On the Slopes

They had only 'box sledded' in Guam and were quite hopeful to sled ride in the snow.
Wishes were granted today as the sky uleashed a wonderful snowfall to provide lots of fluffy stuff to sled ride.
So equipped with only inflatable rafts from Guam, we set out for the 'slopes', or a local park rather.
All the same to this crew, they had a ton of fun.

I didn't take too many photos while we were out there.
Riding was a priority for me too!

There was a lot of snow flying around under the sleds!
A few wipe outs here and there. Stella even (accidentally) took out a little Japanese girl.
The little thing was knocked right out of her boots and fell flat into the snow, creating a slight international incident.
A few kind words, bowing and handshakes, seemed to repair the damage done.

Later we asked Stella, "Was the snow and sled riding everything you dreamed it would be Stella?"

"yes" was her simple reply.
There really could be no finer gift this year for us than to catch up from winters lost and enjoy the snowfall.
So, maybe we'll see you out there on the slopes tomorrow eh?
