Winter came late this year. We had a pretty mild winter until the beginning of February and then the temperature dropped to highs in the teens. It was pretty miserable. I was so happy when the temperature finally reached thirty degrees. We also didn't get a lot of snow that stuck until this month. The kids have loved being able to go sledding and playing in the snow. We have built a few snowman and made lots of snow angels and snow cakes.
Today is Fashing Deinstag (or Fat Tuesday in the US). Simon actually gets this day off of work. We spent the morning at the Natural History museum here in Munich. It is modest, but the kids loved it. Conley kept saying "more more" and Auburn wanted to know what everything was. They have also loved having Daddy home on a Tuesday. Apparently there are lots of carnival celebrations downtown, but we decided that taking naps this afternoon was a better choice.
