Winter Fun

Posted on January 10, 2009. Filed under: The Parenting Thing |

Finally — a day worthy of sledding.  We’d had snow before this winter, but it was always so bitterly cold the kids couldn’t be outside.  Last year Punk wasn’t so keen on the idea of donning all the winter gear, but this year she almost beat her brother getting dressed. 

Dad had them down a few runs by the time I was “dressed” (read enough clothes on to snap a couple of pics and then escape back inside) so they were primed by the time I got out there.  The first run with brother and sister in the same sled went perfectly.  They flew down the hill and stopped before the tree.

The second run ended in a bit of disaster.  The sled started to go astray mid run, then hit a snow snake and tipped….with brother landing on top of sister which completely burried her face down in the snow.  She was about to start bawling until she realized we were all laughing hysterically (I have a sick sense of humor, and yes, it’s funny when I see people fall).  Then I took a couple of pics.  This was the end of her sledding, for today.  I have a feeling she’ll be right back out again the next time around.
