snow day

on Friday night snow began and when we woke up Saturday morning we were in the middle of a winter wonderland. Connor AND Byron were thrilled and both began preparing for the day' sactivities out in the snow. Kylene was so happy to be part of the fun and Byron carried her around as they walked and explored. After about 20 minutes she was done, and we watched the boys while we stayed warm and snug.
Connor came in and out to warm up, dry out his gloves, and drink some hot chocolate before heading back out. Byron stayed out for 5 hours straight working on...
THIS.
It's amazing. There are better pictures coming. Both Byron and Connor can climb inside and Connor can stand up in it. Kylene could see them from our bedroom window, so I put the chair up to the window, gave her a sippy cup and a bowl of gold fish and she stood there watching them work while I worked on dinner. Byron said he felt like he was on a TV show with Kylene viewing them like that. :)

That is dang cool. I showed my kids and they were so jealous. Props to Byron for the snow fort, and you for the darling pictures.

Byron, you are the man! How lucky is Connor to have a Dad like you. He will remember this day forever. Way to build fond and lasting memories.

Dad is right, Connor will have happy memories of this day the rest of his life. Way to go, Byron, for being such a fun, active Dad!

I agree with Randy and Sandra. Connor will have these memories for a lifetime. But I wonder who had more fun?!!! I remember a similar fort in MI. It was so big, I was afraid it would collapse on all of you.
