We are Canadian!!!

Yesterday we were totally tricked into thinking that the "Great Melt Down" had begun and that spring was just around the corner ( it was+7 and the sun was intense!)... NOT SO!!  
Today it's -15 with wind chill of -26. This is Edmonton however, and we are used to it!  SO... Sam and I bundled up to go walk the dog and "Play". I am always amazed at the imagination and creativity that exudes from my children! Here are a few pictures of Sam having a great time in, what is in my opinion, a wasteland of ice and snow! 
Hey, we are Canadians!!!

All ready to go!

A teeter-totter in the forest!
Harley loves the snow and cold.

Cutting ice bricks. Grandpa L would be proud!

Hiding spot under the spruce trees! " Come in Mom, It's warm in here" Yah right!!!
We played for about 45 minutes (remember how cold it is? CRAZY) 
This is definitley my creative exercise for the day!

I can't even stand the cold in UTAH! So how you guys are able to tolerate that is just beyond me! Looks like loads of fun though :)

I get cold just reading about temperaturesin the negative. BURR! I am such a desert rat. It has been in the 60's here and if the wind is blowing I get cold. I know, I am such a wimp. Hopefully you will get above 0 soon.
