SNOW ACTIVITIES DRAW SMILES

The Rocky Mountains received a good helping of snow over the Christmas holidays. Apparently, Salt Lake City got more than they have in a LONG time! Some visitors from Louisiana learned new skills in the driving-in-snow department. Laurel and Brant did some great snow-only activities. The short squaty snowman was harder to make than it appears...powdery snow just doesn't pack well. However, it packs well enough to throw a few sneaky snowballs at the snowman makers! A mother just can't resist.

Laurel, Brad and Maren all made it down a few hills on the sled. Judging by smile-size, Laurel and Daddy had the most fun. Laurel was super brave and had the biggest shriek when she caught air over a man-made bump on the run. Brant was enjoying himself until a face-plant in the snow scared him, and he decided that was enough.

we do love to go sledding. we need to get a bigger one, though. our saucer sled just isn't good for child and parent downhills.
i'm glad your kiddo's got to sled, too.
