Winter Fun

Friday, December 19, 2008

Once again, I'm looking out my windows to falling snow this morning, and everything is white and beautiful. There's nothing more peaceful and more serene than watching snowflakes fall.

There's also nothing more fun than good old-fashioned sledding, which isn't something we get to do very often here in Portland. The best kind of sledding is safe sledding. I know that's the Mom in me coming out, but although we probably live on one of the steepest hills in Portland, we actually drive to Custer Park on Capital Hill Road to go sledding. It must be one of my favorite parks in SW Portland, and the hills there are ideal for sledding, with absolutely no obstructions or nearby roads. It's perfect!

We're not the only ones who think so. There were many kids, all there with sleds in various shapes, colors, and sizes, sledding down the hills time and time again.

The past couple of days have only been at or above freezing, which means we can stay outdoors for a longer period of time. So, we're off to Custer Park once again today, where Sam will have the time of his life, Juniper will reach for snowflakes and put them in her mouth, and I'll sit close by with Juniper, sipping on a holiday latte, and trying to freeze these moments with Sam and Juni in my memory so I never forget them.

I love that picture of Samuel sledding!!! Did Landon take it? He is getting very good at picture taking.
