We took Cadence and Cooper sledding yesterday. We've been meaning to do so for the month of January and finally did on the last day of the month. Cooper fell asleep on the way there! Too bad for him. He missed out big time!!!
We drove about a mile from our house to a park on cliffside with big, steep hills.
At first, we showed Cadence a smaller hill on which to sled.
She rode down the hill with Dad the first time and said it was "bumpy."
Then Dad asked her if she wanted to go by herself and she did!
We slid down the hill for about a half hour and then Dad said he wanted to take Cadence down "the big hill."
The hill was a steep, long, monster hill that is so fun...for adults and teens. Notice the little figures at the top of the hill are Chris and Cadence.
I thought if Chris was on the sled with Cadence, they would be ok. They hiked up to the top of the hill and Chris tried to get Cadence to go down with him. She said, "No. You go, Dad." So Chris zoomed down the hill yelling excitedly and hiked back up to Cadence. At the top Chris asked Cadence to go down with him again. This time her reply was, "I am going by myself." Chris agreed. I screamed from the bottom the hill to NOT let her go by herself. I thought it was much too dangerous and scary for a 2 1/2 yr-old. Chris, however, did NOT listen to me and put Cadence on the sled and pushed her down ALL BY HERSELF!!! Once again, Cadence LOVED IT! What a dare devil!!! She asked to go down again by herself and this time I got a video of it. She seriously is a sledding queen!
She talked about it all day Saturday and Sunday, and showed this video to every person who came over. Cadence has asked multiple times to go again. We definitely will and she will definitely continue to be a brave sledding queen!!!
