Frick! That snow is deep!

With the gorgeous sun-shiny weather today, I thought it high time to take the boys on a run in the park behind the house. It has been a while since they have been out tearing things up because of the biting cold. Turns out, that even though the weather is warm, that snow is REALLY deep! And the blasting winds have made a thick hard crusty layer on top. Not conducive with stubby and the drunk (ie. Romeo and Gio).

After just a couple of throws, the boys were getting frustrated. And the strong wind was making my attempts at throwing the flying squirrel appear quite pathetic. So we moved back to the back yard where the fence has stopped the wind from hardening the snow crust too much.

Sure, not as much room to run, but the snow is much more inviting to belly flops!

Snow, we sure wish Dad would head back so we could see some more.

We love the pictures.

Keep warm,
