Today you make memories for tomorrow. 

In the aftermath of the blizzard of ’11, I witnessed many people out and about:  kids jumping into piles of snow, parents pulling children in sleds, dogs frolicking at Lindberg Park and homeowners SHOVELING!  But, the most creative play?  This mom and daughter team gliding down my street, delighting in the winter beauty.  Their smiles say it all!

Hope you made wonderful memories with your family during this dazzling, magnificent, beautiful blizzard.

The snow is perfect for igloos too!

Making snow angels, snowmen, and shaking snow from bushes are all memory makers for parents and children. Playing with your children is a wonderful way to make a connection with them.
