"Old School" Winter Fun

Winter Fun-Sledding

It's been so long since Denver had a real winter with snow that actually sticks around for more than a day or two. I'm really loving the snow we're getting this winter! Of course, I haven't had to shovel any of it and I haven't had to drive anywhere important, so it's been great to stay home and hibernate.

Today we had another winter storm, the third big storm in three weeks, and we received an early morning call that preschool was cancelled! Yeah, a snow day! A snow day at our house doesn't mean much, though, since I don't work, my husband works from home and MC only has preschool 3 times a week. But to have no preschool today meant we, excluding C--kind of, could sleep in, lounge around in our jammies and take it easy! So that's exactly what we did until mid-afternoon when we decided we didn't want to make our own lunch.

We decided we could take out the "old school" sled and pull the girls to the neighborhood coffee shop. We could carry Baby J in the Baby Bjorn and protect him from the cold in our coats. It was a fun trek and probably easier than driving! The girls held on tight to the sled as it cut through the snow "like a hot knife through butter". Lunch was great and we even got a great workout.

After we came home we played a bit on the street since traffic was slow. It's been years since I've been on a sled and this was quite fun! Can't wait to find a good sledding hill for a real adrenaline rush!
