Sledding with the Eppersons

The Eppersons came up for New Year's this year. It was so much fun. Total chaos most of the time, so while all three babies slept we needed some big-kid fun. First we headed to the BYU-I sledding hill which was shear ice, truly, I could hardly walk. So no sleds were needed there - wherever you happened to fall down was where your ride began.

This is Ellie coming through the tunnel of death. It looked taller than it was, so everyone that came out had a bruise on their head, and was saying "I bit my tongue"!

Next we headed to Smith Park for a smaller hill and fewer casualties. The kids had so much fun. I had a pretty good laugh myself. They would start out holding on to eachother in a big sled-island, and end up sprawled all over the place. As long as they missed the jump, everyone was all smiles.

We are so thankful that Patti decided to make the trip. It was no small feat, but we really enjoyed having them. We hope they will come back when all their bruises heal, maybe next time we can tackle the sand dunes!
