Oh Mesquite! It's a few hours drive, but oh how it can make a difference in temperature. There is actually green grass outside, and my kids have not stopped running around except to grab a drink and and some chips. They won't have to mow after we leave for a week or so, because it will be nice and worn down by the stomping of little feet. It's great to feel the sun actually burning my face!! Someone called this morning and said it was 10 below!! Yuck! We braved a pretty fierce snowstorm, and had to be re-routed because of accidents, but the 4WD was awesome and man was I glad to not be in a mini van. So far I've won $2.50, and since I'm not a big gambler, I think that will be safe to say that's what I'll be returning with. Here's to the pool, that's a little too cool, we'll just sit in the sun and further the aging process!!! Long live 60 degrees !!!!! HURRAH!!!!!
