Kids and Canines Enjoy the Nice Weather

Posted: Updated:

The beautiful weather couldn't have come at a better time.

Students have the day off of school today for President's day.

Many of them spent their time sledding at JC Park.

It was so nice out some people weren't even wearing coats.

Some of the kids say they've only gotten to go sledding one or two times this winter because it's been so cold.

"I'm really happy that we have President's Day because I like to play outside most of the time in the winter except for when it's really cold out...I like surfing on the snow with a sled," the Marquardt's and Berthiaume's said.

Students aren't the only ones having a little fun today.

The Century Bark Park was also a busy place.

Many of the owners say their dogs have been cooped up in the house, and that today was a perfect opportunity for them to burn off some energy.

"I'm not working today. I'm a teacher so I had the day off and I got my errands done this morning and now it was her turn to get outside and get some fresh air, get some exercise," Lea Geis said.
