Sledding in 2011

I never shared the sledding pics from last weekend.
We're certainly not sledding this weekend...with the wind-chill, we're hovering right around 0 (during the day). It is fri-gid!

Last weekend we got the boys out for their 1st sledding trip this season. We think it was Brennan's 1st sledding trip, period.

A new sledding hill was built at a Metro Park near us, and it was impressive. A better hill than it looks, with one side having the extra "bump" some sledders enjoy flying off of.
Best part?
When they built this sledding hill, they built a firepit for those who want to stay warm. Complete w/ wood was nice. I stood by the fire & watched Pat & the boys do some sledding.
Next winter I plan to join them!

the firepit...wonderful, wonderful heat!

Once we hit the 20's again, provided the snow remains on the ground, I'm sure there will be at least one more sledding adventure.

Aw, so much fun! I do like sledding but it reminds me what I don't like about roller coasters. This summer, Cedar Point baby!!!!! (right?)
