Snow Fort!

I think it's safe to say that every parent in the Baltimore area is collectively tired of snow, right? It feels like ages since any of my kids went to a full week of school and although the driveways and roads are fairly clear now, I don't think we will be seeing the grass any time soon.

In the plus column, this is amazing packing snow. Everytime I check my Facebook feed it seems to be full of creative snow sculptures (Apparently I have rather creative Facebook friends). 

I can take no credit for the snowfort that appeared in our front yard. It kept Dave and the kids (mostly Jacob) busy for hours. They packed snow into plastic bins to form the blocks.

The roof proved to be a little challenging, but it's rather sturdy for now.

And don't forget furniture. They added a chair, table and even a bed that has a little snow pillow.

These two have moved in. I'll miss them, but hopefully they will visit soon.
