It's been cold. I mean- really, really cold and snowing more feet than I can count. So when the temperature crept above freezing and the sun came out, we slipped into our snowpants, grabbed the beach toys and soaked it all up. (Because it certainly didn't last long. Today was back to below zero wind chill.) And despite what it may look like, we weren't putting the kids on an iceberg and pushing it out to sea. Though I thought of doing just that for myself, because the way I heard it, it actually might be warmer at the North Pole and is most definitely warmer in Alaska. Sunday though, Sunday gave us a glimpse of the light at the end of the tunnel.
