A Super Day

My parents don't have nearly as much snow as we do, but there was enough for a little sled ride or two on Saturday. Matt pulled Kelsey and Kendal around on the 4 wheeler. Kendal completely loved it, so did Kelsey.

Poor Kelsey, Kendal would just lay down on her. I am sure Kelsey was using every tummy and back muscle to stay upright because she only weighs about 5 pounds more than Kendal.

Kelsey told her cousins that she "got on an unsafe sled on her belly and had so much fun." Isn't that so funny? An "unsafe sled?" Is there such thing as a safe sled? Especially being pulled behind a 4 wheeler?! It really was just an old sled, the kind with metal runners and a wood body. So funny, how quickly time changes things from wood to plastic everything. Kendal liked riding the 4 wheeler with her dad while they pulled Kelsey.

I had to prove that me turning another year older didn't mean that I couldn't have fun and go on a sled ride. I told Matt to give me a good ride. It was good, but since I am 125 pounds heavier than Kelsey, and there wasn't a whole lotta snow, I did have a hard time by hitting rocks and dirt. If I wasn't right on the hard packed snow, the runners cut through and I had a sled ride on dirt. Not the best ride, but not bad.
Matt got to shoot his new gun he got for Christmas for the first time. He spent alot of time with the bore butter, but he enjoyed playing with his gun and figuring it out.
Tori and Taylor went to my parents also, so when they got there on Saturday we got to do the sledding thing all over again. Kendal and my dad drove while the two older girls screamed. It was great.

Tori and I took the girls for a ride also. I drove and Tori sat on the back with the camera. I was trying to find some good snow, so I went down a certain road. No snow that way, total dirt road. So we had to take a detour through the weedy prickly patch to get back to the snowy road. Tori and I were laughing so hard at hearing the girls squeal and scream.
I am such a horrible driver that I made them wreck twice. Nobody else made them wreck, well, actually, I think Matt tipped Kelsey over once. Anyway, they loved it, we loved it, and it was a super day.

Looks like Y'all had fun! The unsafe sled thing is a hoot, my kids get to watch thier uncles and Dad do the unsled thing a lot.

I think every sled becomes unsafe behind a 4 wheeler, but it is so much more fun! I'm glad you had a good time!

Looks like a lot of fun! Anna got a sled for Christmas and we have yet to try it out. With the snowstorm we got today I guess we don't have any excuses not to break it out!
On a side note, I asked Rob if we could move to Heber so I could come and play with you guys on all your playdates. He said we could, but reminded me that you are moving soon. I guess that foiled those plans!

Thanks for the blogging advice! I keep looking at your blog and saying, "she's got like 8 pictures in this one, what's up with that?!" I better get to those abs. It's now or never!

I hope that Aly and Ash don't see the pictures of the "unsafe sleigh" That is the only kind of sleigh we own! It was worth the extra money because the plastic ones always break! It was fun to see you for the short time we did. You need to arrange the date thing with Matt so the girls can come hang out. I promise to deliver them the next day early...by noon!

You are so not moving anytime soon! You need to find a house for Krista to come up and live in Heber. Looks like fun, we (the boys and I) also heard about the unsafe sled when we asked what happened to Kelsey's Cheek! It sounded a lot worse than the pictures look. I wonder if she told her teachers/DCFS about the bruise on her cheek and the unsafe sled! FUNNY

that cheek does look pretty bad, and after Kelsey showed her teacher the HUGE Kendal bite on her back last week while I was in the classroom, that teacher might turn me in!! You should have seen the look on her face when Kelsey showed her the purple bruise and teeth marks on her back!
Everyone come and visit when I get locked up!

I can't believe they don't have more snow over there in Wayne Co. Looks like a lot of fun anyway.

Tori said...

Taylor had a blast with Kelsey! I didn't know that it was dubbed the "unsafe sled" That is funny! I think her concern should have been the "unsafe" moms on the 4-wheeler!!
