Sledding

We are in the midst of another sizable snowstorm in New England so I decided not to drive into the city today and stayed home for some fun in the snow.

A couple months ago we went to the local Target and unsuccessfully tried to buy a sled for Grace. Unfortunately, no stores actually sell sleds in the winter, I guess you need to buy them in the fall, who knew? So we improvised a bit today and took Grace sledding in the backyard in a laundry basket. She didn't seem to mind that it wasn't actually a sled, she didn't even mind Mommy dumping her. See the fun below.

Hahaha now that's some good improv! I don't get how Jen dumped Grace though, looks like you're the one running and pulling the sled Steve!

Hey B- I think they took turns video taping and pulling Grace- LOL.. That video was hysterical on SO many levels... Gracie in the laundry basket, mom & dad running w/the rope, and of course Gracie falling out. I think you need to check Grammie's basement for some items :) Love Tammy

How very creative! And I'm glad you all had fun. I played mean mom and we all stayed in playing on the computer and Wii all day. After all, the snow was blowing sideways for most of the day light hours!

THAT is hysterical. I never would have thought of that.

Just a heads up- start looking for a preschool and kindergarten for her now too- you have to get her on a list like 2 years in advance! It's insanity! :) Glad you figured out the sled though! I'll have to try that with my kids!!!

I think the funniest fact of all is that Jen is actually running and out in the snow! Ha ha, just kidding Jen! It looks like you guys had a good time! I love the laundry basket idea, too funny!
