What would a winter in New England be without a bit of sledding and snow play? This winter hasn't proved particularly challenging in regards to snowfall, so far, but we have had a few little storms here and there. Just enough to make for some good sledding and corgi play. Fortunately, for us, we have a farm a town over that devotes a hill to sledding, skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling. Quite generously they allow anyone to use the hill and to boot, on the weekends they have an open fire to get yourself sufficiently thawed out before you tackle the hill again. Of course, this mum sits contentedly and knits in the comfort of her truck, after snapping pictures and capturing those thrilling moments when kids are racing down the hill, sleds spinning out of control ---shrieks of laughter heard all the way from the top of the hill to the very bottom. I love hearing their belly laughter!
I must say an afternoon of climbing and sledding makes for wonderfully sleepy children that evening. And hot cocoa and cookies never tasted more delicious than after a full afternoon of snow play.
