Winter Fun

video

We took the boys out tobogganing yesterday and we all had a blast! Who knew that you could have fun in winter. It helped of course that we had gorgeous weather for this time of year!

When we got home Jamin said that maybe we could do this again next year. I told him that maybe we could do it again this year and he was pretty excited about that. I think I need to get them outside more. Once a year? lol

Towards the end of the video you might notice Ethan going down the hill too. He's on the left.
