Wednesday Weekend Windup {When will it be Spring?}

Wow! The Vortex Returns! My daughter had a pair of gloves that she quite literally tore to shreds while constructing snow forts with her friends {actually, a school wide event}. The snow gods must have been watching us because she received the new pair I ordered while she was off of school the last couple of days. Phew! I sent her off to school with a new pair just in time for the new vortex!

With my daughter having yet another three day week, I am so confused on what day it is! The weekend is almost here--and she just went back to school. Here are some ideas for fun this weekend. Shhhh...I think that we actually have two digit temperatures this weekend!
