Our first real snow day arrived today. We had some snow flurries last month, but nothing that stuck to the ground. When we woke up and I glanced outside, I was delighted to see everything covered in a couple of inches of beautiful, white snow. Our "super" Al, was already outside salting down our stoop and the sidewalks in front of our building and the others he cares for on our block. It was only 21 degrees outside, but we bundled ourselves up and headed out to church, then continued on to explore the snow covered city. We had such a fun day. Since everything was already decorated for Christmas, the snow just added to the wonderful holiday spirit. We spent hours exploring (and only having had a cupcake for a snack!) and were definitely ready for some good food and warm house when we were done.
