This morning I awoke to another foot+ of snow in the yard. Luckily, I worked from home today so I could get up and help with the cleanup and not miss time. I also didn’t have to commute in that stuff. The snow was pretty soft and easy to move and since we packed all the cars at the top of the driveway it was pretty easy to clear out and then move everything. The sunshine on the blacktop took care of most of the rest of the snow throughout the day.
It was Erik, Tara, Dad and Me clearing things off and shoveling and using the snowblower. Even Uncle Mike got up to clear off his cruiser and get help out. And by help out I mean take pictures and write in the snow. The snow was so high that it started to crumble upon itself like a mini Avalanche.
I then worked for the day and once work was over I strapped Eva to my back and went outside… What? Yes, I strapped her to my back using a Piggyback Rider (@piggybackrider). I received one the other day and wanted to try it out. So I put Eva in the kid harness. I put on the parent harness and she stepped on the bar and we walked around outside. Eva really enjoyed it too.
I’ll be writing a review on this blog as well as a post over on Road to Thin about this product. I think I will title it as creative ways to use your kids as gym equipment.
Eva and I went into the back yard with my sister Tara. I put on my snowshoes and Tara had hers as well. We needed them in the back yard because the snow was up so high I could almost step right over the fence into the neighbor’s backyard. I have never seen the snow this high before. If you look at the photo today you will see a track that Eva is in for her sled. I made that with my snowshoes and if I took my snowshoes off and walked that same track then I would have sunk down at least another foot with each step. The amount of snow we’ve gotten this year is crazy!
Tonight Allison was off for birthday dinner with the girls so it was just Eva and me. I decided to take her out for dinner to Piccadilly Pub. I love that place and Allison is not a big fan so when she is gone I try and go. They serve you popcorn there and both Eva and I love it so we settled in with a bowl of popcorn and then we split pub pretzels and the boneless chicken fingers platter. Eva tried the stone ground mustard, said she didn’t like it and then continued to dip her pretzel into it. She cracks me up. We had a delicious dinner and then came home and watched a very special Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. That review is coming soon. By the way did you know that I run Giveaways all the time? Yeah, I have one up right now for some BKW Seasonings and tomorrow one for Popchips goes live.
