Fun in the Snow

A few weeks ago we took the kids up to Brianhead to go tubing. They have wanted to go tubing and play in the snow all winter and we figured driving to Brianhead would be a lot easier than finding tubes and snow to do it ourselves. We had such a fun day and I loved that we didn't have to drag the kids and their tubes up a bunch of big hills.

The kids absolutely loved tubing down the hill. Ashten was a little nervous at first. She would only go on the kids lane, but after a few runs she was ready to try the faster, more advanced lanes. Treyson didn't care how fast he went, he said he kept his eyes shut the whole time anyways. And Traxton spent the whole time wedged in his tube. I don't think he quite understood why we kept pushing him down a big hill, but he didn't care either way. He actually fell asleep in his tube a got a good little nap.

The kids keep saying that next time they want to go skiing so they can ride the lift. It didn't really work when we told them that they were too little to ski since we saw practically toddlers skiing like pros all around us. I don't think we are ready to attempt skiing. Maybe we can hold them off with just tubing for a few more years. I'm crossing my fingers.
