It snowed!

Finally! We had the first (and probably only) big snowfall of the season. We went sledding in the park, we made snow angels, we watched the snowplows clear the streets, and we learned the all-important rule of not playing in the yellow snow... It was like a Currier and Ives scene. Totally.

This book should come with a warning: "WARNING: If you purchase Richard Scarry's 'Cars and Trucks and Things That Go' for your child before they are old enough to realize that cats and alligators could not possibly drive front-end loaders and that there is no such thing as a pickle car, you may be required to not only read it to them 8 times a day, but to explain every little detail on every single page every single time you do. And believe me, this book has more details on its 69 FULL pages than you could ever possibly imagine."
