Believe It or Not...

Well folks, I'm beginning to doubt that we are going to have spring or summer here in Kalispell this year! We've had record cooler temperatures and rain/snow this year. We enjoyed a beautiful sunny morning yesterday, only to be ended by cloudy skies and rain only hours later. I had reached my breaking point and spent Zane's nap yesterday morning perusing the Internet for available flights for this week to either Texas or Arizona. I am beyond ready for warmer weather and almost booked a quick getaway with a frequent flier ticket that would have left today. I wouldn't have gotten back 'til after Father's Day, so that wouldn't have been a good plan- to miss Luke's first one. Anyway, I'm glad I didn't book it, because I would have had to drive to Spokane in a snow storm today! That's right, people, I said SNOW! It is June 10, and the ground is covered with snow! It's been snowing since 8:30 this morning!

In other random news, Zane slept in til 8:20 this morning. I was actually able to sleep in til 8 this morning! I can't even remember the last time that has occurred. He usually wakes between 6-7 and I try and wait to go in until 7 as long as he sounds happy. A week or so ago he was even waking as early as 5:30. He has also been pulling himself up on his knees in the crib, so it has been taking him longer to fall asleep before his naps, pushing his naps later,and ultimately pushing his bedtime later. I guess we are in a new phase and I think it may take us a while to figure out his schedule. He had been going to bed around 7, but now it has been between 7-8. Anyway, since I got extra sleep, I have a much better perspective on this crazy weather and for some reason, I'm not at all bothered by it! I put him down for his nap at 11 and he is just now getting up-almost 1 hour and 45 minutes later! He usually only takes 40 minute naps, so this has been nice! Unfortunately, I've not gotten anything done other than this blog post!

Well, here are some pictures of the snow. I think there are a couple of inches that have accumulated! It's supposed to be in the 70s this weekend, so hopefully, summer is right around the corner!

Unbelievable! It's been hot, hot, hot here in New Hampshire! I hope that snow is headed this way :)

Dude. I hear you on the snow. Michigan is no stranger to June snow, though SO FAR we've been safe.

June snow?!?! This Texas girl would NEVER make it in Montana. By February I am counting the days until the time change. :) I enjoy checking up on y'all on your blog. Miss you all. Kiss Zane for me.

Well, I have to say I was just thinking how much I enjoy the Texas sunshine...92 degrees and a cool pool whatelse could I ask for! I have done the Montana snow in June and August...sorry for you - hopefully the beauty of this weekend will make up for the snow yesterday.
