Well, we’re taking guesses on what day the ice will go out. My guess is one week from today – April 18th. Eric’s guess is April 16th. It made major progress today. Our bay is nearly all melted.
And this little pile here is what was left of our final (knock on wood) snowstorm. It melted today. Good riddance!
The kids spent a lot of time wrestling each other today. This isn’t exactly what I meant when I said, “go play.” Oh well.
Ohhhh to have the complexion of a toddler! It’s not fair!!!
For some reason, this mask has been getting a lot of face time. Pun intended. They both think it’s hilarious!
My ZIN (Zumba Instructor Network) 32 DVD arrived today, so we worked on our dancing skills. Clearly, the mask was needed. Gives the dancing a little more flair.
There is just something about latin music that makes them want to move. They always stop what they are doing when they hear Zumba music come on.
I love Avery in this one. She favors the Raggaeton rhythm and when she hears a song she really likes or knows, she gets pretty crazy.
After dancing, we went out to check on nature. Since the ice is going out, the wildlife are providing us with more entertainment than usual. You’ll be happy to hear that we have seen a loon – so it looks like they didn’t get oiled up in the gulf like we had feared.
The stuff you see in the water is ice chunks breaking off of the main mass of ice. Its NOT weeds. Yet.
Iceberg! Dead ahead! If you look closely, you can see 2 fools on the ice fishing. See them? They are the 2 specks directly above the right side of the iceberg.
Avery is loving the slide this year. I’m just hoping that the grass dries up pretty soon cuz they both got pretty muddy from their boots getting mud all over the slide and then their butts sliding into the mud from their boots. I’m soooooo not a fan of spring mushiness.
Finally, I was able to distract them away from the mushiness to go for a wagon ride.
It didn’t last long and they made me turn around to go home. I’ve been waiting for Avery to be able to sit on the well cap! 2 years ago I took a picture of Dylan sitting on it while Avery was baking’ away in my belly. Now here she sits.
Well, that is all for now! Chuck is all new tonight, so I’ve got a date with the couch and my husband! Later!
