ICEmaggedon Day 2

The ice certainly didn't melt after Friday, in fact it was even slicker than it was on the first day. When we woke up Saturday morning, it was in the teens outside and felt even colder than that. Of course the first thing Kate asked me when she woke me up was "Can we go outside?" because she wanted to go sledding again. I tried the best I could to explain to her that it was bitter cold and we needed to wait until the afternoon, which to a 4 year old just goes in one ear and out the other. Finally around 3:30 we ventured out, even though it was still only 27 degrees.
 It was so cold, I kept having to fix Kate's scarf over her face to try and keep it from being exposed. We don't own any actual face masks so we were improvising.
 What you can't hear from still photos is the squeals of laughter every time she went down the driveway. She had a blast, and it was really difficult to convince her to come inside and warm up because she wanted to keep going over and over again. I am pretty certain that she doesn't feel hot or cold - because she kept saying she was fine. Sometimes when you're having too much fun, it doesn't matter how cold it is, right?
