Fun in the Snow - Part, um, part 6?

Another snow storm blew into town so we went out for more fun in the snow. We decided to use the block maker Winston got for Christmas (Steff keeps asking me if it really was for Winston or if I just wanted it. Of course it was for him. I just had to show him how to use it.) and build a snow fort.

What ended up happening was Dad and Mom tried to build the fort, while Winston and Charlie made snow angels, played on the swingset, and tried to demolish the craftiness of their parents.

Charlie only had eyes for his swingset


Bored kids abandoning the fort project


In the end, the fort didn't quite make the cut. We were about 4 feet tall and all of a sudden (thanks Charlie) the wall fell over. At that point we abandoned the fort and went for snowman heads on the fence. Best we could do.

The Great Collapse


Our only alternative


Fun in the snow is so invigorating

I wish we had snow in Iowa that would actually form some sort of ball so that you could build something! Looks like a lot of fun. Hey as far as potty training goes I bought Sam "Cars" underwear (he's obsessed) and that started the potty revolution for us! Good luck!

Hey, I quite like the snowman heads! Looks like you had a fun day. Wore you right out matt. Dad's are always the first to go right?!
