken" (ie: weekend) when we'd go play in the "shnow". We finally loaded up the car late Friday and began the 6 hour trip. Lena woke up when we stopped for gas and immediately asked "veeeken???!!" She did this same thing 2 other times during the trek. When we finally got there at 12:30am, set up the pack&play and woke her up to put her in bed she took one look around and happily sighed "veeken." Yes, it was a great weekend. Here are some pics & videos.
We built a snowman who Lena named "ho ho" and in the morning when we looked out the window he was still there. (see the closeup on the right)
We also took everyone for a walk & some sledding accross the street. Some of us enjoyed the snowy experience more than others...
Then Lena took her first trip down the hill, with what seemed to be mixed feelings...
It was 3 days of snowy fun... and we needed it for sure. All of us, especially Mike, have been work work working on the house for months now. It was nice to get away and relax. Here are 2 shots of 2 of the rooms in the new house! Our living room (mostly a shot of the carpet, but oh well) and the kitchen/mudroom. yay! we have a functional downstairs! yay!
And that's all for now!
