Backyard Sledding

By , January 26, 2009 at 9:42 pm

It finally warmed up enough (to a whopping 20 degrees) to take the boys outside to play in the snow. Compared to the -18 weather we’ve been having it was relatively warm. We were hoping to make snowmen but it’s just too cold out. The snow won’t pack. Some day it will warm up enough. Instead we tried out our new sled. There just happens to be this perfect hill right in our backyard, thanks to the snow plow. Too much fun.

Mikey lying in the snow- being the first time in many days, he was loving it.

Super bundled up.

This is Davey.

He was actually smiling under there.

Loved it.

I know, we are crazy. We put him down the sled with Mikey.


I wasn’t planning on including this video, but uploaded it accidentally, so here it is.


Last time down.

The boyz.

Mikey kept rolling off the sled after each run. I’m not sure why. He must have thought it was fun to land in.


We actually did pack the boys up in the car a few days later to sled on an actual hill. The place we went actually has huge hills and in the summertime it looks so steep. For sledding, however it just wasn’t what we were expecting. We couldn’t get the sled to make it down the hill in one run. Bummer. From now on, we are sticking to our little backyard hill.

Oh, and by the way, Happy Chinese New Year!

    That’s awesome! Next time you guys come back to Utah you should check out Soldier Hollow. Mikey will probably be 3 the next time you come out, so you’d be able to take him with you. It really is the funnest place to go tubing because they pull up the hill!!
