this winter has wild weather patterns. snowy one day, then rainy the next. therefore when there is snow on the ground, we better be participating in some wintertime activities. and sunday we did!
baby blue remained on flat areas pulled slowly by her enthusiastic mama. cupcake is not in love with this adventure. but she looks good trying.
after several sleds, we had some company. wild turkeys.
brad and max had front row seats to this cool spectacle. thanks for the cool surprise jesus!
so daunting was the hill, and the climb up, that we eventually resorted to sledding down the deck.
quite sure these two can make an adventure out of anything including sleds.
this was actually a super fun idea. brad and i had to stand guard at the bottom so as not to lose a child down the hill solo.
what a daddy, willing to make the ultimate sacrfice.
look at that face, bring it on.
ayla jo did not have the benefit of trompsing up and down that hill on her own. any movement at all in that snow required parental assistance. so i snuggled her in my sling and got a workout of a lifetime by hefting her to and fro. this is the point during which we knew we were done. still cute, just done.
what a memorable first downhill sledding experience for one and all! so grateful for the protection god blessed us with during this outing. my grandma admitted she was thankful to be in florida so as not to have to witness the shenanigans of the meiste sledding experience.
