Call us crazy but both of us are so happy to be home in the snow and cold! We've gotten more snow this winter than we have in a very long time and it was killing us not to be a part of it! We got home Wednesday evening to massive amounts of snow. We had our first fire since Christmas and my favorite pizza!
Thursday was a double cartwheel day (yup, I still do one everyday)! I was able to get out snowshoeing, we went for a snowmobile ride and then got together with friends and caught up on the local Hooterville happenings!
I decided that while I'm home, I'm going to try to get out snowshoeing everyday. The trail across the river is broken (thanks Brad Amos!) and temperatures have been in the 20's the last few days, so I have I've been enjoying the great outdoors!
Tom thought it would be fun to try and get one of the snowmobiles to the top of the snow pile in front of our house......he only got it so far before it got buried and he had to dig it out ;). He and Sam have been riding like crazy! They went out Friday with Dave Weinhold and Alex Kurth to Fountain. The conditions were perfect and they had a terrific time together!
Saturday they headed out with another group on their sleds to Minneiska. The morning ride was great, but by the afternoon it started to rain and they were soaked by the time they got home.
After two full days of snowmobiling, he's a little sore! So today we're enjoying the day inside by the fire!
We are going to enjoy the snow, our family and friends while on this break from the Loop. Being home just reinforces what every Minnesotan knows.....we live in a beautiful part of the world.
More from MinneSNOWta later~
