Erin Laney, an eighth-grader at Basehor-Linwood Middle School, and Vince Ballard of Tulsa, Okla., serve up shaved ice at the Basehor Fourth of July celebration. Ballard was in town visiting his grandmother, Mary Ellen Ballard.
Shovel your driveway and paths, check neighbors’ driveways and then grab all your closest little ones and find the biggest sledding hill. Snowmen also are a must. Snow days are a great time to catch up on missed shows and much-needed rest. I love snowdays, they haven’t changed one bit even as an adult, although I am sure not all working adults can say that, but I am happy I can. I was excited to see the snowmen and other snow sculptures throughout the Lawrence and Kansas City metro areas.
