Playing in the Snow

Today Kelly had the day off work so we went up to the pass to find a good free sledding hill after Jacob came home from pre-school. Since the snow in the northwest is so different every year, it is difficult to find a sledding spot that consistently has good snow. So we went for a family adventure to find the greatest sledding hill we could find. We have had only a dusting of snow at our house this year, so we went to a local ski resort, about 15 miles from our house. It was a little hike in, but that is what makes life an adventure. We all had a great time--even Gordon. The boys could have stayed and played for hours longer. Everyone stayed dry and warm in their snow gear. I'm glad we got some use out of them this season, because it will probably be too small for them next year. --emily

Love the video! What a perfect day, it was gorgeous yesterday. Glad you filled it with fun! Do dogs wear protective gear on their feet? It made me cold thinking of standing on the snow in bare feet for a few hours, burrrr!
Love, momAKAgrandma

I guess that question should be rephrased, Do dogs wear protective gear on their paws?

How fun! I was geared up with snow stuff for this year and it's still in the closet waiting to be used. Gordon is one lucky dog to go on the family adventures.

looks like you all had a great time in the snow. Also where did you go sledding? We are going saturday and can't find anywhere that doesn't cost $$$. I also would love to get together soon...

It is good you got some use out of that snow gear. I sure hope that we can make some of our things work again for next year--because we didn't use it this year. I also love the lego competition idea, very fun!
