Snowy Fun

We woke up yesterday to a surprising amount of snow, but the temps were sooo cold. It didn't stop us from getting in a little sledding though, who knows when we'll get a chance again. So we bundled up and headed out into the 10 degree temps and stayed amazingly warm. There were a lot of people sledding and it looked like a lot of the snow was worn down but we were still able to pick up plenty of speed. I love sled riding but hate to be cold but I kept toasty today going up and down the hills. I always feel like a kid flying down the hill, feeling that adrenaline rush. I got to ride down with Noah, Aiden and even Todd. It was fun.

Here's Noah coming down on the saucer sled.

Drew on his boogie board.

Me and Aiden.....I look like a dork....but a dork that's having a blast.
Todd and Aiden.Noah....well it's his snow angel at least.
A little video of Drew coming down the hill. I got in his way so he couldn't get all the way up on his feet as early as he'd planned. He had fun "snowboarding" down the hills. It made me nervous at first, but I got used to it.

We had so much fun and already decided that with the next snow, we are taking the boys to South Park to sled ride. They are ready for the big hills!! (and so am I!)
It was the perfect day. We came home, the boys put on PJ's, we had hot chocolate and we spent the rest of day relaxing with TV, reading, and board games. Todd had a soccer game in the evening but other than that, we just enjoyed our special time.

Looks like fun! We just had snow here in NC last week. It only lasted 1 1/2 days. We don't have any hills close to my house so we just used our slide! Hope you are able to get some more sledding in!

Nothing like a good snow for sledding-although I never enjoyed being out in the cold for any reason! still dont...

Kat said...

I feel the same way! I LOVE sledding but hate the cold. If it is above 20 degrees that is perfect.
It looks like you all had a blast. Glad you were able to get out there and enjoy it. :)

Sounds like the perfect Winter Day. I hope you have plenty more...and you do NOT look like a dork at all, but a happy smiling mom. Aiden looks a little squished though---Just Saying.

I liked your comment "It made me nervous at first, but I got used to it." Funny how Mom's feel that way often in life. Wait until he starts driving a car...talk about NERVOUS.

Looks like lots of fun!! We're supposed to be getting some in the next two days. I love snow and sledding!

Deb said...

Sounds and looks like a great time Kelly! Where did you sled?

Our family loves playing in the snow too...but really no good hills around close by.

BTW...I agree with Cindy...you look like you are having a blast...and a great mom! ;-) Have a great day!

We finally got snow today too. But we didn't make it sledding, just ran around and shoveled and threw snow. It looks like you guys had a blast.

What a wonderful, wonderful winter day! I miss sledding so much. My boys have never gotten to go. :(
We do have a grass hill here in Chattanooga that everyone goes cardboard sledding down. At least it's not cold!

Wow~South Park...you are brave! That hill seems so much smaller that it used to be doesn't it?
