Finally it the temps reached 30 degrees today and we were able to go sledding for the first time this winter! It's hard when you have all this snow but it is too cold to be outside. We had a blast and Jon and I laughed till we cried at some of the jumps in the air, near misses into the trees, and not so near misses, and my all time favorite when Jonnie just kept going and going and I swear he had to walk almost a mile back up the hill!

Sawyer was a little nervous to go down the hill.

Here we go! I giggled the whole time and Sawyer was totally serious-I wish I could have seen his face. Afterward he said "no more, me no like it." I got my leg workout today as it was A LOT of work getting back up the hill-esp. carrying him!

There goes Alaina...

and Jon and Jonnie having a race-Jonnie won as Jon seemed to have absolutely no control over his sled and would end up all over the place!

Alaina and I went down together-can you see us down there-did I mention it was a looong way back up the hill.

Sawyer was happy watching and playing in the snow-here he made a cute little snowman (:

We finally talked him into sledding down again with Alaina-he was game and liked it better this time. I took him down a smaller hill after this and he loved it.

Jon and Jonnie again right before they wiped out at the bottom.
This was just what we needed to get us through for awhile......tomorrow we are back to a high of 8-at least it was fun while it lasted....
