Our Snowday & Crazy Snow Video!



Today was a glorious snowday for my entire family!  I had written before about my family resolutions for 2013, which included getting more active and eating better.  Yesterday, I wrote about the large snowfall in the Greater Toronto Area and discussed some of my childhood memories.  Well, today was for making new memories with the kids!  From playing in a snow fort in a snowbank, to taking out the crazy carpets to fly down our local hill! 
 

Crazy Carpeting!
Even Mamma got a solo run down the hill, which you can see in the video above!  But I stick by the motto: "The Family that plays together, stays together!", as this was definitely a family day filled with fun, laughter, and teamwork.  Someone remind me to buy a pair of snowpants: my backside was totally soaked!  However, it was a beautifully sunny day and the sun felt wonderful on my face!

I hope that when our kids are older that they remember the quality time we spent together.  My oldest son remarked as we were leaving today: "Mommy, this was my best day sledding ever!"  He wanted me to ask why, so I did...I was hoping that he was going to say because we were all together.  Instead, he noted it was his best day ever because he got to go down the crazy, bumpy hill.  I hope when he is a much older man, he remembers the crazy, bumpy hill...and that we all did it together.

    1. Megan, I also have great memories of sledding down a gigantic hill. Flying down a hill with 5 kids piled into one sled, those were the days!

  10. I'm so glad someone else enjoys the snow. We just moved away from it, to the East coast where there are beaches and sun year round. My kids love the snow, but my Husband and I hate it. It looks like ya'll had some fun!

  11. My best memory as a kid was my parents and I sitting on 1 toboggan sled and ran right into the only tree (luckily it was tiny but man those pine needles are prickly) at the bottom of the hill =P
