Several times before, when there's snow on the ground, I've picked the girls up from the community center with sleds in tow. It's a relatively short walk (0.2 miles?), and mostly flat, so they don't really need the ride. However, it is undeniably fun for them to get a ride, and I can generally use the exercise.
Tonight we're in what may be our first real snow of the season - Emily's basketball game for tomorrow was already cancelled, in fear of it. We weren't out for long - perhaps 40 minutes, total? But in that time we made good progress on icing down our driveway with smooth, fast sled tracks. (I felt really funny reminding Emily not to scrape the snow off the driveway with the sled...perhaps not the best advice if we plan to drive tomorrow.) Cheap fun on a Friday night, with the full moon haze showing through the clouds and deer bounding across the backyard, just a few feet beyond the end of our sled tracks.
