I'm usually so patient with Winter. I'm willing to put up with the never ending months of cold because I have ways to enjoy winter (snowboarding/skiing), or we get enough chinooks to make up for the cold, or we don't get too much snow. But not this year. This year I have had it! We had enough Chinooks to please me, we even went skiing a TON. But it's the snow that got to me this year. By the time March rolled around I was DONE shoveling. I literally never want to shovel my driveway again. I have a problem and I'll admit it. I hate a snow covered driveway. I will get out there and shovel multiple times on snowy days, because nothing is worse than someone driving on fresh light snow. It packs it down and makes it so much harder to shovel; it's just a little pet peeve of mine. Well, I have spent way too many hours shoveling this year and I am done! Done done done!
Anyway, April so far has been pretty enjoyable. The weather was a month late....basically typical March weather. But March was brutal and not very kind to spring. So finally last week we had a beautiful day. The girls got their bikes out, and rode up and down the street. The wore spring jackets, rain boots due to the melting snow, and they ate lots and lots of old dirty snow! yum. I pulled out my camera and took a few pictures of Paige...and way more of Cait (only because Paige went to the park with a friend). I'm looking forward to spring actually arriving. Maybe having no snow in the background. And I really can't wait until there are leaves on the trees and we can legitimately enjoy being outside! Please let it happen this year!
