Wordy Wednesday #47

Down With Sledding, Dude
Snow Play

Sledding Break

Skating Queen

Ah, the lure of the snow on a three-day weekend. Thanks to that teacher work day -- again, do the teachers not work during school days? -- we drove up to Reno and Tahoe for sledding, skiing and skating. The kids had a blast. Eldest learned to ski and can't wait to go again. They all went sledding. And Daughter got to skate on the outdoor rink at Squaw Valley in the middle of a blizzard. Hard as they tried to keep the plowing on pace with the snowing, they never managed to stay ahead. Youngest groaned and moaned the entire ski/skate day, so he just made my day fun, fun, fun. I just turned up the mp3 player and pretended I was in a whinge-free zone.
