So there is snow on the ground and nothing open and no one at work....Jacob, who can barely contain his excitement about the powder day, is just itching to play in the white stuff and comes up with a bright idea...
"Let's build a snow castle!"
"Sure," I say only half serious, "we can use loaf pans and make bricks and make it real big."
Next thing I know my bakeware gets raided and Jacob is on the phone recruiting help...Matthew can't say no especially after we mention beer and cookies (the emergency supplies you have to have on a snow day)
Two hours later, almost all our friend from Ultimate freesbee are gathered to supervise the final touches to Dinkins Manor, which sits in our front yard and is now stopping traffic.
It's been a good day so far.
