At dusk my Dad pulled up with a trailer full of snow that he had hauled down from the mountains. He called me only a mere hour before he came by so it turned out to be such a spontaneous and fun treat for the children. In fact it attracted the attention of neighbors who couldn't help but come on over and join in the fun. Yes my kids are barefoot playing with snow in our 60 degree weather and loving every minute of it. When they came to the door they were all dirty, cold and wet so they were immediately stripped and put into the warm tub. That was when I was glad that this would be the only snow we'd see in our neighborhood all winter long.
Hooray for fun people like my Dad.

Hooray for the weekend.

Hope it is a fun one for all of you.

Now there's a money making idea! Park a dozen tailers in the mountains and wait till it snows. Bring them down when they're full of snow and charge. You could call it "Portable Snow...brought right to your front yard!". Cute!

Christina - what a great idea! I love it. Your dad is wonderful. BTW, I love that guestroom post and I also LOVE that drink stick prism ball idea. Too clever. I might have to copy you. now I'm trying to think of other fun things you could stick into a styrofoam ball to make accessories out of.

You're dad is a celebrity! Ivy came home from school and told me about her friend who has a neighbor with an awesome grandpa. She was super jealous.

What fun! I love that idea. We have plenty of snow here, but I can only imagine how magical that moment would be when you live in a warm climate!
