So while I've been off trying to rest by wrist up, we decided to take a day off and go to the snow. We live about an hour to an hour and a half away from most of the ski resorts. We decided on SnoPark, which is just below Boreal off of I-80 East. It was a great call! They have a nice little store there, and a lodge for when it is busy. During the summer they have yurts, room for rv parking, and even a laundry facility.
When we got up there we found only a handful of other families, and all with little kids. Emma made fast friends with another little girl her age, and jumped right in to help with making a snowman. We spent a couple hours building away. Well, mostly I watched and handed them snow while sitting on the sled. Then we had a little lunch and walked over to the sled runs. There were a few families over there, too. Oddly enough, all their kids were 3 years old, too. We took a few runs down the hill before I got trapped hip deep loose powder. Whoops! After a few snow angels, we were all ready for some dry clothes.
The best (or worse - depending on perspective) was Adam's leap of faith. He decided to jump off a four foot snowbank and onto pavement. Well, what he though was fresh powder on the pavement was actually ice. He's a tall guy, and I knew as soon as he jumped that he'd eat it. Big time. There was a huge thud when he fell. I ran over to make sure he was okay. Thank God he was! He was feeling it for a few days, though.
We need to hit up Goodwill for some snowsuits without plunking down a ton of change. Hopefully we can go again the weekend after Christmas! New Years day might actually be nice since everyone else will be hung-over and sleepy.
