We got in some good sledding time using the path Bob made and the sled trail Jaide and I made by repeated sledding. It was incredibly fun. It started on top of a big snow pile in the neighboring parking lot and ended close to our back yard. It went fast, did side to sides, and even hopped up a bit.
We did get reluctant Kiree to go down a couple of times, but her favorite part of sledding/playing in the snow was always going inside and drinking hot cocoa.
As things started warming up and melting (and then refreezing), many big icesicles were made and we tried to knock some of that stuff down off the roof and elsewhere.
When the weather was improving, we decided to party. Bob had invited some people over to play games and I was finally going to have my multi-postponed valentines party for the little ones, so we wanted to make sure there would be some kind of parking available. We also wanted to shovel out the area where the school bus stops, so it was win-win. And our good friend brought over their snowblower which really, really helped. The kids did finally go back to school on the 17th and had delayed days all that week.
I really should have taken a picture during the party. It is hard to believe we had 39 people here not too long before I took these photos. A few of them were babies and many were little kids, but it was a lot! I think a lot of people needed to party. You may notice I
