A Great Saturday

Yesterday was a great Saturday. After Daddy's long training run in the morning, we all got in the car for some family time. Since the weather was warm and gorgeous here, what did we do? We went to the snow!

On our way, we stopped to see the trains for awhile.  I got a new book to read written by the same lady who wrote Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel.

Just over an hour from home, we decided to stop by the side of the road at this sledding hill.  Lots and lots and lots of other families had done the same thing, and we loved watching them.  We weren't feeling super adventurous when we set out, so we didn't come prepared to sled.

Mommy and Daddy's favorite sight was this group of Mennonite ladies sliding down the hill in their traditional garb.  If you click on them, you can see them on their green sled.  We loved that there were all kinds of different families enjoying the snow.  Did we mention it was warm?  We really didn't even  need sweatshirts.  It was an amazing day.

Here we are tromping around in the snow.

More tromping!

On the way home, we got caught in traffic on the two-lane road for about an hour and a half because there was a big wreck up ahead.  I got to use the side of the road instead of a potty, which was exciting!  After we finally got past the wreck, a nice police officer pulled us over to make sure we were safe.  (According to Mommy.)  I heard him say something about giving us a warning and a break, and then Mommy and Daddy seemed very happy.  He was a really nice guy.  It was a great end to a great day!

Hey this was the exact place we went to find snow last week! Where did you park? We wanted to sled on this hill, but couldn't even get off the road (and NO ONE else was on it...) Looks like a fun day for your family!
