EPIC Sledding

 

Oh Vacation…

I miss you already.

I LOVE winter vacation. It makes the day after Christmas not seem so bad, honestly! I’m the type of person who loves anticipation! That’s why I hate surprises….well, and also because I’m pretty nosey. But it’s nice to have something to look forward to in between Christmas and my birthday.

Seriously, I LOVE winter vacation.

And sledding. I LOVE sledding.

Oh vacation.

We are super lucky, because my Mama Emily and my Papa Jeff have a condo on Beech Mountain, within walking distance of Ski Beech. It’s pretty sweet. We’ve been going up there for a few years, but this was the first year there was snow! (Go figure) So in between games of Monopoly

But back to sledding!

It was epic. And FREE! We were going to all go tubing, but it was 20 bucks each! So we spent $30 total for 3 sleds and spent the day “grinding the slopes”.

It’s pretty amazing how EXHAUSTING sledding can be! And yes, I did squeal every single time I went down!

Haha, love these! Being a NC girl I can totally relate and it looks like you had such fun. Very wise decision on the $30 purchase.

Your vacation looks like a lot of fun! All that exercise is good for the waistline. :)
