This afternoon we drove an hour up to the snow. We started to get nervous 40 minutes into the drive when we were in the mountains and still not seeing any snow. We began to think of last week's sun and 70 degree weather. Once we started to see patches of snow, we all began to breathe a little easier. We like a small snow park just off the freeway. It has a few groomed hills to sled down. Since it was Monday and all the other kids were in school, we had the whole area to ourselves. It was a blast! Ashley was very cautious, and I eventually had to push her down the hill to get started. Halfway down the hill she decided it was great. Emily took to it just like a penguin. She would still be there if it were up to her. Unfortunately, Dad and Mom were getting tired of trudging back up the hill. We needed a ski lift.
