"The Incident"

We finally got some snow (well ice) around here. Caroline has been waiting for so long for the snow to come, everytime I promise her, it never ends up happening. Well today was the day! It sleeted all day and this afternoon, Michelle made the trip to get "snowed in" with us. We got the sleds down from the attic, these are the same metal and wood sleds that were mine as a child and I am sure would have been recalled these days. (Not to worry, I recalled them myself after "the incident") We got all bundled up to go play outside. The ground was as hard as a rock and very slippery. Michelle and Caroline made the first trip down the very small hill on our street and...






it all went well.....and then Michelle decided she wanted to go down by herself and that's when it happened....

Which led to....



I can say the pictures do not do it justice, I have never seen such a bump, nor have a seen a 30 something try to belly flop onto a sled and face plant into the concrete. :) But it was all in good fun and she is sitting with me as I type, so this is not at her expense. Love you Shell Bell!
