It's hard to believe that we have lived in Chicago for five years and have never been sledding down a hill. We rectified that this afternoon! Of course, true to form, Kate had major trauma with getting into the gear required for snowy outdoor activity. It took nearly 45 minutes to get her into long underwear, pants, shirt, sweatshirt, snow pants, coat, hat and mittens. Getting her to actually walk out the door was....challenging.
After wedging Kate into her carseat, we drove the short distance to the hill at Montrose and headed up!

Lucy was a bit apprehensive but we got her on there:

Before long they observed the older kids going down face first so...you know where this is going.

We had a fabulous time and I think some more sleds are in order as one sled for four people was a pain after a bit. We came home, enjoyed some hot chocolate and then the girls listened to books on their Nooks while Len and I got in a bit of grown-up reading. A perfect Sunday.
