Sledding Fun!

The winter has been crazy here in Colorado.  Sure we have gotten some snow as expected but the COLD oh the cold! Too cold.  The kids have been wanting us to take them sledding but we were avoiding the freezing temperatures BUT finally the day after Christmas we couldn't resist any longer. We bundled up and headed to the park down the street, literally walking distance from us and lucky for us - PERFECT sledding hill too!!  


This is Jude's second winter of sledding on his own but this was Teagan's first.  Last year she did go down the hill once or twice but this year she was so into it.  Even when she face planted 2 times! That's our girl!!  

Here is a great video that just makes me laugh and smile.  The joys of a child.  




We also taught Teagan all about snow angels .  Ahh...precious angels!!  


After we were cold and tired we started our way back home and we were able to catch this adorable video.  Jude told us he needed to help Teagan home because she had a long day sledding.  My heart!! 



Once we got home we warmed up with some hot chocolate and memories.  Perfect!  Glad we finally braved the cold for some sledding fun!

  1. So much fun! I hope we get some snow here this year so that Lennox can go sledding again. We have gone sledding before but on icy snow!

  2. We have snow in Wisconsin so it is time to get out the sleds. This is a funny year - snow in November then none in December - glad we have snow in January. This week is terribly cold - wind chills in the -30 - so hopping it warms up a little for the weekend so we can go sledding.

  4. Oh, I love it! We have told the boys that when it snows enough we will definitely find a steep hill and head out for some sledding. That is one of my favorite memories growing up!

  6. How cute is Jude's face in the first picture. I took the kids sledding by myself...unfortunately no pictures as the kids were a bit of a handful by myself :) The video is too damn adorable

  7. I haven't been sledding since I was 10. I think it's the one thing I miss about snow.

  15. Sledding is def. one thing I do like about winter. I'm trying to note things I do like about it, instead of whining about what I don't. ;)

  16. You certainly made sledding look and sound like fun, if only you could get rid of the cold weather.
