Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

We're getting a couple more inches today on top of two other decent winter storms this January. This week was one big snow week - MLK holiday on Monday, early dismissal on Tuesday and no school on Wednesday!

We've been getting a lot of sledding in.  We can go right in our front yard!

 In between the fun, we also did some work with our brand new snow shovels!
 We also took a short walk to a park down the street with a perfect sledding hill.
 A face full of snow fun.

 Flying with Grandma Aileen.
Testing the [frozen] waters. Oh yeah.. the high this day was 15 degrees F.

NYC - the City

Before Grandma Aileen left, we all went into 'the City' to go to a children's bookstore. We all got new books! Davin didn't like the his first choice, but he did get excited when he found a book about knights.

After the bookstore, we went on a hunt for an ice skating rink. It just seemed like the 'thing to do' in NYC in the winter - run on ice next to a big building. We ended up at Bryant Park and it was awesome! Davin and I got pretty good at it after at least a dozen trips around the rink.

 Fancy Bryant Park also had a Merry-go-round. I pranced on a pretty pink pony. Davin rode a rapid rabbit.
