Is YOUR Dad this cool?!?

Eric must be the coolest dad around... at least around these parts. I tried to build Eva a quinzee a month ago or so, but we promptly experienced a warm spell and the snow pile didn't last long. Fast forward to this week: we had a good dump of snow on Thursday afternoon, so that evening Eric made a huge mountain of snow. Then on Friday night, he and Eva dug out their snow cave. It is complete with a porch (just a porch roof, really) and a air pipe. My mom came over that night and she and Eva had a little pow wow in the dark snow cave with a candle. How cute!

Then our friend N'Korey came over to play on Saturday, and he and Eva were in and out for quite awhile. Who knows where their imaginations took them!
Sometimes, I just want to be a kid again...

I also feel the strong need to defend my own dad...he built many a forts, and he even built a sledding ramp through our backyard after shoveling the driveway. NEVERTHELESS, Eric is pretty darn cool I would say. What a great way to honor him in this Becca. I am almost to have kids and be as great a mom as you!
