Snow again

We have had snow again in Washington the last two days! We have been busy building snow men and going sledding. My son is happy there is no school but he's bummed if we can't make it to his swimming lesson. Here's a picture of chase and his snowman and one of our view out back. Usually we have a beautiful view of Mt. Rainier out by those trees but today there's clouds in the way. We are kinda out in the country and near a few of the last remaining farms in our area. They have done major development and house building north of us. We are worried that if the old farmer out back ever sells or passes on, the property will be sold and then there will be a view of a bunch of houses some day. We do have a wetland that buffers a little.

I haven't been to the gym the past few days due to the weather and I suppose sledding isn't cutting it. So, if the weather doesn't improve I will try to get on my treadmill or do a exercise tape. Sometimes I don't feel like working out at home I find it boring and easy to procrastinate. The gym gets me motivated, as long as I just get in the door! I hope everyone is having a good week!

That is just a gorgeous view! You are so lucky. Well apart from the snow and the freezing cold!! Haha. It's so hot here it's not funny. I am taking Lachlan for his first swimming lesson this morning. I'm so excited. Is it wrong to take my camera - I guess I should be concentrating on what the teacher says? Have a great day!

Great snowman, beatiful family. You have a lot to be proud of and grateful, I appreciate that you share so much positive.

We've been sledding every weekend here in CO... (there's nothing else to do except shovel snow!).

calories burned while:

Sledding, tobogganing, bobsledding, luge

every 15 mins: 95
every hour: 381


I'd say it's better than the gym and a helluva lot more fun!
