We had our last(?) winter storm of the year yesterday evening and through the night. These March snowstorms seem very strange, but apparently they're not all that uncommon; at least according to the weatherman they aren't.
The kids have been begging to go play in the snow since before it started snowing. They wanted to go play in the hail yesterday afternoon, but I stood my ground. I did let them eat some from a bowl that I ran out to the sidewalk. I'm nothing if not a dedicated mother.
We have a bowl full of snow in the freezer now and we're going to make some snow ice cream later when they've had time to recover from playing outside with Daddy. It's funny how I've gone from the "can't wait to get outside" of childhood, to the "call me when you're ready to come back in" of my almost-30s.
I have to admit. I'm still very excited about the snow ice cream though. Some things never change. (Oh, and no, Mom, I'm not using the raw egg. Sorry.)
