Watch Out Snow! Here We Come!

The entire tribe was finally well enough to tackle a snow day! We gathered up our kids; our gear; our snacks; and a carrot (for the snowman of course!) and headed to the hills. We met up with my dad and my brother's crew and proceeded to have an absolute blast!

The day started a little rough with Mitchell's first solo sled ride landing him square into a tree. That was followed by Grandpa's version of Mr. Toad's Wild Ride that ended with Grandpa wrapped around a pole and the boys standing in the parking lot looking dazed. We decided the Sno-Park was a bit icy for our fledgling sledders. Grandpa had the foresight to pack a bucket's worth of KFC in his ice chest, so we chowed on that and plotted our next move. We decided to seek out fluffier snow so we could build a snowman. What we found was a little hill all to ourselves where we could sled and build a snowman with oodles of character.

Quite proud of our handiwork...

It is always more fun to sled with a buddy...or a grandpa...


Or a father-in-law...

And even though princesses don't like the snow...they are, um, attached to their Daddies...
And, the perfect end to a perfect day is smiles on faces....
