Sledding with friends

Last Saturday after the big snow, we met up with some friends from church to go sledding where we usually always go.  On the weekends, it's pretty crowded, so you have to watch what you are doing and look out for others.  I always get a bit nervous when going sledding.  The outside of the hill is lined up with hay bails (I'm sure I'm spelling that wrong) , and once they get wet, then they freeze so they are like rocks when you hit them.  The key is to try not to hit them, but sometimes you are going to fast, and you do.  A few people flew right over them.  It really was a lot of fun, and of course it was FREEZING!

Karen went down a few times and you could hear her laugh from miles away:)


Just watching!  She did go down with me 1 time, but when I stopped us, snow got all in her face and she was not a happy camper:)

Abby, who went to the very top of the hill several times.  Brave girl!!  Kyndal did too, and some how I managed to not a pic of her!

Ken!!!  I laugh every time I look at this pic!  He came down from the very top and when you hit the middle, you pop up.  Several people come right off their sleds!

Paul!  He hit the hay and busted his blow up sled!

Craig and Abby

I think this is Sean

Christian and Kayla


Some of our on-lookers!!

I didn't get pictures of everyone, but we all had a really great time.

The winter here is so cold and sometimes inconvenient in my opinion with the roads being icy and slick and snow covered at times, but it's so cool to experience a real winter and all the fun that comes with it.  I love that our family is making such great memories here and I love that our girls get to experience a different part of the country!  Very thankful!
