Sledding Fun

Sledding is a "winter sport" where we live. It's one of those things that you do with your kids. It's one of those things you do as an adult, too! Sledding this year is much more fun and sustainable than it was last year. Let's just say we (meaning A & C) were not as acclimated to the weather and the happenings with sledding. This year is different-they get the fact that you might not make it all the way down the hill, or that you might turn around and go down backwards, or that you might fall off of your sled. All of these being possibilities are ok with our kids. It makes it much more fun and makes things easier for everyone!
When their cousin Liam was here around Christmastime we went sledding altogether and had a blast!
There were many trips up and down the hill by everyone. Jake-J's brother went too and introduced our kids to the saucer. Yes, our 4 year olds went all the way down the hill on the saucer and absolutely LOVED IT! They did better on that than they did on the regular sleds! Needless to say I didn't look right away when C went down on it the first time. It's a little daunting watching your kids go by themselves without fear, but at the same time knowing you did the same thing when you were that age! I'm not as fearless as I used to be.

We sledded until dark and until all of the streetlights came on.
I'm sure we could have gone longer, but legs were getting tired and hot chocolate was calling.
We can't wait to sled with Cousin Liam again!
