The Bright Side Of Our Week






Massive amounts of snow,
icy roads and white-out blizzards
have prevented anyone from coming to the 
farm for many winters now! 
AND 
 with 10 inches of snow 2 days
before their arrival,
I was worried they weren't 
going to make it in this time either!!

Luckily the worst had passed, 
some rough icy roads in Iowa
delayed them, but they finally
got here!

Our New York kids
arrived safe and
all got to build a snowman at the farm!!



Little Wyatt had a blast in the snow!





He helped with the snowman



It was a family project...

a snowman greeter!



SUCCESS!!!





Max was a little disappointed
it couldn't actually throw his favorite green pig
for a little game of fetch!!





 Wyatt was off to explore other things...

Max was determined to wait
for the snowman to THROW!




A little venture around the farm... 






You don't get to do
 this in New York City!




Building Snowmen,
winter walks and sharing snow with Kitty...

F - U - N
at Grandma and Grandpa's!!




CHEERY-O!

(note: that was on Monday...
by Thursday evening Mr. Snowman
was a heap of slush!)
It's 71 degrees here today!
Hope you are enjoying some spring time weather
where ever you are!!

Fun, despite the circumstances. I have two wild ones here this weekend. We have been outdoors all afternoon. It makes for some rosy cheeks.
