If you are a long time reader you may remember the face plant disaster of 2008. At that time I said goodbye forever to sledding. Except that I really didn’t because 2009 came and we went back to Minnesota. There was a lot of snow and my kids love to sled. So, we loaded up and headed to a sledding hill.
I just watched this time, you know the whole “fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice …shame on me” thing.
They had a good time …
I was so excited because our niece went with us. She is so funny and quite the daredevil. She and Savannah had a wonderful time together.
Afterwards we went back to Grandma’s for hot chocolate.
So warm and cozy … coming home and drinking hot chocolate is my favorite part of sledding.
But you know what they say … there are always bigger hills to climb …
or sled … or something like that. And so a day or two later, we went here with one of Bill’s closest friends, Eric and his family (I’m sorry I don’t have pictures of them … he took these pictures and emailed them to me):
And did this:
It was like the magic carpet ride at the state fair … only instead of carpet we had inner tubes.
I never could decide if the emergency snowmobile sitting off to the side of the hill was a good thing or bad.
