After being let down week after week of forecasting snow and never getting anything.... last evening, literally minutes after the kids were all home from school, the giant snowflakes began to fall! And before that it had been raining and sleeting most of the day. So, of course, it made for EXCELLENT sledding snow this morning!
The kids got up, ate breakfast, and immediately got in their snow gear. We were finally going to get to try out all the sleds we got for Christmas... the base was closed until noon, so Nick headed out with Addison and Trevor first.
Which didn't always end so well...
Addison just had a BALL playing in the snow!
Next it was Mommy's turn to try out the saucer...
(I was spinning at an exponential rate on the way down, hence the stupid dizzy look on my face)
Yes, I just posted this pic of myself! Ha!
and yet another ending at the fence....
Addison coming to check on me... I was waiting for the world to stop spinning.
Okay... let's do it again!!!
Trevor attempting the spin...
Then, the attempt on the little butt sleds...
These make a great ab workout to keep your legs up out of the snow on the way down.
Last, I wanted to try going down standing up... Nick said it was fun, but harder than it looked.
(Nick switched to black and white on this ride...)
It was definitely harder than it looked... so this one didn't end well either!
Not so bad for a "fun hater" huh?(according to my 13 year old who once told me that... why? because I was a "mother of 4") Where was she? In her room because she was so not going to wear snow pants... how embarrassing!!!!
Who's the fun hater now!?!?
Thank you Nick for taking pictures of me with the kiddos so that the world knows that I do exist!
