Well, it took most of the winter in Hamilton, which was, as true winters go, mostly a flop. But the snow FINALLY came in the last couple of weeks.
It's already melting, but when it came down and in the days following, my son and I had some fun working on and playing in Fort Alexander 2010.
And FUN is what it's all about for 5 year olds and 40 year olds alike . . .
FYI, on the little "Fort Alexandr" sign we made, there are a few images. On the left there's a sign indicating that snowmen of all types, including those with ears, as Alexander likes to draw them, are welcome (we're an inclusive sort of clubhouse).
And on the right there's an icon indicating that "no grumps are allowed"
