Seth loves snow forts and snowballs, especially if I build the fort.
Winter has finally landed with a thud...literally almost. I think the snow landed all in one moment with a thud. I went to bed at midnight on Sunday night and when I awoke at 6:00am there was a ton of snow sitting in our driveway. When my son woke up he couldn't wait to get outside and play. I love that he loves winter time and his youth keeps me young.
The two in one fort/sliding hill near the driveway is a family favorite, after a talk about safety near the road.
After a modest breakfast of toast and cereal we layered up and went out to do battle with the blowing snow. My son saying to his mother "Mom! Dad and I are going outside so he can shovel the driveway and I can throw snowballs at him!" Which he did while telling me where to pile the snow higher to make a fort and sliding hill...which I did. It was a great morning but already this winter I have broken a shovel and am extremely sore from shovelling the driveway not once, not twice, but three times in one day.
I am not sure why but it seems to be winter time when my son and I have the most fun together. We camp in the summer but he doesn't seem to get the same enjoyment out of it. Maybe because I don't let him throw rocks at me :)
