Fun in the Snow

This past Saturday, while the boys were at my in-laws, Matt and I met up with a great couple that we are friends with from church, John & Angie.

We'd made plans weeks before to go tobogganing, but with the impending snow storm, we weren't sure if we'd make it. Well, we decided if we didn't go then, we'd never go, so we made the 30 minute drive to the toboggan run, The Fridge, in Waterford, MI. It was nearly empty when we arrived and we had fairly good weather the entire time.

We rode a total of 6 times in various teams and groups...all 4 of us, boys vs. girls, couples, etc. We even got to race a few times as they opened a second shoot later in our visit. It was so nice to just be outside, do something we never get to do, spend time with couples and not really talk about the kids much...ahhh. I think I got a glimpse of what life will be life in 15 years.

After riding a while and warming up with hot cocoa, we decided to grab a bite to eat and relax. Despite the storm which left 4 new inches of snow on our lawn, it was really a great weekend!!

Sounds as though you had a great time. While we all love the kids time spent with adult friends is important too.

I'm happy for you.

Looks like fun! Glad you and Matt had time to do it, and also time to work on the boys rooms, they were so excited to see what you had done when they got home. Love Mom K.

It sounds like you had a really nice time together! Isn't it nice to have adult time occasionally? We all need it now and then that's for sure.
