Wordless Wednesday – What Goes Down, Must Go Up

by Janice

P.S. No – we don’t have that much snow. All our snow has melted. This was on our New Year’s Vacation. After a day of cross country skiing with his dad and cousins, Jackson still had enough energy to toboggan for a couple of hours. It was getting dark, but Jackson still didn’t want to go in. I don’t blame him – I tried that hill out. It was a great hill!

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

I am sure it was more fun coming down the hill then going back up, but I take it all the fun coming down just made it more worthwhile going all the way up again. Thanks for sharing and happy WW.

Come share my daughter’s close encounter ;-)

The least favorite part… having to come back up the hill! You must have sent all the snow to us- we’ve had quite a bit every day and I love it!

My kids would be loving that hill! I’m a first time Wordless Wednesday girl – it was fun. Our 9+ lives cat gave me good camera fodder this morning when he decided to get a drink from the center of our partially frozen pond. How do cat’s know when the ice is thick enough to walk on?

That is a beautiful picture. Sometimes I think it would be nice to live in a place that it snows for my childrens sake. They don’t get to experience things like that….but then I realize I would take the heat any day! For me, Snow is something you visit. :)

Oh how I miss the snow! I grew up in Illinois and loved dragging my sled up and down those hills full of snow! This is a great word picture that even through we experience the “down” times in life – this too shall pass – and the “up” times are next. Blessings sweet sisiter!

I am so jealous! LOL We have had barely an inch of snow here in Connecticut all winter! My little one is begging to use her sled but it’s only ice/mud sledding for us this year I think…

I’m here in the deep south and we NEVER see any thing like that. It’s beautiful. But having grown up in a warm place, I’m not sure my thin blood could take so much cold. Sure looks fun, though.

How fun… What a perfect hill for sledding! I’ll bet he climbed up that hill countless times, huh?
Happy WW!

Wow. That looks like some hill. We have a huge hill out back, but not that big. We do however have LOTS of snow.

A great picture! Lots of fun! He’s a brave soul! My girls chickened out on a little hill nearby. Oh well, maybe it’ll grown on them in the future. :0)

48 Amber January 31, 2007 at 10:03 pm

Man am I jealous!! That is the hill of my dreams. Growing up in a Boston suburb, we had no open hills like that and were forced to improvise. So we’d sled down ambitious paths forged in the woods, over rocks, branches and other pointy things, and sometimes diretly into trees (ouch). I’m glad to see that Jackson appreciated his good fortune and made the most of it :)

49 Tammy January 31, 2007 at 11:43 pm

That looks SO fun! But it makes me tired just thinking about trudging back up! :)

Awww… HOW FUN!!! I am jealous and so is Joey!! We haven’t had a good snow in YEARS and we are in Wyoming!! We are in the middle of the longest running drought in the history of our area and I am really tired of it!! When I was little we sledded our little hearts out, built snowmen and snow forts, and always had snow days. He’s had one snow day in the two years he’s been in school!! I am so sad he hasn’t gotten to experience the fun of a truly snowy Winter!
