It is Still Winter!!!

We feel like we have traveled into a whole other world or season.  We left La Paz on March 10th in flip flops and shorts and flew north.  Bill flew to San Carlos, picked up his truck and headed north.  He spent a night in Park City with Andy and his family, even getting to celebrate Emma’s 5th birthday with her.  He then continued north to Calgary and is now digging out his long johns to finish the winter in Canmore, Alberta.

I flew to Boston to be with Whitney and the birth of her baby.  She had to bring a coat for me to the airport as it was about 19 degrees!  It stayed that cold and snowed off and on pretty much the whole time I was there.  I had to shed the flip flops for boots, the shorts for levis, and wear a hat and gloves whenever I went outside.

Luckily, Whitney’s baby was in no hurry to arrive as she and Jason had just bought a new house and were madly trying to paint and lay new flooring before she arrived. (Thank heavens for their great friends who put in so much time helping do all this!)

Finally, a week late, at 1:00 a.m. Saturday, March 21, 2015, little Miss Kennedy Josephine Cardosi entered the world at 7 lbs. 11oz. and 21 inches long. I was so happy to be able to stay until April 1 to help them move into their new home and bring Kennedy home.

I flew to Salt Lake City/Park City excited that the weather would be spring like.  Joke was on me, the temperature dropped to freezing and it snowed a couple of inches the first night there.  It has remained cold since. However, I am having a great time with family, celebrating Easter with an Easter Egg hunt and a family brunch!

So, I am settled into a lovely condo on the Park City golf course and a block from the ski resort until June 23, when I fly to Calgary and spend 6 weeks in Canada.  Admittedly the boat is small and a little too cozy at times.  Bill and I were together 24/7 and both of us were looking forward to a little break but that lasted only a few days and the 3 months apart seems really long, we do miss each other!!!

The weather continues to be cold, in fact, on April 15, Salt Lake was hit with the ‘storm of the winter’.  I awoke to 21 degrees and snow!!

Bill is struggling with the same weather in Canmore!  Will it ever be spring?  At least we can whine together via Skype!  Luckily, my friend Karen Dean stopped by for a few days on her way to Kalispell, Montana from having spent the winter in Lake Havasu.  Our sons always worry that we will get into trouble but we always have a grand time together!
