Snow babies

We don't get a lot of snow in Edinburgh, or even a lot of seriously cold weather, but it's chilly just now - freezing-ish. Yesterday the children played in the garden. Here, Grandson makes a snowcastle with a bucket and spade from the sandpit.

And so does Oldest Granddaughter. Then -

she JUMPS on it.

Playing in the sand is quite a common activity here - we're on the coast - but playing in the snow is a novelty.

Predictably, Grandson makes roads.

We combine forces to make an extremely small and somewhat sinister snowman.

And Oldest Granddaughter, who has a heart-shaped bucket, makes a snowheart.

Such fun.


  1. Just enough snow for your Grands to have fun and make memories. Lovely. Patty Mc

  2. I remember having fun with snow at their age!

  3. I can remember thinking snow was so great when I was a kid because we lived in an area that never got it. But now unless it's in pictures I don't care for it at all.

  4. Perfect amount of snow because too much is a real pain!

  5. There hasn't been a decent snowfall yet for our granddaughter but they scraped together a miniscule snowman from the ice on a park bench which made me hoot.
    I love yours with the wry smile. It's as if the snowman knows that it is not quite up to scratch.

  6. A lovely post, thank you. Your snowman is funny!

  7. Nothing better than a play in the snow. That snowman does remind me of someone, just not sure who..

  8. Awwww, how fun -- I'll bet the children were thrilled!!!
