It's a snow day today. We got about a foot of snow up here in the North Pole. What do you do with 5 teenagers on a day like this? Go shoveling around the town. To make it fun, we incorporated the "Snow Olympics". After each driveway was completely shoveled, we would participate in an event...
The first event of the day was the "Snow Hucking" contest. It was to see who could throw a shovel full of snow the furthest.
Guess who won? The Cop. My hunk 'hucked' it the furthest.
We had the 400 meter dash around this fun friend's house. You had to be on the look out for dog 'land mines', slippery slopes and bushes. Good times. I took a big digger around one of the corners and lost to Kaleb.
Ever try running through snow in boots and snow clothes? It makes a dash turn into more of a saunter. Kaleb took first in his size 14 clod hoppers. (and we may or may not have broken her fence at the start of the race)
More shoveling...(I think we shoveled 5 driveways for the day)
Not really sure what you call THIS event...snow diving?
This was the long jump...
Bonus points for those who jumped with a chocolate covered rice crispy in their mouth.
We ended with an all out snow ball fight.
In the closing ceremonies, we built a GIANT snowman, and went inside to see who could chug a cup of hot chocolate the fastest.
