We were very excited about this winter event!! So we woke up early, ate breakfast, and bundled up! We were ready to play in the snow!!!!!!!
When we went outside, we found out that the snow was too dry to build a snow fort with, but this snow was perfect for sledding!!!!!! So we went sledding. At first, we were taking turns going down the hill with our one and only double person sled. Then Carl and Miriam went back up to the house and started making a mountain. Christian and Bethany kept taking turns sledding for awhile until Christian left to gather some snow to make a ramp! Bethany sledded down once more then headed back up to see what Carl was doing. Carl wanted her to bury him in the snow. So she did! Miriam helped her a little and soon Carl was a big lump of snow!!!
Later on friends came out and we did some sled races together. After awhile, we went up the "big hill" in our neighborhood to sled down. We didn't go up to the top right away. Instead, we went sledding on a steep hill (In the grass area) with some other neighbors. That was fun and scary. Some people stayed on and some people flipped and fell over. This hill was so steep that it was very, very, VERY, hard to climb back up. We kept slipping down!! We finally started going up the hill. That took awhile because we were tired (just a little), we were in snow boots (not the best for running or walking in!!!) we were very bundled up, and it was steep! A neighbor pulled out all their sleds for people to sled down on!! They had a sled where you had to lie on your stomach and steer with the handles in front. We went up and down, up and down, up and down, up and down, and up and down for a long time!
We decided to head back up to our place and race again on our hill. We did that for awhile then came inside and rested!
