Just because this is probably a different kind of spring playtime than what some of the rest of you are experiencing, I thought I'd post these pictures.
The snow on our deck finally thawed enough to make some playable space for the boys. They really liked chopping it into pieces with their "axes" (gardening trowels). This day happened to be nice and warm (well - warm if you were wearing winter coats, hats and gloves!) so I went out to nurse the Little Sweetie in the sun while the boys played.
Here's O Boy testing the strength of the snow. He has no idea that it is so soft...
And that he'll fall in up to his waist!
