A West Michigan mom just celebrated her birthday. All she wanted as a gift was to be able to see green grass. They couldn't afford to get away, so, her husband shoveled away layers and layers of snow, and re-created a patio scene in their front yard.  Complete with spray painted snow to give it the appearance of a brick patio.

Aftre the snow was removed, the kids began spray painting the snow to create the  "stone patio".

Here's the finished "patio".  What a cool birthday gift!
