The snow set the program, early this week.

On Tuesday morning, we opened the door to show Thea why we couldn’t go outside just yet. We were happy to wait until most of the 17 inches had fallen and our neighbor with the snowblower helped us out.

The pop-up gutter bumpers and the rack for rolling the kids’ balls were very helpful!

Much of the excitement involved keeping Finn from getting his fingers mashed by the bowling balls rolling through the ball return, chasing him across the deck, and keeping him out of other people’s lanes.

And Nonna and Baba dropped by on their way home from Florida! My shirtless children had just enjoyed another round of messy hot chocolate.

It’s hard to find a moment that’s happy for everyone.
