A Snowy, above zero weekend had taken our son and his ' Threesome' outdoors for some fun. When Andy was a boy, he, his brothers and cousins dug at least one snow fort every winter.
This year, there is the least amount of snow to work with for our northern WI county, but it has not halted tradition.
Andy and his three sons dug in from one side to the other of what was pushed with the plow. Already, there is a request to Papa ( Grandpa ), for more snow to be piled on top so they can dig higher, making for easier travel through the tunnel.
There is digging with shovels, and digging with hands,
kicking the snow loose with feet, and pulling more out with arms and hands and snow tools.
No matter how it's done, sooner or later, the tunnel gets dug.
Because of the cold noses, fingers, and ' toes-es,'
The digging ended after just 15 minutes.
We already know the first place the kids will want to go next weekend~
It will be to finish the fort. Papa promised to add more snow.
The weatherman promised warmer weather, and Grandma promised more hot cocoa with peppermint sticks.
It's been s-now much fun!!!
On with another chore.
I had squash that still needed something done with them so, after cleaning out the cavities and filling with butter and brown sugar, I baked them off in the oven this morning.
The house smells like pumpkin pie, so that will be next, only Squash Pies.
You all have a wonderful day.
