Mt. Baldy

During our winter break we also took a trip to Mt. Baldy to play in the snow. Steve bought a sled at Costco prior to the trip. It only took an hour to get to our snowy destination and we found a patch of snow off the side of the road to play in.

Here is Steve carefully and dutifully pulling the kids on an icy patch.

Steve and Anna were more in the mood for speed while Sam and I watched with hunched shoulders.

But seriously, out of the four of us, I was least comfortable in the snow. Visions of living in the snow and walking to and from work in Japan and slipping every so often came back to me.

This was not the most powdery stuff this day, but even Sam loved trouncing in it.

We found a premade snowman and added our own carrot-and-raisin touches to it.

Sam joined in on the snowman fun as well.

It was fun for a day bundling up in our warmest gear, to enjoy the brisk weather.

Before we left Mt. Baldy we hiked a bit further up the mountain, where we found a crowd of sledders going down a slick hill. Steve and Anna took their turn on it and found themselves doing several 360's before reaching the bottom, I wish I had a video of it!

Mt. Baldy, a nice quick trip to the snow.

That looks like so much fun! At the end of the month when Yumi and I head to the snow, will Steve pull us on the sled?
