Our family and some friends took a little trip this weekend up to the snow.

Fortunately: we had so much fun

Unfortunately: the snow was crusty & slushy

Fortunately: that really didn’t deter the 15 children in our group from fully enjoying sledding

Unfortunately: I wasn’t able to sled {not that I should have anyway}

Fortunately: the roads were clear and I didn’t have the baby on a mountain pass in a blizzard

Unfortunately: I didn’t have a baby

Fortunately: we ate lots of great food

Unfortunately: we weren’t able to bring the extra ice cream home and it sounds very tasty right now

Most of all, we are so thankful for such a fun group of friends who are willing to endure the chaos of the many children for the sake of wonderful memories.  For that, we feel very fortunate.


  1. Glad you had fun! We were sad that we couldn't be there.

  2. That sounds like a great time!!
