a sledding we will go....

It snowed a ton yesterday and last night.  We think that it was at least eight inches.  So, in the spirit of making lemonade out of lemons - we went to our local sledding hill with our neighbors and good friends - the O'Bryans.  I don't know how I could have missed it, but I have driven past this hill lots of times and never noticed it.  Not anymore.

We had great fun.  It was a BEAUTIFUL day.  The sun was shining, and there was no wind chill. I was actually sweating in my two layers of clothes.  We were out for awhile before I even realized that I wasn't wearing my hat - and I didn't need it anyway.

Emily had more fun on the smaller hill, but was very brave and did a few runs on the big hill. Paige enjoyed the small hill very much.  So much, that every time we finished our run she cried because it was over.  We need to get another sled, one is not enough for this family of daredevils. 


oops....someone lost their boot......



Now I must go and rest my old bones - I am actually sore from all that FUN.

What happened to "real" sleds? You know, wood with metal runners and a steering mechanism?

They are apparently dangerous. I broke my mom's ankle with one of those. AND they are not allowed on the sledding hill.
