SnowFEST 2009

Instead of watching the Superbowl I am updating my blog. (It's not even on at my house - GASP)
Yesterday the boys and I attended the annual Snowfest that the city puts on. Either Darren or I post on this every year but it's a fun Saturday event you can enjoy in the frosty winter.

This is Ethan after sledding down the hill the one and only time he did. He wouldn't turn around when I wanted to take his picture because he was mad. Apparently his sled slowed down halfway down the hill and the boy behind him slammed into his back. He told me that that boy was now his archenemy. We had to have a discussion about forgive and forget.

Kevin going down the hill.

Ethan bowling while Jacob watches. Each kid that bowled got a free pass to one of the bowling alleys. I guess we'll see if they actually get used. (We tend to collect things like that but never use them.)

The three boys on the wagon ride around the park. No, that's not snow on Kevin's coat. It's a gaping hole that needs to get fixed.

While we were waiting in line for bowling, Jacob was eating snow. When he started sharing with Ethan I had to take a picture. Then I realized he was getting the snow from where people had been walking and I had to put an end to it.

This is not snowfest but it is a wintry picture. Last year our windows looked like this a lot. This year they've only been like this a few times. It's been plenty cold this year just not as cold as last. This past week was the first day the schools got canceled this year and I'm pretty sure there were 2 or 3 days cancelled by Feb 1 last year.

The other day when we were walking through Sam's Club Jacob was trying to eat the "snow" out of the freezers. I think he's addicted. :)

Does Ethan know what an archenemy is? That's a pretty big word. That looked like a fun activity.

I'm not sure where he learned it but he does know what an archenemy is.

What a great activity! We used to have winterfest in San Antonio, they would make a big pile of snow and everyone would come. You sure don't need to make any!

I love the picture of the three boys!! Looks cold, but fun! We didn't watch the Super Bowl either!!

Looks like a lot of fun, Rose stole the question right out of my mouth, that is a big word lol. If I was closer, I would take them bowling, It's so much fun!
