The snow is melting, really shrinking lower and lower, but we still have drifts in our backyard and so today while Jack was napping, Joey and I went out to fill the bird feeders and see what fun we could find.
Joey filled the bird feeders all by himself. I stood the feeder in the pail of seed and he scooped the seed up and poured it in. "I didn't spill a drop!" he said. And he didn't.
On the way to hang the bird feeders, we stopped by the base of the tree so that Joey could see the incredibly hollow insides.
We followed the trunk to the tangle of branches and found our way inside of them. Once the bird feeders were in place, Joey grasped the imaginative possibilties.
"Let's make this our snow cave!" he said.
We gathered pine needles to make our rug
The lower log was to serve as Joey's bed.
The big log was the sofa. Behind it Joey said we should put the fireplace.
And blew carefully on them to cool them...He pretended to eat them saying, "when we're done with these marshmallows, there's lots more growing all over this snow cave!
When Jack awoke, he preferred revisiting his long lost childhood! He got himself in, very pleased with himself.
In Clare's exersaucer, he tried every single toy.
And when he wanted, he climbed right out and went back to playing cars.
