Welcome Spring (snow)

First of all you should know winter snow in ND is not fun.  It is the consistency of sand, not good for packing or playing in and it is far to cold in Jan and Feb to be out for longer than 5 minutes.  Second you should know that spring snow in ND is fun.  It is packable and finally warm enough to be outside.  The problem with spring snow is that by the middle of April NO ONE wants to be outside playing in snow. 

Yesterday we had a spring storm and I decided that despite the LONG list of things to do to get ready for the move, we were going to build a snowman and play in the snow. So I took a snow day of sorts. We went out to build a snowman and also built a snow fort to snowball Dad when he got home from work, and the kids when they got off the bus. My arm is sore today from snowballing. I think it was worth it.

Playing with the sled.

Using the fort for cover.

Dad just home from work.

It snowed ALL day.  It's a good thing I hadn't put away the snow clothes yet.

After all that playing we had to make some carrot cupcakes in honor of our snow day.
