Saturday sunshine

the plan on Saturday was to spend it outside to enjoy the GLORIOUS sun!!

we started out the day snowshoeing in a family fun race

a pre race rest



of course i didn’t get any pictures of us during the race…..because i couldn’t possibly carry the camera and snow shoe at the same time!  And even thought he race was only a mile…..it was long! Cooper hopped in the sled about 20 steps into the race, we slowly started taking clothes off because we were working up a sweat, the first part of the race was downhill and unfortunately the last part was uphill! We didn’t give up….and i learned that i need to be less frustrated and more encouraging when my little ones get discouraged…..we finished the race together with smiles on our faces…and we can’t wait for next year’s race!

next on the agenda……Nana and Grampa’s house for some snowmobiling!


at one point cooper looked up from diggng the snow and said, “ahhh, a nice summer day!”

Caroline and Cooper learned how to go together on the sled….and this was hours of fun!!! and hubby and i were actually able to have a conversation!

if you look closely at this picture you will notice the four wheeler to the right is through the ice….and his buddies are taking pictures of him….after a few comical attempts they pulled him out.
