sledding

Filed under: Uncategorized — prothro @ 11:04 am

Sledding is a simple pleasure. No lift tickets required, no fancy equipment necessary- just a $5 sled from Walmart. My dad likes recalling the story of first family ski trip. He paints the picture of him on the bunny hill with his two snot-covered, chattering, cold children, bundled up like marshmallow fluff,  crying on the mountain and whimpering out of our cold, chapped lips, “Daddy, we don’t want to ski…” Quite the little troopers weren’t we?

So he grabs us up hauls us off the mountain, counts our lift tickets a loss and heads to Walmart to buy a $5 sled. Then we head to a hill behind a library and spend the entire afternoon gliding down a hill, running back up and gliding again.

Sledding is just always fun-whether you fall or stick the landing, whether you glide solo or on an overflowing sled full of friends, whether you have someone to shove you down the hill or simply let gravity do the work.

Sledding is always fun.

Crashing.

Or landing.

  1. Yes, sledding IS fun! These are darling and action filled pictures.

    I remember sledding as a little girl sledding down the looonngg hill infront of my house in Minneapolis. Daddy would also tie the tobaggon on behind the car and take all three of his little eskimos out on the lake and take us for a real sled ride on the lake behind the car!! Now that was fun!
