entertaining ourselves

The official first day of spring has come and gone. Instead of sunshine and tulips and pussy willows we got snowstorms, busses cancelled and the flu at our house. On Monday night one of our neighbours came over in his tractor and ploughed our yard out - for which we are grateful. I would still be digging if he hadn't come over.
The boys love it when the tractor comes because he makes snow "mountains" in the yard. Unfortunately, on Tuesday Max was sick enough that he became "still" - which means he was REALLY sick.
Sometime in the afternoon he perked up a bit, partially (we think) because the sun came out for the first time in five days and the wind stopped blowing. It was actually nice enough to go outside - which he promptly requested to do.
So out we went.
His tummy still was bothering him because he asked if we could go for a "wiggle walk" but then changed his mind because he didn't feel so hot. So we entertained ourselves on the mountains outside the back door.
