We had big plans today to go on a “Winter’s Walk” this afternoon. The elementary school kids did a trek last week and we thought it would be a fun thing to recreate on a super sunny Sunday – it was a stunningly beautiful day. However as we were getting ready to go – the little girl from next door asked if my daughter would like to come over and play in her IGLOO.
I think it is important for me to stop right now and formally apologize to every nice tourist who has ever asked me if I had built and/or played in an igloo as a child. I used to roll my eyes so hard at that question and now I am aware that it was rude. Apparently, Canadians can and do build igloos for their children. Here’s proof:
A great time was had by all. The best kind of words were used when she finally came back in: “so cool”, “awesome”, “brilliant”, “snow fell down my neck”, and “can I have some hot chocolate?”.
If I meet someone with a pet beaver – I’ll let you know, eh?
