This past weekend we went down to Fairmont to celebrate Christmas with Darin’s family. We had a wonderful time and the kids, of-course, loved playing with their cousins. They even braved the cold and wind to head out on the lake to build a fort. And I even braved the cold and wind to take some photos.
I feel like the fort days are fleeting, so I wanted to capture them. Capture them creating in the cold before they are teenagers and just want to sit inside on their electronic devices. Although part of me hopes they will always want to go out there. Maybe not for fort building, but maybe to just take a walk on the edge of the frozen lake, or take the dog for a run, or just enjoy the fresh air with their mom. I’m trying to foster a love for the outdoors in them, even in the cold. I hope and pray it for them.
So here they are fort building, along with a cute little niece and her sled. :)
