With plenty of wet snow and temperatures in the 40’s, conditions were optimal for Henry to achieve his lifelong dream of building a snowman today in Washington Market Park.
A first snowman for Henry and Dad.
Putting on the finishing touches.

Henry practices catching snowflakes on his tongue during a walk home.
The hobby of the day was painting on big paper. Henry likes watching his dad paint and working independently too. He is lucky his dad is an artist and paints pictures that seem to resemble what they really are, whereas about the best I can do is a heart and some nice words.
The historic blizzard of ’15 fizzled out anticlimactically (for NYC) but it gave us a day at home together and left enough snow on the ground for snowball fights.
Not much snow had accumulated on the ground yet but it was coming down as Henry and I made our way home.
Walking home through the snowfall.
Icicles form on the steps.
Today was a cold, wet one with a mixture of snow and rain falling throughout, so we spent some time at the local library.
