Sledding

After bundling up, we trudged through the snow (literally, trudged!) to find a hill in the neighborhood to sled on.

Since the snow was so deep, we had to spend a lot of time creating a packed-down path for the sled to go down. At first, we just sank right in. And walking back up the hill was so tiring in knee-deep snow that we alllmost gave up.

It was totally worth it though when we got the snow packed-down enough. We went down the hill train-style a couple of times.

I was surprised how warm we all stayed in the snow. Except when you wiped out or got tackled by a sibling, of course.

All in all it was pretty successful sledding. It was especially enjoyable because we don't often get enough snow to go out and do this!
