           Well i probally wont tell you anyways but for today this was a fun project to do =)


My kids and I also make it beyond the sliding glass door to atempt to shovel our patio off and play a little..I managed to finish it but i had to learn the hard way that my son does not like the snow..he played for a bit then quickly decided that was enough of the white stuff and screamed while i finished shoveling! Maybe it's the age (18 months) oh well here is our veiw from the back!
