Snow got dumped on us again. They originally predicted 28" but we only received 13".
Only...Minnesotans like to complain whether we get too little or too much. It was a big snowstorm over three days!
The kids playground is starting to get buried.
On Saturday Theo and I did some drawing together.
You need to start an art project to get Theo to draw or craft. Otherwise he's happy playing video games or building PicassoTile magnetic masterpieces.
Now that the upstairs is clean, and before we start prepping the floors, I tackled my giant mending pile that's been accumulating since last summer.
We were back on team stain and poly the pine floors upstairs. I tried a sanding a few places, but there was too many water stains from years of neglect. So patching and painting, it would be.
Meadow felt like baking and made four ingredient brownies.
This weekend was the last weekend to ice skate at Centennial Lakes in Edina. With all the snow and warm temps this winter they were closed a lot. Glad we made it before they closed.
It wasn't quite wild ice on Theo's birthday weekend, but it's one of the best ice trails in the Twin Cities.
There was another of Theo's birthday present from Chelsea when we got home.
Mini DC Superhero figures.
He's had these imaginext super friends and villains on his list for years!
I gave Theo and Meadow $20 when grandpa left the cottage last week. I told Theo he could get a new toy with that money if he tagged along to Target. We found this cool Lego ice cream truck set.
Monday was wet, cold and rainy. I layered Meadow's rain suit over Theo's winter gear and rain boots. He was still sopping wet when we got home.
I let Theo build his new Lego set when we got home
He built it all on his own apart from pushing some parts together and putting on the stickers.
Good job, Theo.
This going to be perfect, Mr. Mike.
