Marissa’s 40th and Snow!

Yay! Big snow for us, finally. And yes, I turned 40 on the 16th – 40 in years anyway. (I made this in homage to the long-awaited snow)

At Shevlin Park, we walked familiar trails. Just a week ago the paths were frozen ground covered in whispy pine needle remains, now they’re blanketed in weightless crystals. We kicked up our heels, hopped like kangaroos, and dared to cross the bridge that Ody curiously would not. Welcome 40!

Billiards, IMAX, Sled Rides, a Fiery Sunset, Cranium, and Cupcakes

We had a ball with my dad, sister, niece, nephew and their darling dog Ody. This post’s title covers some of the highlights of the trip: we played lots of pool, discovered (after a year of living here – ahem!) that we have an IMAX theater and saw high-flying MI4, took Summer and Everest up for an afternoon of daredevil sledding on an icy hill, strolled around Mirrorpond awed by the sky on fire, played Cranium until the wee hours on two mornings, and ate enough cupcakes from Ida’s Cupcake Cafe’ to give anyone a bellyache.

So. Much. Fun. – Come back soon!
