It finally snowed today and we went sledding in Prospect Park. It was a really intimate moment for us and we had some great conversations while riding down the white hills together. Carl and Bryce spent our first royalty check on a "Snow Boat" and it really did make the whole afternoon so much better. Plus, the Boat was reasonably priced and had some nice features. It came with a tow rope and my lower back is still thanking the manufacturer for that one! The ultimate highlight of the day had to be the train we made with a bunch of urban kids. We all sat on our sleds, tubes, and saucers and linked arms and legs and rode down the hill together. It was so fun to be laughing and throwing snowballs at each other as we slid softly down the hill. We got into a huge fist fight at the bottom of the hill and bloody noses were handed out generously. Clay and Scott spent the next two or three hours late in the day making a jump on the hill. They discussed returning to the jump later that night and pouring water on it so it would be ice the next day, but instead, they went home and ate pizza rolls and fell asleep watching Quantum Leap. Yes, they showered before bed. This was exactly what the HOTTDOGS needed.
