One of our favourite features of our new house — one that might strike other people as unusual — is that there’s a hill in our backyard. Its sort of an odd slope, and certainly makes lawn maintenance a challenge, but when I saw it, I immediately thought: sledding in the winter, slip-and-side in the summer!
Yesterday, Ben and I got all our winter gear on, and stomped out into the snow, and across our backyard to do a little sledding. Our hill is perfect — just the right height so that you can get some good speed up, but not so high as to be scary. We had a blast!
