Thanks 'Bampa!

While most men were excited to watch "the Big Game" yesterday, Emma's "Bampa" (my dad) was just as excited to built his first granddaughter a snow fort. A few weeks ago, he promised her he would build her the best fort ever when it snowed again. Well, after a snow-filled Friday and Saturday, we got the call that Sunday was going to be The Day.

I'd say he more than outdid himself. He was out there for over an hour on Sunday making the hugest mound ever, and then came over this morning to dig it all out.

As you can see, Emma can stand in it!

The man is totally butter around her. Anything for his "pretty girl, Emma."

What a great fort! I don't think he ever even built us one like that (Lisa & I)! I'm a little jealous, Emma! ;)
Looks like you had fun playing with Bampa in your fort!
