Build it and they will come.

Finally, a really wet snow you can DO something with came our way this week! And with PJ running to the door with his boots anytime he hears mention of "outside" it was easy to take three happy campers out to play.
We built: a snow slide for PJ, a sled run, a snowman, a thoughtful spot for Lena and a defense wall for Jack.

We also headed to the largest snow hill within our view and had a contest to see who could push snow boulders down the farthest. I'm still learning it doesn't take much to occupy them, but it usually takes an adult. They are far happier when Paul or I are out there to instruct in the reindeer games. Left on their own, their enthusiasm dwindles.
