We’re supposed to be at a hotel in Langley right now, but it just wasn’t in the cards. The weather went to !@# about a week ago and today we woke up to a steady snowfall that lasted all morning. The mountain highways are a mess, so we opted to call off the trip rather than risk life and limb on the Coquihalla. It’s disappointing, but we still had fun today: we took the kids to the rec centre to swim (in their brand new swim shirts and goggles), which kept all of us busy for an hour and a half, and then we went for a very successful lunch at Montana’s.
Afterwards I went out to play racquetball with Laura for the first time this year. I haven’t been able to play since my dental surgery, but now, after 53 days of not biting anything, I only have three more to go, so I figured racquetball was pretty safe. (And as it turned out, I was safe, but Laura took a ball to the head a couple times. Ouch.)
So here we are at the halfway point of spring break. The kids both did a little mini-camp at a local park for three mornings this week, which they seemed to like, even if I had to send them in full winter gear (damn this crappy weather!) Plus we did a trip to the library, and to the Energyplex, and Justin went out on a couple play dates, so there seemed to be a good balance of time at home and time away. Next week might be a different story, but we’ll see how things go.
Happy St. Paddy’s Day!
