Winter Day at the Beach

We decided to go on a trip to the beach not to long ago on a crisp, bright, clear winter day.  It was lovely, but I will say that we are really about ready for some bright, clear, WARM beach days now.  :)

Yet another reason to love galoshes.  :)

The seagulls never fail to litter the beach with interesting finds.  ;)

Snow, snow, snow!

As you may know, we've received a bit of snow recently.  Funny thing is that we hadn't gotten really any snow the whole winter and I foolishly thought we actually just might not get a big dumping of snow this year.  Ha!  :)  One of the many wonderful things about living up here in the northeast…plenty of snow for playing during the winter!  We have a 4 foot storage container that is now completely under the snow outside, and our fence area looks like a big sandbox, only with snow.  The level of the snow in our yard is just about at the 6 foot level in places.

Our most recent snow amount from last night into the early morning.

"King of the Snow Hill".  He's saying "Ahoy Daddy!".  This was from the previous snows without the most recent fall.

Our current walking tunnel from the house to the vehicles and yard.

Fun on top of the snow.  :)
Will getting ready to slide down the snow bank on the side of our driveway.

Drifts upon drifts in the side yard.

This boy enjoys playing in the snow!

You can see the snow line among our roughly 6 foot fence.
