The day after Christmas, which was a Monday observed, the weather had cleared and we decided to go sledding as a family (except Ana and Elin). First we tried somewhere new, Quarry Park, which was one of the first places we ever geocached.
Thorin had a blast! He was would race the kids down the hill, ears flapping and legs flying.
There was a flat deeper place sort of between the two hills and therefore all the heavier people got stuck there.
Theo would be immobilized in the snow so Nathan pulled him.
Samuel appeared to be the perfect weight since he absolutely flew down the hill and never got stuck. He was having a great time and never cried when he wiped out.
The snow was too powdery and not packed down enough to go very fast for everyone but Samuel.
Stuck in the deep stuff.
Flying and happy.
That dog has springs!
Terry and Noah, Thorin, Nathan and Theo.

Evie wiping out.
It was a pretty long hill.
After a while we decided to try Meadowbrook hill since this one was sort of difficult. Gosh it was beautiful that day though.
I was a bit in love with Thorin.

Again. Those ear flaps flapping were funny.
I love this huge old cottonwood tree in that field.
Everyone else had the day off too and it was packed! Nothing like our first time when the kids were all in school.
Coming to a stop.
Those baby blues!
So clean and white.
Shortly before leaving I had everyone line up so I could do a video of them all going at once. I also took pictures at the same time and caught Noah pulling Samuel's sled to the side...
...which resulted in a pile up!
In real time.
I went down a few times with Ezra at the end. He was psyched because with my weight we beat Samuel every single time.
