Snow Fun

I know that getting fresh air on a daily basis is a good thing. Not only for me, but for the kiddos.
But somehow I am not managing to make sure it's happening.

The girls take walks to the library or to sister's house. Or wherever. So it is not a lost cause altogether. But my little guy? He heads outside on command to do the 20 minute quota thing, but it is no fun for him whatsoever with no one to play with. He's just that kind of guy. Likes aparty -- a group activity -- you know, someone to run around with. Alright, alright -- I'll say it. He's a sanguine type.

Our front yard boasts a very large snow fort these days. Every wall is well-fortified after all this snowfall. Fort Sinclair begs to see skirmishes, battles, a few full-blown snowball fights with defensive and offensive maneuvers well carried out. There's plenty of room for an entire brigade with full arsenal! But it hasn't seen much use. Somehow he just doesn't know what to do out there all alone.

Mom's answer? A play day with buddies! Actual bodies running and playing and throwing snowballs and plotting strategies -- this will be too much fun!

Hopefully I will have enough hot chocolate to keep them all happy! (And I'll try to get some photos for you CA relatives!)

*EDIT

Here are some photos!

Ah...I have fond memories of building forts and snowball warring to protect those forts from the kids across the street! What an absolutely perfect day for a kid!!!!

Christian and Nathaniel came home with lots of fun stories! What a blast! Not to mention, they slept like logs.
Thanks, :-)
