A Visit from Grandpa Michael and Aunt Betsy!

We had a great five day visit from my dad and Aunt Betsy! They traveled by Greyhound bus on a 13+ hour ride from Seattle.  The roads have been covered with snow and ice with our -40 degree cold spell, and taking the bus was a good alternative to driving. While they were here, it warmed up a bit to around -12, and the skies were sunny and blue! We enjoyed showing them around town, sledding (or sliding as they say here :), Sunday morning church, x-country skiing and ice skating with Jackson and Chloe's grade 2 and kindergarten classes!

Sliding at Dead Man's Hill (if you look close there's actually three different hills)
 Jack and Chloe at the top!

Even Lucy joined in the fun!
