A celebration nearly 150 years in the making

Posted: 05 Feb 2014 09:02 PM PST

In what will go down as the largest celebration since the town of Seattle incorporated nearly 150 years ago, the new Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks took their victory lap through the city streets today. Officials estimate the crowds along the 2 mile parade route to be nearly 750,000 people - almost 100, 000 more than actually live in the city proper. Interestingly, Seattle Police have reported that not one arrest was made during the 3+ hour parade. The fans affectionately known here as the '12th Man' journeyed from all over the Pacific NW and points far beyond to cheer on their team and coaches - and from the looks of them an equally incredible time was had by all. As a life long resident of Seattle area and huge fan of the Hawks, I have never seen the city so incredible ecstatic and downright giddy as I have in the last few days. It really has been a long time coming - thank you Seahawks!

Backyard Fun- 200 ft. Wooden Sled Run

Posted: 05 Feb 2014 05:05 PM PST

Every year I spend 2 months building a giant 200 ft. sled run for 100+ kids in my small town. Every year I take it down upon my wife's request. It's all worth it when you see the joy it brings the kids in this video.

No Snow Day for NYC Kids

Posted: 05 Feb 2014 01:42 PM PST

So I woke up this morning to the sound of freezing rain on my window, I though for sure there would be no school today, but I soon learned that this was not so for NYC kids.

So I got my son ready and we headed out with much trepidation. As I expected it was icy and our block was not plowed even though it is Riverside Dr. Once we got to the end of the block we were surprised to see a school bus blocking traffic in both directions on the 158th st hill coming off the exit for the West Side Highway. This is a major exit for ambulances going to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. What appeared to us is that the bus was trying to make it up the hill, and was probably slipping to much. While trying to get more traction, the bus slid back on to the sidewalk barely missing two trees. It was stuck there. We could not tell if there were kids inside yet, because of the tinted windows. It was 8 AM already so there were probably some kids.

On another corner there was a cab that had stopped to pick up a passenger and got stuck. He attempted to dig himself out with no success and then attempted to push himself out to no avail. We had to leave for school, but both of these vehicles were still stuck when we headed to the 1 train.

We thought our commute would be smooth sailing from there, but then the train went out at 103rd St. Trains were stuck in both directions with no estimate when they would be back up and running. Luckily we were only one stop away and got off and walked. Lucky for us, but maybe not so lucky for lots of other NYC kids.

What kind of weather will close down schools in NYC?

2 year old skier

Posted: 05 Feb 2014 01:26 PM PST

My husband, and I met on the ski team in college 17 years ago. Skiing has always been a big part of our lives, so we've been eager to get our first child, Parker, out there with us. Last year, at 1.5, we took him out for the first time. He'd been walking for about 6 months at the time, but really took to skiing from the start. This year, we were able to drop any harnesses and other aids and let him take off on his own. He can now ski, turn and stop on his own on both green and blue (intermediate) trails. He loves riding the chairlift, riding the gondola, looking for powder stashes and keeping an eye out for Mammoth's skiing mascot, Wooly.

Refugees flee South Sudan violence

Posted: 05 Feb 2014 07:06 AM PST

These photos were taken by World Vision staff as they respond to the flood of people fleeing the violence in South Sudan. Thousands of refugees are pouring into Kenya's Kakuma refugee camp, with 300-400 people arriving daily. More than 5,000 children have come into the camp so far. Aid workers are seeing many arriving by themselves, having been separated from their parents.

"It is a scene of desperation as the refugees arrive at the border, relieved to have finally arrived to a safe place. They look frail and exhausted, a reflection of just how the journey was long and grueling," said Lucy Murunga, a World Vision emergency communicator who works with refugees in the camp.

The refugee's first stop at the camp is the reception center. There they receive food, water and basic supplies like a tent, a sleeping mat and soap. Many have fled with nothing. World Vision one of the many aid organizations assisting refugees in the camp, providing food assistance for the daily arrivals.
