Lil Man loves (and needs) to play outside!! He has so much energy all the time so it's very important that he has appropriate clothing and opportunities to be outside. Last year we built a snow fort in our front yard, this year we've now done two in our back yard. the first one was really basic, but it was fun and Lil Man played outside for hours in his fort, it even had a garage!!
The second snow fort was built thanks to our neighbours and their snow blower!! So the neighbour kids came over and snow blowed our yard into a pile and then Lil Man got to build in that fort. We missed the good days for tunnel digging and there was some freezing rain and melting so it became more of a hill, but Lil Man still loved it!!
