Our Fourth Week ~ 2014

Last week was interesting.  {ahem} 

The kids had off Monday for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  Tuesday they were off for an in-service day.  Wednesday they had a 2-hour delay because of the frigid temps.  Thursday was finally a normal school day.  But Friday they had another 2-hour delay because of the cold.  

(For those of you who don't know what a 2-hour delay is, that is when the kids start school two hours later than normal.  The idea, I guess, is that the roads will be clearer or the temperatures a bit warmer if they start later.)

Doug and I had planned to take the kids snow tubing on Tuesday.  He took a vacation day to do just that.  But as Tuesday approached and we saw that the high for the day was supposed to be in the low teens with wind chills below zero, we decided that wasn't the best idea.  The higher you get in the mountains, the lower the temps.  So we opted to drive down to Cabela's instead.  Being indoors was a much better idea.

Anyway, here are a few photos from last week, including some from inside Cabela's.

On Sunday afternoon Alex was playing with one of his trains and asked me to take pictures of the track that he had built.  I did, but then I snapped a quick one of him also.

The kids in front of the big mountain that is inside Cabela's.

I was impressed with the animal exhibits they had there.  They looked so real.  And the background paintings on the walls were great.

Keira asked me to take a picture of the coyote.  We both agreed it is kinda creepy, the way it looks like it is smiling.  :)

Just having a conversation with a moose.

Scary polar bear.

Nick traded a bunch of LEGOS with a friend in exchange for a used air soft gun.  He asked me to take his picture with his new toy, and since he doesn't often ask to have his picture taken, I was glad to oblige.  Tough guys wear mittens, ya know.  :)

We were out playing in the abundant snow on Saturday.  Honey, who loves everything about snow, was refusing to look at me as she often does.  I have many profile shots of her.  :)

So there's just a snippet of our week.  Other snippets can be found in Sunday's Scavenger Hunt.  (In case you needed something to do.)  :)

Linking this weekly summary with Tamar.  Go show her some love, won'tcha?
