As usual, is was cold (this is a window in our house).
And snowing non-stop--no swimming this weekend! Poor swimming pool...
But we decided to make the best of it and take the kids sledding. We had the sleds, but had forgotten to bring all the snow gear, so I headed off to Wal-Mart and many $$$s later had enough snow pants, boots and gloves to keep the five kids snow-proof.
We headed off to some nearby dunes to let the sled fest begin.
Point blank: I'm not fond of sledding! I'm a city girl and I don't like climbing "mountains" covered in snow. I fell like five times and *almost* started crying, plus I lost my lens cap (and my dignity) during a particularly bad spill--but it's all for the kids, right!?
And they loved it! Here's Pickle AKA The Snowbunny.
I really like these outdoorsy pics of Andy:
Action shot of Patrick!
And action shot of Don and Pickle...
Also, a non-action shot!
Oops, here's yet another one of Andy.
Just one more of Pickle...
Pretty sky/tree pic:
I don't know if you can tell in this pic, but Gooser's snowpants are hot pink! It was the only pair at Wal-Mart that was even remotely his size--he didn't seem to mind though!
Today we drove back in a blizzard (Of course! Becacuse it never stops snowing!) and I'm frazzled and exhausted. I think a nice hot bath is in order...
