We sorta feel like we've been gipped out of winter this year.
Our snowfall has been (to put it mildly) lackluster.
With no snow to speak of in the valley,
we headed up to Soldier Hallow in Midway
to take the chillins tubing.
We called to make sure that they had enough of the white stuff
up there to warrant sledding.
Indeed they did.
Now be it man made or from mother nature?
At this stage in the game
we cared not.
If you live locally and haven't been,
It is one of the best family activities
because it really is soooo fun for everyone.
My kids range in age from senior in high school to first grader
and everyone loved it.
Even Momma and Daddy
|(although often momma felt like she was going 75 miles too fast for her liking |
and was going to keel over the edge and break a hip)
It was a bit scary for me the first run.
You do go super fast
but it is a silky smooth ride.
The tube is like riding on a bouncy luxurious,
(in a plasticky, rubber sort of way)
Smith wasn't scared in the slightest.
He choose the slickest, fastest run
He even went down a few times attached to Dre,
who took a running diving leap to pick up speed.
The crazy little banshee has no fear!
There's even a tow to pull you up.
Which eliminates the dreaded 15 minute hike up,
15 second ride down.
And enough open space for little boys
who have to go potty every 10 minutes...
|Daddy got cropped :(|
So all in all,
it was a good good day!
Most definitely passed the Snowden scrutiny.
And since Mother Nature decided to throw us a snowy bone
I bet the tubing is even mo betta...
