A boat (but not a sailboat):
There were lots of entries this year!
The purple car won "Most Colorful Sled":
One of my favorites! This won a prize for best construction (it held up well sledding!)
Winner of "Most Decorated Sled"
They made it downhill (for the most part):
Our toddler's cardboard boat won a prize:
Beautiful blue skies!
Waiting for the egg hunt on the playground:
My girls, waiting:
And they're off! I love the energy- can you see the forward momentum?
We had chili and hot dogs for lunch:
We forgot our actual sled. My youngest tried to sled without one:
Big sister borrowed a sled,
She enjoyed spills (the pink flying off the green saucer):
Look at the awesome vintage Evinrude snowmobile!
Passing a Carriage Tour barn:
A new building is going up!
There is a very tiny reflection of our sled in that mirror:
We hadn't snowmobiled this way yet this winter:
Phil has both girls- our youngest sits in front, facing him, and our four year old sits behind him. I knelt in the sled to keep the cardboard sleds from flying out. It would have been a more comfortable ride with more snow on the ground. The sound of plastic on bare road is not my favorite!
Some very bare roads:
I took some pictures of trees during the ride; this was the most interesting tree shot:
I love this picture!
Both cardboard sleds (and yours truly) got sprayed. The roads were wet- and it's not just water on Mackinac Island roads, if you know where I'm going with that. Last year's cardboard sled came inside with us afterward- this year's sleds did not reenter our home. (But the stick horse is fine!)
Today, there was a Winter Festival brunch and carnival at the school. We were heading over and fortunately passed another family who informed us the kids games were done early. So... we turned back and did our own family carnival after dinner!
Daddy made her Super!
A variation on musical chairs (to the tune of Hamsterdance!)
Anyone else watch Bozo growing up?
Coins for prizes! Little sister gravitated toward shiny pennies while big sister went for quarters. I love the difference between the worlds of a 2 year old and 4 year old!
We ended the night with Neapolitan ice cream :)
