Snow much fun!

Emma woke up feeling better than I thought she would today. I heard her cough a few times during the night, but she woke up feeling fairly good.

This morning Gage attended a free Cross-training basketball camp at the YMCA. There were a couple hundred kids there, but despite the high numbers, it was actually pretty well organized. Gage seemed to enjoy it. He has alot of practicing he needs to do though! He seems to be a bit uncoordinated when it comes to dribbling the basketball. I'll try to post those pictures tomorrow, along with a little video I took.

This afternoon Gage and Emma decided it was a good day for sledding so we went to the sledding hill and had some fun. It actually wasn't too great for sledding, because the fresh snow we got the other day wasn't packed down enough to go very fast. I guess that's probably a good thing when learning to snowboard. Last year Gage would step on his board and immediately jump off after it started to move. Look at him now!


I was surprised at how well Gage did on his snowboard today! He could ride it all the way down the hill.


Little Emma was doing a pretty good job on it as well. (Yes, I know her snow pants are too short! I'm in the process of finding some new snowpants that match her new coat and mittens.)


It's a race to see who can make it to the bottom first without falling down!



Believe it or not, I'm getting an "I Love You" note instead of an "I hate you Mom!" :-) I had to get a picture of that!



Time for a snack break! Alexandra, Gage and Emma enjoying a little bit of snow. They were ticked off when I told them we wouldn't need to go to Dairy Queen now!

Go Emma, Go!

The kids had a good time. Even Mom attempted to go down the hill standing up in a sled. I did wipe out and took a nice tumble, but I got back on the horse to show it who was boss. I made it down the hill, but only because I was going at snail speed! :-) I didn't break anything, so that is good!
