Slipping and sliding and scootering

Pretty sure I just made up a word there, didn’t I?

Anyway, the boys got out this weekend to ride the scooters they got for Christmas, since the sun was shining and it was actually nice enough to go outside without feeling like a body part is going to freeze off!  However, the sun just doesn’t shine in our front yard at all in the winter, so five days after our really lame “snowstorm” which ended up being mostly ice, our front yard/driveway was still a solid sheet of ice. It certainly made the scootering more interesting when there was an ice skating component involved (a new winter Olympics sport, perhaps?)! In order to get to the street safely, we had to walk on little tufts of grass sticking up through the ice. Good times.

It was funny because Adam decided to grab our rake (???) to try to break up the ice on the driveway. Our neighbor heard the noise and I imagine after he got done secretly laughing at us, he came out to offer some of his ice melt. Yeah, we definitely need to get some of that for next time. I’m happy to report that our driveway is no longer a safety hazard (although I guess this means scooter-skate training for the winter Olympics is out of the question now).
