A Sunday Sled in the Park

(Maddy, D.J. and Devin)

After a gusty Friday to the point of loosing power for a few hours, followed by rain and more wind Saturday, Sunday we woke to several inches of snow. As a family activity, since our ward doesn't start until 1:00pm, we bundled up, pulled on the 'moon' boots and hit the slopes. Okay, it was only a slight slope, but a slope nonetheless.

Our subdivision park, completely flat last summer, hauled in a bunch of dirt and made a bowl between the pool, playground, and basketball court. I thought they were nuts and wondered if it was done for drainage or some project the landscaping 'geniuses' decided to do for the basketball morons who couldn't tell the difference between the orange foliage of a burning bush or the rim. Needless to say, I'm grateful to the morons- I mean the highly engineered drainage system.

(D.J. was the first to try out the jump.)

When we were rosy-cheeked and our lower extremities sufficiently numb, we headed home for a hot cup of cocoa and a hot shower before getting ready for church.

    That looks like a lot of fun. Very daring to try a jump on a sunday :) We probably would have spent the rest of the day in the ER :) That's just how we work :) Hot cocoa sounds fabulous also!!

    It was Dave's idea... what else can I say! lol Last year we didn't have nearly as much snow so it's kind of a 'play in it while you can' thing like it is in Oregon. I thought Boise would have snow more often! As always, I thought wrong.

    It is probably like Delta, it all blows away :) We got some nasty snow storms though. But very few snow days.
