The Fun Continues...

Once the kids woke up this morning, they checked to make sure that the snow was still there and their snowman was still keeping guard outside. Although both kids were eager to go play in the snow, they patiently waited for me to get out of bed.

Once outside, we had so much fun playing in the snow, building tiny snowmen with icy snow-chunks left behind by the plow, as well as climbing up and down mounds of snow that was piled up from the plowing. However, this only kept the kiddies entertained for about an hour, at which time they were tired of this activity.

Luckily, I had another activity in mind. Every winter after a snowfalls, the local kids head to a steep hill by the local pool to slide down with their sleds (or whatever else they can find to ride down.) Even as recent as last year, our kids were still too young to do this, but this year we felt that David (at least) could slide down the hill by himself. Before long, both kids were sledding down , although they particularly liked watching the older kids playing with their snowboards.






Especially surprising was that after the ride, David was actually pulling his sled back up the hill.

That looks like fun! What a great idea! Is the lot to the club open to park in?

I guess Jordan can keep Julia company in the house, because he had no interest in playing out in the snow this weekend. Mina, on the other hand, couldn't wait to get out there.

I am not sure if the pool's parking lot is open, but most people park on Moore Ave btw Grand and Broad Ave.
