Last week most of our snow melted. It was a hopeful week. One that reminded us that if we can just stand the dark mornings, numb fingers and white ground for another couple of months spring is just around the corner...as they say. Ben loves the outdoors but hates the cold so on this plus degree day he welcomed the oppertunity to run around on the mostly clear deck for over an hour. With no toys out there he did nothing but enjoy the chance to be outdoors. It's coming Ben...I promise!!
