Today I wanted to get the girls outside because after "daddy's weekend of fun" they seemed extra bored just hanging around the house. So I got them all ready and we took a walk down the street to the ever exciting...Post Office! Where I picked up our usual junk mail and then we headed back home. However the girls didn't quite seem satisfied with our trip (can't imagine why...who doesn't love the post office?) so we stopped to play in our yard for a bit before heading back inside.

I took out the baby sled and pulled Payden around while Ashlyn and Sydnie tried to climb up the icy hill. When we had all made it to the top Ashlyn decided to slide down on her back (trying to recreate that fun day with dad I'm sure). But Sydnie and Payden just stared at me blankly so I decided to give them a little fun and let them go down in the sled. It is a really small hill...more like a bump in our yard, perhaps a huge mole made it...who knows? But I certainly did not think it was dangerous in any way.

I put them both in the sled and gave them a light push. They started down fine, then suddenly like crazy bobsled racers they took a sharp left straight towards the metal cables attached to the power poles.
Seeing their plight I immediately burst into action and started running after them. However as I attempted to run one foot would break through the icy snow layer only to try and catch myself with the other foot on the icy layer, to slip, to break through again, to slip and so I went down the miniature mole hill after my children who's sled had now taken a sharp right and where cutting sideways across the hill clear of the power lines.

It was now I who was in danger and headed straight for the cables unable to stop myself as I tripped and slipped my way down. In order to avoid just smashing into the cables I grabbed hold of them and half fell onto them only to look over and see my girls bouncing around in that sled and quickly coming face to face with a large pine tree. There was nothing I could do as I struggled to regain my balance and watched them come to a stop via a tree.

Sydnie and Payden seemed clueless that anything abnormal had happened (guess that tells you something) and I pulled myself to my feet, looked around to see if any passersby had fallen to their knees laughing and decided to promptly ended mommy's day of danger fun.
