Had another bout of cold weather this week. Had a few days where we had about an inch of snow in the morning. The kicker is that we are supposed to get at least eight inches of snow tomorrow.
Overall ha a good weekend though. The Milligans came over Friday night to watch a movie they had wanted to see from Netflix, and stayed around to watch Star Trek: Into Darkness for a double feature.
Saturday was fairly busy as everyone went to archery practice in the morning. Linker was able to get a run in along most of his normal route after about three weeks of ice and snow covered sidewalks. In the afternoon, Seth and Linker did a little baseball practice up at the school, even though it was fairly cold.
Last night, we went to the 5:00 service at church, with the first time we had it up a Fork Christian Church in Kingsville. The services are going to be there for a few weeks until our new building is completed. We dropped off Ian at his friend Chad's house for a sleepover after church.
Today Linker and Seth played a game of Tri-ominoes and Trouble in the morning before going to his Little League tryouts. Seth sounded like he did well, and they went to the baseball card store afterwards to get some cards.
This afternoon, Ian has his major league tryouts for his league. Laura and Ethan Milligan are coming over tonight to watch the boys as Linker and Deb are going to the 50th anniversary dinner for the Maryland HFMA chapter. The weather is supposed to hold up until they leave, but going downhill overnight.

Finally a warm weekend, but it promises to not last, unfortunately. We still have some leftover snow from the February 13th snowstorm. The melting and refreezing usually makes a icy mess in the morning. Linker had to find an alternate running route yesterday after the sidewalk around Honeygo Park were still covered with snow and ice. Expecting colder temperatures for this coming week.
Yesterday after his run, Linker and the boys all went for haircuts before archery lessons. Archery was pretty packed, so we hope that next week the crowds thin out a bit. In the afternoon, Linker and the boys got to play a little baseball, even though the ground was still really wet.
Today was the last service at 8094 Sandpiper for our church, so it was a bit bittersweet. We got to write a message on the walls as a final goodbye. Hopefully moving into our new home soon. At least for a few weeks, we will be using another church.
After church, Linker and the boys went to the Walters Art Museum and enjoyed making a art project like a stained glass window. They also enjoyed a game of checkers in the Knights's Hall. Deb and the boys then went to the Milligans' church to practice for their Easter puppet show. Linker watched the NHRA drag racing in Phoenix and hoped to watch a rain-delayed Daytona 500.

Had the biggest snowstorm come through since the twin blizzards of 2010 this last week. On early thursday morning, we got well over a foot of snow. The boys didn't go to school either Thursday or Friday. So a lot of shoveling was done that day. To add insult to injury, we got another four inches or so that night, so Friday morning was also spent shoveling.
Yesterday after Linker tried to find the least icy route possible for his Saturday morning run, Linker and the boys went to go see the LEGO Movie at the Senator Theatre. The boys really enjoyed it and even Linker did like parts of it.
Today after church, there was not too much activity. Seth went over to play with his friend JJ in the afternoon. Deb and Linker watched some of the qualifying for the Daytona 500 in the afternoon.

Had a good weekend though still cold. Wednesday brought an ice storm that really affected areas north and west of here. The boys actually got the day off from school as roads around here were really slick.
Yesterday, everyone went to archery and had a good time. In the afternoon, everyone went down to the Motor Trend Auto Show at the Baltimore Convention Center. Everyone enjoyed looking at the new cars, especially the 2105 Mustang and some of the more exotic cars.
Today after church, Linker and Seth went out to pick up Linker a new pair of running shoes and a few packs of baseball cards. Linker also watched the NHRA Winternationals on ESPN3 in the afternoon, while Ian went to visit his friend Chad and Deb and Seth went to a puppet show at the Milligan's church. We also are expected a small round of snow tonight as well.
