Parents' Weekend Recap
*The only stinking picture I took all weekend. Mom took my place as the picture lady and took a gazillion. It looks like we just told them something horrible in the picture but we didn't, I promise. They usually look happy.
Well, we had a fantastic weekend with the parentals in Erie. I won't give you a play-by-play but here's the reader's digest version:
1. There's a little cabin at the peninsula where you can rent snowshoes & cross country skis. It's by the buggy place & the pond. Anywhoos, we decided to venture there on Saturday and try out our abilities. Well, they'd gotten a lot of snow the night before so we were kinda grooming our own trails, if you will. It was a lot of fun and I'm sure the ice fishermen appreciated our screams of delight scaring the fish away. We all fell at least once. Actually I think I'm the only one who only fell once but, in Adam's defense, he did have Powers's leash. MUSH!
2. My parents got to witness, first hand, the phenomenom that is the "Erie red light maneuver". That is, when a person is turning left at a light, instead of waiting for the green arrow or until there's a clearing in the traffic, they'll simply wait until the light turns RED, then they'll whip their left turn quickly (or not so quickly). I've never seen anything like it but it's very common here, apparently. No one ever toots their horn at them. E.R.L.M.
3. Adam & I built our first snowman together.
It's harder than one might think to build a life-size snowman. You can't tell but Frosty has a pipe. Snowmen have bad tobacco addictions. Don't be like Frosty, kids. Adam also built a "dog-gloo" but Powers wasn't such a fan. Pictures to follow.
Also, has anyone ever seen the car sculpture place? My mom took a picture of the bumblebee bug sculpture but there are several others. It's out by where we go to church. Anyone know the story?
In summary, good visit with the parents. I think they should move here so they wouldn't be so darn far away. Can everyone we love please relocate? Thanks.
