Cold snap!

David got a few lego sets for Christmas. Just a few weeks ago, I was talking to a friend of mine about how frustrating lego is for David. He wasn't able to figure out instructions and had a hard time waiting for his parents to have the time to help him.

Then Christmas happened and his aunt and uncle in Ontario sent him a whole airport. David got sick of waiting for us grownups to help. So he put almost the whole thing together on his own. And then, with his newfound confidence, he put together several more sets. Including this one:

Just look at the pride in his eyes. Cutie pie.

Once the xfighter was put together, we went for a winter walk. To Sendall Gardens. It was very cold.

Uncle Rob walking on the fountain.

Then the kids played with the ice.

And we looked at the ducks.

While I was in awe of the vines strangling this poor tree.
