I am not what you would consider adventurous, in fact I am the complete opposite of adventurous! I'm not spontaneous...doing something at the spur of the moment without days or weeks of planning is a foreign concept to me. I'm not the life of the party (Oh I know you so wanted to think that I was, but I'm not)... I am perfectly content watching everyone else go crazy on the dance floor while I sit happily tapping my feet to the music. I hate thrill rides at theme parks...roller coasters scare the crap out of me and I can't stop thinking I'm going to die long enough to enjoy myself ( I am such a wuss) the merry-go-round is about as wild as I'm willing to get. So it's just a given that I've never been sledding down a huge, snow covered hill, screaming my head off, and having the time of my life...UNTIL this week.

On Tuesday we had the mother of all snow/ice storms. When all was said and done we had a total of 10 inches on our front lawn. Of course schools were closed, my fiance couldn't get to work, and there was nothing else to do but suck it up, pile on layers of warm clothes and go outside and play...and play we did.
This is Tay-Tay (she wasn't interested in sledding, all she wanted to do was eat the snow) and Nay-Nay in the background getting ready to go down our neighbor's huge hill.
Here's Nay-Nay having so much fun...she was terrified 30 seconds before this picture was taken!
My fiance wiped out a couple times and you know I couldn't contain my laughter! It was funny stuff.And this crazy person all bundled up flying down the hill? Well that would be me! And not only was I not terrified, but I LOVED it!
