Wednesday Weekend Windup
Finally, we have plenty of snow to play in! Of course, I doubt it will last the weekend. But, my daughter has been having fun building a snow fort. Also, my Australian Shepherd has been having fun hopping around in it--it is actually pretty funny to see!
Looking at the calendar, I cannot believe that it is March! I guess that they snow makes it feel like it should be January or February. We found a lot of fun stuff to do this weekend including some maple fests.
