4.1.11 – There is SNOW and it’s NOT an April Fools Joke

We can be grateful that the 30 inches of snow that dumped on us 10 years ago has not been repeated but it royally stinks to have a few more inches on the ground.  Mainly for two reasons.  1) It’s Spring time and I’m really ready for it and 2) TOMORROW we are celebrating Maebh’s first birthday and  had hopes of the older kids to be able to spend a lot of time in the backyard.  Even if it is sunny and 50 degrees… the snow causes problems.  Ugh.  Fingers crossed and prayers that the rain will come and melt it asap.  Mud will be left, blah!

To think one year and 5 days ago, I took her home in record breaking heat of 90 degrees!!

Here are some photos of our this latest round of snow. 😦

Author: Stars Stripes and Mayonnaise

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
