Sledding - I LOVE this first pic

The weekend before last was action packed, and included a sledding trip to a park near my parent's old home. Lisa took our oldest three while her friend Chris brought her own trio. I stayed home with Lump, who was suffering from a runny nose and was deemed unfit for duty.





It has become a tradition, albeit a reluctant one, for me to take the slopes myself. ("You have to do it, at least until the kids are old enough to remember you doing it," says Lisa) I felt a bit wimpish for staying home with Lump. Happy, but wimpy.

This year tho' Lisa returned full of regret for giving the go-ahead to the expedition. It was C-O-L-D and the adults involved were miserable.


The kids, naturally, had a blast.

Great pictures! But just looking at those pictures, it actually LOOKS cold in them.

That grey overcast sky and all that white powdery snow.

Yea, I would have been miserable too. Even with all my extra 'padding.' LOL

Loved that first picture...a very precious moment caught on film. That's one that deserves to be blown up and hung on the wall for the world to see. :)

What fun! The photo of the elder children is Kodak moment quality.

The venue reminds me of Sunset Park in Newton, IA where I went sledding as a child.

Nice shot at the top! My kids are missing snow right now, but I'm not. :)

I used to find that the only true solution to a sledding outing was to get in the mix, because otherwise you stand there in the cold all miserable and such. Glad the kids had fun :o)
