a phoenix snow day

thoughtful and original G.G. ordered snow for the kids in honor of the three march birthdays in the family (jack, luke and ruby).  we had scones, eggs, donuts, coffee, bagels, fruit and then some, as well as a whole crowd of kids climbing on, sliding down, throwing and eating snow.  it was a grand time.  for some reason my camera only made it out before everyone else got there and after they all left, so it looks like only my kids, but i assure you, we had quite a crowd.   



finn was very excited to practice his snowboarding skills on real snow...



i did manage to snap a quick picture of my sweet and smiley little Godson, declan...


after all the kids were on their way, baabee and grandad stopped by and came up with all sorts of new fun to be had in the snow.  like sledding on a shovel "it's-a-wonderful-life style"...


my own personal highlight was when baabee decided to give it a try...


grandad and baabee also dug a nice tunnel through the entire middle of the snow heap and then made up a game in which you lay on a cookie tray (it started as an old pizza box) and get pulled through by the handle of the shovel.  


and, of course, jack was thrilled to bust out his new legos and create a scene on the ice planet, hoth...


thanks again, GG!
