Let It Snow!!!

Well, Friday the forecast finally came true! When they said "Blizzard" they meant it by golly.

Friday we woke up and there was snow on the ground, and much more than we have had here all winter. It continued all day. The first video I took it was just getting started. Then Mike got home and we went out and had a snow ball fight; plus walked around in it to see just how deep it got.

My parents took us on vacation to New Mexico when I was Wendy's age and the snow was pretty deep. It went up to my waist and here it went to Wendy's bottom in some of the drifts, and up to her knee in the lower areas.

We think it was an average of 18" here.

Holly, Wendy and I had an adventure yesterday. The girls wanted to see the new animated Disney movie, and when we got to the theater the snow was up pretty high in the parking lot. Not to mention white outs I encountered while driving. Next time there will be NO getting out no matter what the kids want!!!! After all of that the theater manager decided to not open for the day. All of his employees were there, but they kept the doors closed until he made a final decision. So, we headed home stopped by Hastings for a few rentals to satisfy Holly and Wendy and then to the grocery store next door to get some soup fixings.

I was so glad to get back home.

It has about melted off now. Funny how quick that happened.

Enjoy the photos.

I'm so far behind this month. This is unlike me. I have been thinking of our day, but not going so crazy this month.
We were on Spring Break on our actual LID Anniversary. We actually celebrated at Sandia Peak in New Mexico on the 19th. It was fun riding the Tram up to see some remaining snow at the top. Did I say Snow? It was more like Ice and Slush, but still white and pretty though.
After coming back down we ate at a Mexican Restaurant they had at the bottom. Good food!
We were actually having fun and not allowing ourselves to be gloomy about not having our Mylie yet.

A Day at the Park

We decided to take a day of chilling out, and went to a local park. Our area is really good about having parks. They aren't all as fancy as this one but all are nice just the same.
This is the park that has the ducks as Wendy will say. We have had Canadian Geese here all winter, and just lately they are thinning out some. The whole area has had so many this year. There certainly isn't a shortage of Canadian Geese this year just the opposite, and for some reason they were very hard to hunt as well.

One of my favorites to see was the White Swan; there were actually 3 on the lake. Then you have the regular honking geese and the mallards are here in pairs.

Ladybugs are coming out!! We saw one land on a little girl at a birthday party that Wendy attended on Sunday afternoon. Just our luck it didn't land on me or Wendy. But we did see it!

Enjoy the photos.

Fun and Adventure.....

Lacy and I had a lot of fun keeping Wendy busy for a few days while Mike was on business of his own. We took her to the Ft. Worth Zoo and got to see their new Penguin exhibit. It is really nice. They are also adding the new reptile house and have been working on it since we have moved. Progress takes time at a Zoo I guess. The Zoo in general hasn't changed, but Wendy and I have missed it very much.
For lunch we went to Panera Bread and boy did we have fun doing this. We have good places to eat but we have missed this just the same. Funny it had undergone some renovation changes as well, but for the best since they had needed more seating.
Mike Wendy and I had gone to Macaroni Grill the evening before and were upset that they had renovated it also, but to add more seating took away the ambiance. That was sad to see.
We also hit our favorite Thai Place "Bangkok Thai House". We were greeted by the owners there. Wendy knows her as Grandma; so we all call her grandma. It was so nice seeing them once again. She remembered every dish we truly loved of hers.

We had a wonderful visit with my parents and were able to see Mike's mother before we left.

This day Lacy and I took Wendy to the American Girl Doll Store in Dallas. We had lunch there and treated her to a few treats from the Bitty Twin Collection. Wendy really was in awe of this store, and hopes to have her Birthday there someday. I say I will need a few years to save up for that. HA
Since we don't have one here we would have to go there which would mean road trip for some of her friends. Not sure how many of the little girls she could get to come at that rate.

Wendy was totally pooped!!

This is Wendy with her cousin Brooke. Aren't they cute! Can you believe that Wendy is 5 and Brooke is 3 years old?! Isn't that something?
