We are currently in Washington where the average daytime temperature is about 12 degrees cooler than at our house in sunny CA. For Padyn, that means she's a bit more willing to wear her sweater than she is at home, but not by much. Anyhoo...we decided to hit the "slopes" for some serious sledding yesterday. Well, serious if you are 4 years old. Not quite sloping if you are over the age of ten, but fun nonetheless.

Padyn had a FABULOUS time (much to our surprise). She thought this was the greatest recreational activity she's ever done. I think she even liked it better than tubing. She was so disappointed when we told her it was time to go home. Poor baby. I guess this means we should take her to the snow more than once every two years.

I took a few pictures then I had to put the camera away because the snow started coming down and everything was getting wet and foggy. Not too good for photo opportunities. When the snow stopped, I got out the camera again to capture the extreme fun Padyn and the rest of the gang was having. (Truth be told, by this time, Padyn was the only young kid still enjoying herself.)

You might be wondering where Kate was in all of this. After the first 20 minutes or so, she decided she hated her mittens and took them off. I told her she needed to put them back on or go sit in the car. She choose to sit in the car with Lily Dog and Uncle Greggie. These were her biggest smiles of the day. Apparently, Lily's ball and water bottle are much more entertaining than snow.

Hey hey hey, let's not discount the level of entertainment provided by Uncle Greggie! =)
