We are getting a BIG SNOW right now as I type.
And when you think of us Minnesotans you might be thinking,
"It's suppose to snow! You live in Minnesota!"
But by now we are usually wearing shorts to school,
even if our legs are cold.
Most people like to hunker down when it starts piling up,
but not my husband, so when I suggested
we go grab a treat he was in.
We got our jammies on to go out.
We piled in the car & headed down the road.
Three hours ago it had been green
& we had hope that Spring might come.
Kelly was just happy to get the chance to
spin the tires while I grab onto the dash board going, "Kelly!"
His eyes always twinkle when I furrow my brows at him.
(& I wonder why my boys are rascals)
But he always manages to get us where we need to go safely,
and tonight we needed to get here:
Then like magic,
just stepping through this door turns a frosty night...
...into a cozy one.
I'm not gonna lie...
there was a little ruckus with Roo
& some flying chocolate for Kit,
And I went home with my jeans looking like this:
(Yes, that IS practically my whole leg)
I even took Roo for a cold timeout in the snow
because I don't let him carry on in restaurants.
But there was a also a bit of this:
and a bit of that:
Oh & some of this too!
and by the time we left I knew
it was a night we had made count.
And now it's here, captured.
In twenty years when people are still talking about
"the snowiest April back in 2013"
and Kit doesn't remember a thing about it,
I'll show him how I put his car seat
out in the snow for him to enjoy a few flakes.
I also am a little magical,
just turned his blankie over & Poof!...clean!
Not so much with my jeans.
Here's hoping for a snow day!
