That's not what Dave had in mind. He cleared off almost the whole yard (which had a LOT of snow!) to make this:
Nathaniel was so proud of "his castle" that he immediately wanted me to help him bundle up so he could go out and show me his fortress.
Alex was up by now so he got to go out and check it out, too. I love when the weather in Western NY actually allows us to get snow, and get outside to enjoy it. It's a rarity!
Nate was so proud to show off the castle "he" and Daddy had made.
Even Avery got in on the fun!
I do love winter through the eyes of my children! But I also look forward to getting to take them outside without the 20 minutes of bundling up that's required first!
