Fun has been found where we can, even with the snow...
|Our big kids and a bunch of neighborhood kids set up two different "forts" in the massive piles of snow pushed from the street. They could throw snow balls back and forth at each other.|
|Hard to tell but one group is way on the left behind that hill and another on the right. It was cute. |
You know, in a battle cries/launching snow balls/plotting ambushes sort of way.
|Taryn started digging a tunnel and daddy stepped in and helped.|
|Soon it went all the way through to the other side of the pile.|
|So then she started digging the other direction through the tunnel to dig out a cave.|
|Till she popped out under the wagon handle that had been buried and we forgot was under there.|
|So now there were three exits through the cave.|
|Friend London inside.|
|She asked if she could sleep there. Yeah, sure, baby. Looks super comfy.|
|New sleds. Or maybe more like snowboards. Only you don't stand on them. Sled boards? Sloards?|
|On day 4 we were able to make an escape to my parent's ranch. |
Of course, there is always fun to be had there.
|Z and Z2. Her hat is accurate.|
|this hill was on one side of the dam. It made for some good sledding for our age kiddos. |
Long but not too steep. The walk back up wasn't too hard for them.
|The 2 year olds were not convinced that what we were doing was an appropriate activity.|
So they got put up there.
|Papa pushing Taryn.|
|Daddy trying to convince Z2 to live a little.|
|Pouting B and me.|
|Big Z zooming down.|
|My dad's still a kid at heart.|
|She's informing me that there is snow on her glove. A first.|
|And angel made by my Taryn.|
|And, here's the real reason we went to my parents to play. B/c dune buggies, four-wheelers, sleds and snow walking makes for 5 blessedly tired little ones. Cutest. Thing. Ever.|
|We also had to make a batch of snow ice cream. Can't ignore that snow-day must.|
|When cooking in our kitchen one must hurry. There is always cause for concern of an ambush.|
|Thankfully, this day, there was no blood-shed in the demand for food. |
All were pacified by their snow ice cream creation....with chocolate syrup of course!
