Cold Days, Cold Metal, It's No Party In The Park This Time of Year

02.18.2013

Winter in the Park

True, the days are less short than they were a few months ago. However, Winter is still hanging around in Central Oregon. Of course with two little ones, they get cabin fever worse than a grizzly bear who's hungry and knows there's an IHOP down the road from his cave serving up all-you-can-eat pancakes topped with honey.

Yep, it's hard to expect the park bears to simply sit around, twiddle their thumbs and eat apples.

So, The Teacher and myself have been hitting the park when we can with the no-so-little ones. It's tough with Lars' nap schedule on the weekends. By the time he wakes up, the sun is fading fast. So, we pack up the van as fast as we can, and go to the park (with limited daylight and heat).

Of course anything that's metal is brutal to hold on to. It's too cold to sit on most surfaces. In fact, you basically pace around and hope that nothing turns blue.

Yipes! Oh wait, it's just his coat.

So, the plan is basically keep cool at the park in the cold.

If the tone of this post is somewhat down on the weather. Perhaps it's due to the fact that snow is forecast for the upcoming weekend. I know the cabin fever will set in again, and no one is going to be happy just sitting around eating apples, so will keep updating this site, which I just switched to HostGator web hosting with the help of www.hostgatorcouponcode.com.

Nope.
