slip, sleddin' away

Tomorrow (Sunday) will mark 1 week of this unusual winter weather (for the Pacific NW). However, there have been a few breaks in the week and I even managed to make it to the outlets and Costco on Thursday to get out of the house.

Today, after waking up to more snow, we decided it was time to go out and play. Since Ryan was home, I was way more willing to bundle up two little ones because I had help. So, after lunch we all put on our snow gear (I was thankful that I actually had some for the kids) and headed down the neighborhood to a spot with some hills. We tried a smaller one first, then kept walking and tried out another area, and then finally found one that had quite a few people playing and having fun.

I thought it would be fun to share some pics of our little "daredevil". After her first slide down with dad, she wanted to do it all by herself (big shocker!). Austin was content just sitting there watching. Austin and I ended up heading home a little early, but Mikayla wanted to stay and sled some more. When she and Ryan walked through the door, she was complaining of cold toes, so we warmed them up in some of mommy's socks and then made graham crackers and frosting with red and green sprinkles. I think she had completely forgotten about her toes at that point.

Looks like lots of fun. We rarely get enough snow for sledding, usually just a dusting.

What fun! Our weather forcast says we're going to get 12-15 inches tonight. Yikes.
