Proverbs 24:3-4

By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

Family Fun Day

Saturday was another Family Fun Day! We have very few Saturdays with no plans and this was a rare occasion! This was a day of firsts! Daddy built an igloo! I was so impressed and video taped most of the build process. I've never seen anyone build and igloo before. It's amazing what perfect blocks a cooler, (an ice chest for you southerners), can make! Eric built the whole thing while the kids were napping. Luke was so excited when he woke up I could hardly get him to stand still to get his snow clothes on. It was a great fun day of building, playing, sledding and just plain enjoying being outside!
Today will be a sad day for Daddy. :-(
I just looked outside and with all the storms from last night, the igloo has been reduced to rubble. This weather is so strange.

I am so glad to hear that you like snow now Jean. I remember winters where you wouldn't go outside!

Next time it snows we need to have the kids check out the hill on our land. At least they would go into a creek instead of nearly going into the road!! So glad you had a fun day.

What a wonderful day of memories made! I remember building many an igloo when we lived in PA, but we rarely get a flurry here.

Oh, and I am working on an email to you, but it has been busy here...

That igloo is pure awesomeness. If I'm ever stuck in the arctic wilderness, I hope I have Eric in my backpack.

JARED- I'd pay money and sell tickets to that show!

Love the Igloo! It is the coolest, and loved the video of the kiddos too! :) Mine have hardly had any sledding at all this year!

The Miers said...

WOW! What a great job Eric did on the igloo. And the kids having fun enjoying, that's priceless.

Loved the video of the kids sledding. I still remember the my one and only time doing that with you guys.

With all the snow, it's a constant reminder of why we live in TX. Btw, it got up into the 80s this week - bring out the shorts!!

Love you,
- Greg
