Mt. Hood Adventures

Winter is not my cup of tea, but I could handle a day like this every now and then. It was perfect. Blue skies, a small hill at the bottom of a big mountain, and some snow (really exciting stuff for these southerners).

We headed to Mt. Hood (a little over an hour away) and found tons of areas that offer sledding and skiing, but not too much snow yet. There was one ski resort open, but we ended up using a hill we found at a resort that hasn’t opened yet. It was Caroline’s first snow adventure and she loved it (although we had to leave before she ATE all of the snow on the hill…).

We are so glad to have Micah here for Thanksgiving, especially Caroline. She loves having an extra playmate around.

Jacob did not hold back when it came to sledding. He made ramps that sent him flying over fallen logs.

Snowball fights and igloos were highlights of the day.

Caroline tried so hard to get in on the snowball action, but they kept sticking to her gloves.

Exciting and exhausting day, but we are so thankful to have our closest friends to take on new adventures with in Portland!
