We Needed The Snow

When people think of Colorado they usually assume that we get tons of snow.  This is reallly not the case unless you live up in the mountains. 

We can get three feet of snow and the next day it will be melted. 

We have had very little snow this winter and the children had been complaining that they never even got to go sledding! 

Spring was here and they thought a whole winter would pass without sledding. 

They were so excited to wake up last week and see that we were getting tons of snow. We got a foot but even by the time we went sledding the snow was already melting. 












We had so much fun and the children were thrilled!!!

Sorry for all the pictures…..they were really for Grandma and Grandpa!

    the pictures are great…looks like a ton of fun. we got family sledding in once this winter as well. the first time down, all the snow was slamming little rylee in the face while her daddy was oblivious and smiling behind her. it was a bad way to start! i think i had more fun than they did!

    The picture are adorable! Thank you for sharing. I never mind seeing family pictures. Our families are our lives! I was in the Denver airport for a pit stop to California and on my way back home. The rocky mountains were just beautiful!
