April (Snow) Showers

Thought we were safe for the spring but we were wrong. Yesterday we got another significant dumping of snow. It was a rainy snowy slushy mix for awhile. We even got some thundersnow (thunder and lightning accompanying snow). The lights flickered a few times which made us nervous that the power would go out before we got dinner made. But it never did. We enjoyed the warm indoors last night with chili, brownies, and beer for mom and dad and Alan ever partook of a couple bites of pureed peas/rice and a sip of milk.

Then, Alan was in his rambuncious (sp?) playful mood and I made him channel his energy toward some weight bearing in his legs. And...Never mind my unkempt "stuck in a blizzard" appearance. Alan stayed like that leaning (well, leaning a lot) on the couch for at least 30 seconds with most of the weight on his legs. He was shaky but he did it!Go Alan go.

And as soon as we defrost again here - we're going out to play.
