The sky was amazingly clear and blue, the winds were sporadic but strong when they blew, and the hill we chose, less than a block away from the house, and next to Lawrence High School's football field, was a pristine steep slope of white. It was tricky, a little treacherous and pretty exhausting, especially after the driveway and sidewalks were shoveled out. But damn, it was fun to discover how crazy and reckless my kids really are. Ben is the speed freak, while Sophie is the serious optimist, hurtling down a steep slope and hoping for the best.
I just tried to stay out of the way while I shot some photos with my Blackjack.
