Aquarium trip

Hello everyone,

Last week we got to go on a field trip to the aquarium with the middle boy's class. It was so much fun! The little boy (and his monkey) loved the large tank. Here's some pics from that wonderful day! How blessed we are to have the opportunity to do these things with our children.

Whew, that was a long and cold winter. I am so glad that it is over. I know you think it's not because you believe that silly ground hog but I believe my daffodils and robins :)

Didn't think we got blizzards in NC did you? Me either. I have heard that it hasn't snowed this much here in eight years! We had warning so everyone got to the store and stocked up on groceries, (you never know how long you will be snowed in for) and our local grocery store even had snow shovels! We ended up getting so much snow that school was shut down for 2 days!! How much snow does Syracuse have to get for school to shut down for two days? 2 feet? 3? 4? Well, we got about an inch. The boys had so much fun in it, for a little while. Since they have my blood in them they didn't stay out in it long at all. The girl and I watched them play from inside :) Of course, we felt that we earned a cup of hot chocolate too because we were cold just watching them.
Enjoy the pics, it'll probably be another eight years before we get another storm like this one!
