they went

in the playhouse

down the slide

in the hollow log

in the sandbox

climbed up

jumped down

made footprints and snow angels

roamed on dinosaur island

played tag

went to a party

 loved the snow

they all had a such a good time and were worn out.

“my son’s always showing me pictures of dinosaurs and asking me what their names are.

i don’t know, so i make stuff up:

that, son is a thesaurus.”

fancy water.

kinder happily samples the first batch of playground snow

it ‘tastes like fancy water.’

everything.
