Those were the times...."before we had kids" is what I call that time way back when...when you could just go anywhere spur of the moment without worrying about packing diapers, extra clothes, snacks, pacifiers, and sippy cups!
I thought I would share a photo of my husband and I up at Punxsutawney celebrating Groundhog's Day on 2-2-02.
It was 17 degrees that day and we stood outside and waited for that groundhog for several hours starting at about 4:30 am. Call us crazy...but it was FUN! Then we walked a couple of miles into town for a festival! It was awesome! Every year I keep praying for super warm weather so I can take the boys!
That's one lucky thing about living in the Pittsburgh area...even though at times I wish I lived elsewhere, there are so many great places that aren't very far. Philadelphia is about 4 hours away, New York City about 6 hours, Chicago about 7 hours, Washington D.C. about 2 1/2 hours, and Punxsutawney 2 hours. That's really cool!
Sometimes we reminisce about what it was like "Before Kids".....But I wouldn't change it for anything...we're just creating new memories with our family!
Here are two other photos that I wanted to share with you. Yesterday while driving through Punxsutawney we saw these awesome snow sculptures that were in someones yard.
Here is the dolphins: And here is the dinosaur, which was about 8 feet tall!
I had to stop and talk to the guy of course! He was outside and spraying down his sculptures with food coloring! He said that they're made out of snow,and he used a machete to carve them.
They were really spectacular! I can't even build a snowman! lol
He said that he built them for all the people who travel to Punxsutawney for Groundhog's Day! He said next year he's hoping to set up a coffee stand to make a little extra cash! What a cool idea! I think he should make a groundhog, what do you think!?
Be sure to visit my blog tomorrow....I'm going to post about a super cool giveaway!
