Sledding on Our Hill

We have a sweet little sledding hill in our back yard. It sort of goes from our yard, flows over the retaining wall and down into the neighbor's yard! Thanks to our son-in-love Vince we got permission from the neighbors to end up in their yard!
Here's Ruth and Drew at the top.

They decided it was a lot of fun to slide down penguin style.

Drew as a penguin. Maybe not so great on the snow clothes, oh well!

Ruth catching a little air.

The first few times they went down they literally ended up ON the neighbor's fence. Since mom didn't really want to do that Ruth decided to build a wall of snow as a barrier. She even slid down it first to prove that it would hold. Somehow her weight compared to mine is not really a fair test but I decided to try it anyway!

Coming down...

OK, I landed pretty hard....

...but it was fun anyway! I love sledding!

Crazy landings

What fun! You are awesome at risking life and limb to hang with your kiddos. Good job at making memories with them and staying young. Love you so!
