So, somehow, I have a new time slot. I think something may have gone down. I may have missed something….I’m not sure.
Regardless….here I am at 7:00 a.m. Wow….it’s an early time slot to fill!
I’m feeling kind of tired, crazy blizzard and all (did you know that we had a blizzard?), two young boys, full-time job….lots going on. Plus I’m kind of crampy. And out of Midol. Just saying.
I know that I accepted the responsibility to report some family friendly Picks of the Week…and accepted eagerly at that…but, maybe I’ll just sit back and hope that someone else will cover this mumbo jumbo this week. Maybe Craig will randomly step up and offer some kid friendly activities. I wonder types of activities those would be 😉 Maybe, Donna or Kim will. Maybe Paul or the other Paul. Surely someone will pick up my slack. After all, my hands are still cold from sledding and shoveling…..and taking photos and videos during the blizzard at the end of my street.
Oh, wait, that would be wrong, I mean I agreed to do this….I WANTED to do this. I mean, if I suddenly wasn’t in the mood to do this……or was too busy doing it for someone else….obviously the right thing to do would be to let Joey know. You know….so he could count on someone else right??
So, on that note…. Here are my Picks of the Weekend.
It’s all about the snow, bout the snow, bout the snow….
It’s all about the snow this weekend because we haven’t had much to enjoy thus far this year!
So, that being the case, my favorite picks would just be to get out and enjoy it!
Sledding, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, you name it.
If you’re looking form simpler things to do in your own backyard, check out these links full of snowy day activities!

And, here’s a link to a cute blog with a perfect Homemade Snow Ice Cream recipe! Ummm….Yummm. Just stay away from the yellow snow 😉
Gimme Some Oven: Snow Ice Cream
If you’re tired of the snow already (it’s ok to admit it) and are looking for an indoor activity that you haven’t already done 100 times, maybe check out the North Reading High School Masquers Club and their performance of Peter Pan!

It’s Groundhogs Day!
I am well aware that I use the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary as my go-to weekend “to do”, but I can’t help that they offer such interesting and fantastic activities each weekend. This weekend is no different!

Is spring on the way, or are we faced with another six weeks of winter? According to legend, Punxsutawney Phil foretells the impending weather each year. If he sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter. If not, spring is near. Ongoing activities throughout the afternoon include nature hikes, a groundhog obstacle course, snow sculptures (if there’s snow), crafts, refreshments, and more. The official groundhog celebration takes place at 2:00 pm in our warm and spacious Barn. Families with children of all ages are invited to join us for this fun seasonal event.
