Play Therapy

After all of the difficulties of last week, it was a welcome break to just spend some time enjoying the snow and being together this weekend.
We're here in Gettysburg at my Mom and Dad's house, and they have a decent sledding hill right out the back door. We only had two sleds, so the "train" method is how we chose to roll most of the time.

Here's our big girl trudging back up the slope with the sled. She much preferred it when Daddy would drag her up on the sled. That happened maybe one time, but she was usually able to convince one of us to drag the sled for her.

After one too many facefulls of snow yesterday, I got smart and let Mike ride in front sometimes.


Here we are in a jumble at the bottom of the hill. Daddy and his girls... that commute from hell is becoming more of a distant memory.


If you haven't been sledding in awhile, I highly recommend it!! I'm going to be sore tomorrow, but it will be totally worth it :)

Aw! How sweet! We haven't ventured outside to try sledding this year. This post inspired me to toughen up and take my babe out to play in the snow!

That looks like so much fun! I would love to go sledding, but the weather has been so up and down lately. We were forecasted to get 4-8" of snow the other day, and only got a little, and now it's 59 degrees!

Go enjoy some hot cocoa. :-)
