(Side note! I promised Kate Spring that I would post some pictures of the entries from the 1/2 price Session Fee contest, and I still will! I just planned to do this today, so I will definatley post them, I'm not SLACKING I SWEAR!) :)
Yesterday I took my two nephews, Jacob & Griffin, and my Libbers sledding at the resivour in Van Wert. I never intended to get on a sled, but I went with Libs once, and then I was hooked. I forgot how much fun it was, and I definatly needed to feel like a kid again! :) Everyone should! :) Here's some shots I got before I put my camera away and just flew down the hill until my derrier was frozen solid!
Lib had so much fun! She kept saying, "I think the Penguins live here. I think they will get mad that we are using all their snow." She kept us all laughing the entire time we were there.
Lib couldn't get up the hill. This is her one attempt at trying by herself. It's pretty humourous. I took a continuous shot, and there were plenty more frames, but I had to edit them down because I think I could have posted her walking in 45 frames! the 2nd to last time we went down the hill before leaving, she said "Mom, I think I'm just going to give up." She's such a nut. :)
Griffin and Jake brought their snowboard. I was too chicken to get on watching the boys go tumbling down the hill. I don't like to tumble, and I bruise really easily, okay?! They had so much fun, here is a frame by frame of Griffin in a pretty successful attempt down the hill.
Jake found us a ramp made of snow and we all tried to hit it. Lib and I were barreling down the hill at like 60 mph (I SWEAR.) BACKWARDS, and hit the thing. I was cussing, I confess. Good thing Lib doesn't really listen to me, or she may be asking me why poop is holy?! LOL! Here is Jake getting some air on his sled...
I love this picture, because it just shows the relationship these boys have with Liberty. They are like my big brothers were to me. I think the three of them (and our new little nephew coming in June!) will be there for each other much like my brothers and I. That makes me smile :)
