A winter March???

Well, folks, we just had a blizzard! Yes, a blizzard. In March. I know... nuts, right? Our backyard total was 16.5 inches! We woke up to a blanket of freshly fallen snow and it was just beautiful! However, it's not so beautiful for the driveway. In Colorado, if you don't frequently shovel your drive during snowstorms, it can be disasterous. The snow will melt in layers leaving a blanket of ice. So, poor Ryan had to shovel 4 times during the day. Luckily, our sweet friend (he's a sophomore in high school) down the street was out and about helping neighbors in need. While he and Ryan shoveled the first time, I got Ford's snow suit (thanks Gramps and Grandma) on and we went on an adventure. He had a great time!

He was not a happy camper at this point. He'd just fallen down, poor guy!

We planted daffodils in the fall and they'd just started to bloom. So much for
a colorful yard!

I love this picture! Ford has the faintest hint of a smile...

Look at the van in the background. See how deep it is?
