Brendan and Pete headed out early after having discovered the sweet spot for sledding the day before in our massive front yard. It seems funny even calling it a “yard”, anything but “property” doesn’t seem an expansive enough of a term. I miss our old yard … closer to the street, closer to neighbors, a more cozy, connected feeling to the neighborhood in general. But that’s for another post! Anyway, with a little help from Dan next door, they were able to create THE best sledding track yet and once it was done, Brendan came running in for me to call all the kids over. Pete simply said “Build it and they will come.” And they did. And it was a blast! Later named SledFest 2010, here are some highlights. It’s days like this that make me feel better and better about our new ‘hood!
Things even got a little extreme at one point!
