When The Sand Crumbles?

Today's post is perfect for a Nostalgic Wordless Wednesday...  ALTHOUGH you know I have to add some dialogue.

I took this picture last summer, before Minecraft invaded our home, when the boys were still constructing sandcastles in the backyard with real materials.  It's a little depressing when you consider the hours my younger sons waste clicking blocks of squares on a video game to build virtual kingdoms. 

I remind myself that this too will pass and soon the snow will give way to a green yard.  A yard full of shimmering blades of grass beckoning us outside into the sunlight.  A yard promising hours of outdoor play and a land where pixelated squares don't lure young boys inside. 

A girl can dream, can't she? 

What do you long for during the winter months?
