Holy Freaking Cold

We attempted to go sledding today. K had a huge meltdown before we left and refused to wear his snow boots, said it was too sunny outside, you name it. Well, after showing him pictures of Gwen with her Mommy and Daddy sledding...he calmed down and decided he wanted to go sledding too...a box of cookies later and we were in the car and on our way!
When we got to the hill we realized that today probably wasn't the best day for sledding. It was 10 degrees outside and very windy. Unfortunately the hill faced the wind...ouch. It was painfully cold. Certainly not a good idea for a 2 year old. We went down a few times and then Kieran and I sat in the car while Josh and Nevin went down one more time before deciding they had enough.
Oh and I hurt my tail bone...badly. Nevin and I were sliding down together and hit a bump, went flying and my tail bone landed on part of the sled sticking out. I'm still in pain, hours later. I think Nev hit his too. The hills were more like ice than snow from being used a lot. So anyway, it was a fun, but very short time. We'll be going back on a not so windy day. ;)
This is the best picture I got..haha!!

OUCH !!! Sledding and tailbones just don't mix...

The snow looks like much fun though (if it wasn't too cold to enjoy)
