Question ... Your name is Aaron. It's a Sunday afternoon in mid-February. Your wife and toddler are both taking naps. How do you choose to spend "quality time" with your 5 year old?
Answer ... PLAY OUTSIDE IN THE SNOW!!!
Question ... Once the neighborhood kids show up in your driveway to join in the fun, how do you keep them happily occupied?
Answer ... SUGGEST THEY MAKE A SNOW TUNNEL!
As you can see, the garden tools that were given to us have been VERY useful. Thank you, kind woman who gave them! *smile*
Once again proof that WOMEN do the majority of the work around the house.
But if called upon, they can be VERY persuasive to get their brothers to lend a hand!
Ummm - I'm ASSUMING that Alex was "packing down" the snow over there to prepare for a third tunnel???
After all that hard work, it was time for a "distraction break" - after all, they're just kids, and don't drink coffee yet!
Oh! Look at THAT - it was a "rabbit break"!!! YAY! One less rabbit to eat my garden in the Spring! THANK YOU fabulous neighbor dog!
Now, I can't PROVE it, because I was in dreamland, but based on personalities, my guess is that this sweet girl was the chief architect and engineer of the entire tunnel project.
And there's my schmuffin trying out the second tunnel for size!
Kudos, kids, for a job well done!
