The great melt

I have shared with you many photos of our gigantic snow pile in the front yard. Finally the time has come to say: it is melting!

Pretty slowly however. Instead of being in the middle of the branches of the crabapple tree, it is now at the bottom of the branches. Woo. Eee.

And then I put the kids to work. They seemed to enjoy themselves.
