Good Day for a Snowball Fight

We got down safely from the western slope, in spite of some icy roads, and several office party evacuees who weaved their happy, oblivious, hazardous ways up the mountains Friday afternoon. (Hope they all made it to their destinations and didn't cause any accidents, the buggers!) In spite of them, with God's help to be sure, we made it over to the Uncompaghre Valley, loaded up the playset, and got it safely back down to eastern Colorado. It may be a week or two until we get it all put back together, but the kids don't need it to be assembled to have fun with it.

Note the first snowball fight of the season pictured below. They actually preferred to have the roof lying sideways on the ground as it made a very handy barricade for Cathy and Theresa. See their piles of ammunition? I tried to get some action shots, but we were losing light and my camera shied away from the oncoming snowballs...

These two shots of the little boys were taken before the sun started to sink. Their play was decidedly more tame than their sisters.

Ah, snow. Do you know I have never felt snow?

Here in South Australia we dont get snow. Right now its muggy and hot. Hopefully it will cool down later:).

Such happy pictures, enjoy the snow it looks like fun.

Peace & JOY to you:)

I love your pictures!! My kids always keep a stockpile of ammunition ready so that at a moments notice they can attack!
