There's a classic sitcom called 'Father Ted' where Ted is trying to explain this concept to Father Dougal. "These ones (shows toy cows) are small but the ones out there (real cows outside window) are far away."

:lol:

We had an uncharacteristically large amount of snow last weekend (as in, it's still there, 4 days later, which is pretty unheard of in the Netherlands), so we created our own snowman

5 year old (6 tomorrow...) added for scale ;)

It was pretty terrible sculpting snow. Too cold, which meant it didn't really stick together. Still, for a 4 year old and a 6 year old working together, it turned into a pretty decent snowman :D

It was the same here. We had a lovely winter wonderland for a whole week. Snow all over the place and the little stream and pond near my house froze solid enough for ice-skating. It was great. It started raining yesterday though, so we're back to the wet and dreary Dutch winter...

She was indeed! She's old enough now to really enjoy the snow. One or two years really makes a difference at her age. Walking to school with her was the same thing. She managed to roll through all the snow piles she found on her way there. Snow is meant to be played in after all...

:lol: I get it. 'One day snow', gone so quickly you barely have time to do anything with it.

Excellent stuff, guys.

That sort of idea ideed. Excep that I'm not close to Amsterdam and my pond looked a lot less impressive...

But skating outdoors is sort of a national craze in the Netherlands. Even more so this year, where everyone is stuck inside due to Corona. But even other years we get "ice-fever" as soon as temperatures drop below 0.
