Sledding 2011

This past Saturday Rich took the kids for their first sledding experience! They've been pulled around the yard before, but with the lack of hills here, they've never had the chance to sled downhill until Saturday. Rich's grandma has a perfect sledding hill. I didn't go, but from what I understand (and from the pictures) Morgan LOVED it! She'd ride down and Rich pulled her up several times and she pulled her sled back up on her own several times. Unfortunately, Blake didn't think so highly of the experience (could have been since he fell asleep in the truck and was a little grouchy.)
Bundled up and ready to go!
Look at that smile!!
Going back for more.

After they got home, I thought it would be fun to have some hot cocoa...also a first for the kids...just to top off the afternoon of sledding. (I would have said to warm up after an afternoon of sledding, but they'd been inside at grandma's for at least an hour already before coming home.)
Mmmmm....

Ahh...the simple joys of the winter season. :-)

Beautiful pictures and brings back lots of memories when I was a kid. I loved to sled ride no care how big the hill. We had a great hill right in our back yard. Looks like lots of fun and Hot Choc.

I STILL haven't taken the boys sledding - I'm not a winter kind of person LOL I should take them though I bet they'd have a lot of fun!
