Fun with Munchkin: Winter Fun

As part of my resolutions for 2016, I wanted to do more fun things with Munchkin and as a family.  I will be posting sporadically about some of the fun adventures we are having together.
We have had a rather odd winter so far here in Rhode Island, some mild days, some spring like days, some snowy days and some bitter cold.  One thing is that for a change we have been a relatively cold free house (yes I am knocking on wood). So when we got snow Munchkin finally got to go out and play! (Unfortunately, I haven't been allowed to play with him due to the sprained ankle but him and Hubby certainly had some fun).
The first storm only gave us some really light fluffy snow that wasn't great for snowman making but we tried anyway. 

Munchkin also made sure the sidewalk and deck were clear of snow so Momma wouldn't slip again.
Our second snow storm yielded much better snowman snow so once again Hubby and Munchkin made a much better snowman (he only lasted a couple of days then he was melted by the near 60 degree weather and rain).

And of course what snow day would be complete without sledding.  We have a small hill in our side yard and into our neighbor's backyard (and they luckily adore Munchkin and welcome him to come over and play). Of course Hubby got tasked with hauling him back up the hill each time, I guess this ankle thing isn't working out so bad for me.

We would love to see your winter fun too! Have you built a snowman, gone sledding or made a fort?


  1. Makes me want to be a kid again. We got tons of snow this year but it's starting to look like spring is coming. Good thing too because I'm getting sick of winter!

    1. We have had such a mild winter, it kind of scares me that it is going to either really dump on us or we will have a horrible summer. Munchkin did have a lot of fun and it was fun watching him!
