Sledding anyone?

I'm not a fan of cold weather. And yes, I make it known. But now I think I know why! Everytime we go to Utah and play in the snow it is blizzarding...literally. Really, how fun is it to sled down a mountain when the wind chill factor is 30 below and you've got snow in places you didn't know you had. Well, this trip changed my attitude. We went sledding with the family and the conditions were perfect! It was sunny, yet still crisp. The snow was perfect for sledding. The park we went to had a great little mountain perfect for kids and the inexperienced (like me). We had a great time. All of these pictures are courtesy of Kevin's mom, Pat. I love these pics!
Cade couldn't wait to get to Utah to play in the snow. He even said when we were up there, "Mom, I think we should live in the snow." Wait, I probably shouldn't be posting that. It might give Kev some leverage in the "where do we live?" debate. :)
Paul set up a rockin' hot chocolate station. If anyone got too cold, Paul was there with some warm cocoa. Poor Hailey couldn't participate in the sledding...she's got a bun in the oven.
No, I wasn't haven't a bit of fun. :)

Check out Aubs...she's flying!

I love this picture of Wendy and Oliver. So sweet!

You have to click on this picture to see the faces of Aubrey and Wendy up close. It's quite possibly one of my favorite pictures of all time.

Wendy floating away. That's all folks!



Wow, MUCH better than our snow trip. I guess if you have the right equipment, it doesn't go so badly.

I love the snow pictures. I don't love the snow either, but I do miss the snow at Christmas time. What a fun Christmas you guys had. :)

Looks like you guys had a blast while you were here! There are so many people to see--we'll have to catch you next time. That picture of Aubs and Wendy IS the best ever!

I have a love/hate relationship with snow. I love to look at it and how it makes everything look but I hate shoveling it, playing in it, driving in it, you get the picture. What a great Christmas though!
