Faking it.

There is still snow on the ground... winter has been going on for 14 months now... plans continue to be canceled due to blowing snow, subzero weather, icy roads, and other dangerous driving conditions... can i get a big sigh? {{SIGH!}} Typical MN winter and after spending my whole life in the Midwest, one would think that I would be able to cope better. Perhaps it is the lack of sunlight or maybe my extremely inefficient circulation, but I have reached my limit. I.HATE.WINTER!

So, I have to resort to my old stand-by.... good ol' denial. It was denial that caused us to bundle up and drive in very icy, snowy, low-visability conditions to Thumperpond Water Park to spend a few precious hours pretending to live in a summer-like oasis of surf and sand. It was just a few hours, yet it was invigurating! We were joined by the Hubert family, which added another element of fun and excitment for the Lindgren clan.

Here's to faking it!
