Those you that know me well know that I don’t like playing in snow very much. Even as a child I hated getting cold, and playing in snow means getting cold. However we have gotten two free sleds through Titus’ job and when a friend called and said she was taking her kids sledding I knew I had to go. “Alright, we will meet you there!” I told her. “But I really don’t know how long we will be there. Probably only 10 min. Faith will get cold pretty fast.” Boy was I wrong. When we got to the park I put Faith on a sled to watch everyone. I figured the longer she sat there the less snow would get on her and the less snow = less coldness. And yes, that is Faith not some random boy baby. I don’t really want to talk about her boyish snow gear.
The green sled is much bigger and heavier so I thought it would be the better one of the two.
The snow was pretty fluffy and was much better for making snow forts and snowman. But I walked up and down the hill to pack down the snow and then the kids could go down really fast.
And then all of sudden Faith figured out what was going on. That girl loves sledding!
Apparently the green sled is slow and the fast one is the blue one. The green sled just creeped along and was perfect for Faith. I actually put her on and shoved her down the hill by herself. 🙂
James and his friend Addy
James just loved sledding! He would zip down the hill on the fast blue sled barely sitting down before moving! Here he is on his tummy:

Faith wanted to go on the fast one so James held onto her and they went down together. James is such a good big brother!
Have you noticed the lack of pictures of Gideon? That’s because he got cold very early on and played in the truck the rest of the time.
So much for Faith being cold and saying we would only sled for 10 min! We were there for about an hour, and James and Faith made it the whole time! Apparently Gideon has Mommy’s genes. 😉 This is my favorite picture. The cold finally caught up with James, but Gideon who has been playing in the truck with the sun beating down on the windows is happy as pie!
When we got home the kids all drank hot chocolate together! What a great morning! I am so so so glad that Lisa unknowingly forced us to go sledding!
