(Get it? The title…) I said if it wasn’t going to snow and be cold this winter, I would learn to enjoy it, but I still wanted just one week of deep snow to sled and build snowmen. We finally got some of the white stuff last week. (This weekend it was in the 50s and 60s and melted it all!) So, we had fun. Ellie and I played outside one day while Madison was at school.
Then, Madison joined us after school. The snow pack-ability had lessened some, but it was still a good time.
Jeremy and the girls worked at building some BIG snowmen the night before we got a lot of snow. The snow rolled really well, and their snowmen prove it! At some point, Ellie got cold and went inside. She couldn’t help but watch out of the window and constantly hold the door open to shout things at them.
Madison also got a day OFF school – her first snow day! We went sledding at Rachael Clark’s house with her and her kids. This was a blast, but I didn’t want to drag a camera or a phone out there. The snow was super wet. But their hill is long and fun. The perk for the kids is that Rachael would take them UP the hill on the four wheeler. It makes sledding last much longer when you ware working with little legs. She and I talked though and both agree that as adults we could sled all day – a super fun way to get a workout in!
The next night after school, we bundled up and tried out Jericho Hill. The sledders the day before had done a fantastic job of packing down the snow, and we flew over it like it were a sheet of ice.
