Snow Mountain

It keeps snowing. . .and snowing. . .and snowing! It will take F-O-R-E-V-E-R for the snow to melt in our backyard since it gets tons of shade from our neighbors large tree and all the surrounding garages. You can still walk straight out from our porch to the snow which is kind of convenient for the kids I'd have to admit. I decided it was such a  beautiful snow day that we needed to play outside again. We were going to try and build a fort but I couldn't find our large bucket in the garage, then I thought it would be fun to make a hill (or snow mountain as Brady called it:) It was fun to do and the kids helped pack in the snow and get a couple pitchers of water from inside to help ice it up. We tried garbage bags to slide on first which worked pretty good but were hard for them to sit or lay on without help. Then Brady thought of the slip-n-slide mats we have and the rest is history! Thankfully we spent a couple hours and not the 15-30 min they sometime spend after the 5-10 min getting all geared up. They had a blast so we had to capture it on camera. What a gorgeous day! Hopefully the inversion will stay away for at least a couple days anyways. We'll have to see how the 'snow mountain' holds up:)
