A sledding we will go!










We have been waiting patiently for a weekend nice enough to take the twins out in the snow up in Prairie and it finally came. This weekend was sunny and beautiful so we headed for the hills. Bodie and Annelise bundled up in their snow gear and took to the snow like champs! They had their very first snowmobile ride and seemed to love it. I use the word "ride" but at the speed we had to go you could say crawl. They don't make helmets for 1 year olds so we had to take it slow but at least Lucy could run along side us as well. We rode to a small hill not too far away and tried our luck at sledding. This, believe it or not, was much faster than our snowmobile ride! Seriously! The sled we bought must have been greased by Olympic Bobsledders or something because it was sooooooo fast! We ended up looking for hills that barely had any slope at all in order to keep things under control. The kids ordered lunch at the Y-stop and were treated to some sweets by one of our favorite Prairie friends, Karlene! We just love this age and are getting such a thrill from seeing the kids try new things. They aren't babies anymore and it's more apparent every day!
