A little milder weekend this time around, but Saturday was rather cool and rainy all day. Everyone went out to the school for bingo night on Friday and the kids enjoyed winning prizes.

Saturday was started off with archery class for the boys that everyone went to and enjoyed. the rest of the day was spent inside mostly playing games and keeping warm.

Today Deb was not feeling well and Seth was recovering from an illness earlier in the week, so we skipped church. Linker changed the oil in his Jeep. Later, Deb and Linker watched the Daytona 500 and Linker watched some drag racing in the late afternoon.

Cold and windy weekend this time around. The boys have tomorrow off for President's Day.

Yesterday Linker finally got in a Saturday morning run after basically missing a month of runs to to snow, extreme cold or wind (or all of the above). Everyone went over to archery yesterday morning. The boys watched Linker play a beta version of Sim City on the computer in the early afternoon.

Today after church, there was some playing of Minecraft by the boys. Linker watched the Winternationals from Pomona to start the NHRA drag racing season. Ian was planning to go over to his friend Chad's for a sleepover tonight.

This week was big in Baltimore as the Ravens won the Superbowl sunday night as they beat the 49ers 34-31 in one that was pretty close at the end. There was a big parade downtown Tuesday and close to 100,000 people went to a post parade celebration in the stadium.

Yesterday everybody went over to archery practice in the morning. There were a lot less people at the 9:30 class this time, so the boys had more opportunities to shoot.

Yesterday afternoon, everyone went down to the Baltimore Auto Show. It was certainly better than in the past few years, with more high end cars and some classic cars in the mix. The boys liked watching the Jeep demos where them climbed hills and went over obstacles. Deb got to meet some of the DJs from the local radio station.

Today after church, Linker and Seth went over to Jerusalem Mill Village where he made Deb a valentine's day card. They also played by the river a little bit before heading home. Linker and the boys also enjoyed the somewhat milder weather and practiced a bit of baseball in the afternoon.

Rather cold and dreary weekend. Temperatures never quite made it up to freezing, and we got a dusting of snow last night.

Yesterday the boys went to their first archery session of the winter and had a good time. It was a bit packed, but hopefully the ranks will thin a bit for next week. Then Linker and the boys went to Burger King for lunch. Deb and gone with her friend Sue to a bible study class at her church. In the afternoon, Seth and Linker went to the library to check out a few new books.

Today is Superbowl Sunday, with the Ravens playing the 49ers late today. Even at church folks were dressed up in their Ravens gear. So there will be a lot of happy or sad people here in Baltimore tomorrow morning.
