Snowy Mountain

We've had a lot of snow lately and with Thursday and Friday being snowdays from school, followed by a weekend, the kids had four days off and a lot of free time to play in the snow. I spent a good chunk of time over those days shoveling snow off the deck. And why do that you ask? Some strange impulse for a clean deck? Worry about the weight of snow collapsing or damaging the deck? An urge to exercise?

No! Don't be silly! The kids wanted a snow mountain to play on! So I shoveled and shoveled and shoveled, pounds and pounds and pounds of snow off the deck and over the edge and created a nice big snow mountain. It's close enough to the deck that the kids can climb on the bench and throw themselves over the edge, sliding down the mountain on their bellies and half way across the yard. It's super fun just to watch them on it! Lots of giggling, squealing and laughter. What fun!
