The week was filled with baseball practices, basketball practices, parent meetings about baseball, etc.. Sounds more like sports took over rather than life doesn't it?
We took the older boys out of school on Friday and headed up to the mountains. I was so disappointed when we woke up that morning and it was dark and gray. That meant more rain and more snow in the local mountains. Did we dare drive up and perhaps get caught in a storm? We decided to go for it.
The drive up was beautiful. It only takes about 90 minutes to get their and we were greeted with a winter wonderland. Snow everywhere on the ground, yet the skies were clear in the mountains.
We have a local park we usually go to to sled. There was so much snow it was hard to walk but we all had fun. It was Paige's first trip to the snow and she was really excited. She had fun sledding down the hill with her dad.
Here she is being a little impatient. Hurry up Dad and drag me back up that hill!!!
Samantha didn't seem to concerned. She was warm in her parka and having a great time. Well, that is until her brother started throwing snow balls at her. That made her mad.
The older three kids found a hill a little off the beaten track. They had to hike a little to it and were pretty tired after going up and down a couple of times.
Here's Tyler after climbing back up the hill. It must not have been that bad, he is still smiling.
Zach passed out on the snow for a few minutes to get his strength back.
Garrett had a great time!!! That kid was completely covered in snow!
