snow day!

We had another dump of snow last night, which meant that Donovan was finally able to use the sled that he received for Christmas. I’m going to let the pictures do most of the talking here, but a few comments of note: 1 – it was -22’C outside, and the smile never left Donovan’s face. 2 – when […]
