Sledding Fun!

Kenna waiting patiently for Dave to finish shoveling the driveway so we could go sledding!

This was Kenna's favorite kind of sledding (no scary hills to go down!)

I am feeling a little bit like a slacker lately seeing as how it has been a while since I have posted, but you know when you are so busy with day-to-day life, and nothing is interesting enough to post about? That is pretty much how things have been around here.
Yesterday was President's Day, and Dave had the day off so we decided to make it a fun one. It had snowed the night before, and even though we all seriously have spring fever, we decided to take advantage of the snow while it lasts. We went sledding!
Our neighborhood really is awesome, not only do we have hiking and mountain biking right out of our neighborhood, but we have a sledding hill too. It was so funny because McKenna enjoyed sledding but she was also scared of it. Each time we were at the top of the hill McKenna would shake her head and say no she didn't want to go down. But then she would go down and have fun! McKenna isn't exactly brave when it comes to things like this. This activity really was a whole family event because Gauge would chase us as we sled down the hill. After we had sledded for a while Dallin and Ella, my nephew and niece came out to sled too. McKenna was inspired by her cousins because after she watched them go down the hill a couple of times she wanted to do it more too! I think she figured they looked like they were having fun and weren't too scared so it must not be too bad after all.
