We live where it's nice and warm...

but within a quick drive of places that need this kind of warning signs...
"Snowboarding, sledding, skiing, tubing or other "downhill" activities are prohibited in this park."
This is what is known in legal terms as a "cover your bum clause"
Of course - being the law abiding citizens we are we follow such warnings.

see - they're going UPhill... not down...
early in the trip - M a big helper

that's not downhill...
Later in the trip - W has to lend a hand


Photographic evidence would suggest that we just kept going up that hill all afternoon.  Because we're obedient like that.

Even later still...  umm, lazy M!

there's not even a hill in this one!

and finally:

how'd that get in there?  I think we're technically still safe, because the "down" part of this experience consisted mainly of falling "down" on his heinie... and the evidence is as plain as the nose on your face... or in this case... the snows on his carcass.

who is now going to go turn on the space heater and be grateful for the relative warmth of the day.  Just looking at these pictures makes me cold!

So fun. We absolutely love sledding and we now have a ton of snow to to go "uphill" on. The down side? Wet and cold kids complaining. Other than that, you can't keep us away.

Saimi said...

Hills with 'don't do this' signs are always so much more tempting.

Come on over, I'll show you some real hills.....where it's legal to go so fast your hair catches on fire.

It does look like they had some fun.

That must be the biggest hill ever. All you did was go up. Guess it's a better workout that way....
I'm glad you could get use out of your winter wear!

You guys sure know how to have fun in the desert.

Sher said...

That really did look like a fun hill to sled on -- or occasionally fall down on. I'm glad you had fun.

Cheeseboy said...

Wow, you guys are such rebels. You are lucky the pigs didn't show up and bust your butts. Think of your children behind bars.

This year we completely missed sledding. I feel gypped as it snowed buckets in New England starting the week after we moved (although I'm glad it wasn't the week we DID leave).
