It's Sunday night and we just put Ryder to bed after a LONG weekend of snow-playing, chilli-eating, sled-going, snow cream-making, wintry kind of last few days. It has been a weekend to remember, and it looks like they finally got it right about the weather! We have played hard the last two days and we have the red cheeks to show for it! We weren't sure how long the snow would last, so we wanted to make sure that we got all of our snow-playing in! After seeing all of the footage I caught on camera and video, I wanted to show everyone the fun that we had been having. I will try to put my video-uploading skills to work, but bare with me, as I haven't been successful lately! I have recently discovered Youtube and Vimeo to aid in uploading videos, but as you can see from the recent changes in my blog, (i.e: new header, background, and I even tried adding custom font which failed, as well as adding a cool signature, but that didn't work either!) I had some extra free time while Scot was gone this past week, and got the wild hair to make some changes. I may have to take an html class or two to really understand how to do cool things to my blog, but for now this will do, and I will continue to try my skills at adding video. Let me know if anyone has suggestions!
Since it was my Sunday to serve this morning, I wasn't sure how the roads were going to be, and so I was relieved to get an email from our church last night that said all services were cancelled for today. We woke up to a much sunnier day, but the roads were still covered in snow and ice! After a long, lazy morning cuddling in bed together, we finally got dressed in our fleece and decided to check out the road conditions. We needed a few things at Target, so Scot put his New Hampshire-driving skills to use, and we loaded up the Jeep, and headed out. There were some areas that were okay to drive on, and others that hadn't even been driven on, so they were covered in packed snow, which made me a little nervous, and glad that I wasn't the one driving!
We made it to Target safely, and were able to get two new games for our Wii, which Scot and I were happy to have to help prevent our cabin fever! We got back home and went out to play in the snow again, savoring every last bit of our fun snow weekend. Since the snow had gotten softer from the sun, we took Ryder to a different area to try out his sled. Scot stayed at the bottom of the hill while I hiked it, pulling him behind in his sled.
Check out the video below! That was one happy little man sledding down the "mountain" Oh, and bare with Scot's narrating, as he does a bad job directing me what to do haha.. this wasn't as easy climbing without falling as it looks!
This one is of my dare-devil husband as he got brave yesterday and decided to try snowboarding in our backyard. I think he got this idea from an episode of MTV's "Jackass"
This video is more of Ryder in his awesome sled. Thanks again Nana & PawPaw! We heard there was a shortage of sleds, and we had checked EVERYWHERE for one, so we wouldn't have had nearly all the fun without it!
And this is one of me pushing Ryder along in the street
Well, I just got an email that we have postponed work an hr tomorrow, so looks like it's back to the real world tomorrow! The end of the cabin fever is near. Hope everyone had a great weekend and we love you guys! Enjoy our family videos
