Instead he got a sick niece yesterday and then pummelled by snowballs today. In the scheme of things, not what we planned but, in terms of the snowball fight, very good fun.
I have no photos of the snowball fight as I just might have been actively involved. I do have my brother helping Emily in fort construction, growing up in Canada having made him an expert advisor.
Helen industriously got on with snowman making safely out of shot of their snowballs.
I darted back and forth
Now, I just need the roads to not freeze tonight as my brother and I are supposed to be taking my dad out for dinner, to celebrate him turning 80.
Sounds like great fun. I hope you have a lovely birthday dinner with your dad.ReplyDelete
Sounds like loads of fun! Be careful if you drive down to see him tonight, but hope you have a great time! :o)ReplyDelete
Hope you make your Dad's dinner - my own dad almost got stuck in NI yesterday. We have had about 2 flakes here! *blinks*ReplyDelete
Looks tonnes of fun, and way better than the 24hrs of rain and sleet we have had.ReplyDelete
Hope the roads are clear for you.
Stay warm xxx
Now that's much better! Too bad about ailing niece, she just can't catch a break.ReplyDelete
How was it, having a taste of a "real" winter? We're working our way around in at least a meter of snow! The kids had Thursday and Friday off because of snow! Funny, I thought it was suppose to be the first few days of spring?
Enjoy Dad and remember steer into the skid not away from it, just in case.
Looks just like Saskatchewan....except ours lasts 6-8 months LOLReplyDelete
Love the snow face!! Hope you have a happy birthday dinner with your Dad :)ReplyDelete
I think I am more intrigued by the fact that three Canucks from the same family live in Blighty rather than the mass of snow!ReplyDelete
Sounds like fun. I ventured out in the wind and snow and then have stayed warm and cosy all dayReplyDelete
Come up north, there's no snow here! There is a bitter wind, though, so bring your thermals ;o)ReplyDelete
Lovely happy post Susan and happy birthday to your dad!ReplyDelete
Looks like you guys made the best of your changing plans. I can hear your laughter echoing over here. Have fun with your bro and hope you make it to celebrate your dad's birthday lunch tomorrow!ReplyDelete
Happy birthday to your dad and hope you have a lovely dinner! As much as I love snow I am happy now to see the daffodils!ReplyDelete
I am so envious right now! Wish I had snow to throw...hope dinner happened and that your Dad loved it.ReplyDelete
Happy Birthday Susan's Dad!ReplyDelete
An impromptu snowball fight sounds like a lot of fun.
good practice if you move back to Canada!ReplyDelete
Looks a lot of fun!
I hope you managed to get out tonight with your family! JxoReplyDelete
A snowball fight sounds like fun! We have been seeing the reports of your bad weather on the news so I hope you were able to go out to dinner with your dad.ReplyDelete
Bwahaha, love the snow smiley, hope you had a great dinner!ReplyDelete
what a great day. I hope the evening was just as funReplyDelete
Looks like you've had lots of fun, despite the change of plans.ReplyDelete
Hope you've had a lovely evening too.
Looks like a lot of fun. I hope that the birthday dinner was good too. Di xReplyDelete
Looks like lots of fun! Hope you had a lovely dinner :)ReplyDelete
Holy Whack-a-Mole that's a lot of snow! Ours is almost gone and the temps are now consistently above zero. I'm sorry. :PReplyDelete
Goodness! Still, it looks like you guys are having a great time! Happy birthday, Dad!ReplyDelete
No it's wrong to have snow like this in the UK this close to Easter :-)ReplyDelete
It seems that folks everywhere are finding snow at the weirdest times. We've had more snow this year than we have in a long time and even though we had a couple weeks of melt-weather, we got even more snow this month and it's up to my chest from the door to the back fence. Just insane. Even for Canada.ReplyDelete
Glad to know your daughter has proper fort instructors. :-)
looks like you had a brilliant time. I kept using your pics to explain to Jake why we couldn't go and visit his nanny.ReplyDelete
oh what good fun xReplyDelete
Looks like great fun, but I wish you some sunshine and warmer weather soon! Have your whole family moved to the UK? We celebrated my Mum's 60th on the weekend too.ReplyDelete
