Since we are “enjoying” an epic storm here this week, I thought I’d share some of the sledding pictures from our outing on Monday.
It snowed a little over here Sunday night, so on Monday, which was a Martin Luther King Day, we decided to take Evelyn sledding. Unfortunately, all the snow had melted by then, so we had to take a little drive to go looking for it. We ended up at this little parking lot on the way to White Pass. It is funny to think that was only a few days ago, since we now have over a foot here and the snow has been bad enough that Steve had to miss school yesterday and we even had to put off getting our new apartment because the roads were too dangerous to risk the drive.
The parking area was fairly rocky, so the ride wasn’t too smooth until Steve found this clear patch. They did lots of circles once there.
Evelyn loved it. She slid all over the place in her slippery snow suit.
That is why Grandma is holding her in the sled by her hood in this picture. She was also trying to keep her head covered. She didn’t want her hat on at this point. Grandpa and Daddy made several trips up this hill to ride down with her.
She liked having company in the sled. Her excitement shows much better in the videos I have than these pictures, though.
Everyone took turns cuddling with her in her fun suit (except me, but I got lots of hugs. I’ll be so happy when I can just hold her again). It was plenty cold out, even with the lack of snow. Evelyn never seems to mind it, though- unless I’m trying to change her diaper in the morning and she doesn’t want me to take her jammies off. But I can understand that.
Happy Snow Day from the Flynns!! Stay warm!
