Snow Day!!

Boxing day we were greeted by snow. It came down thick and fast, but didn't settle. so after a few minutes running around in it. we thought nothing else off it.



We were then told, that a nearby Country Park, had lots of snow still, and it was perfect for sledging. I of course, then went on a hunt to find a sledge. Once I had one, I headed off with J. Little S and daddy were not well, so stayed at home keeping warm.
 
 
S wanted to come too, but she had a fever that wouldn't budge, and Daddy was off sick from work, so she kept him company cuddled up on the settee watching Dinosaur train.
 
                         
 
Good old google took us to the car park, and thankfully the roads were de-iced leading up to it, however the car park, did have compact slow/ice... so was fun to walk on. The sky was clear, the sun was getting lower, and it made for some stunning photos.


 
To get to the sledging hill, we had to walk up a path of compact snow, this was a challenge in itself, and provided a few giggles. It also had untouched snow along the fence, which was perfect for making snowballs.... especially ones to throw at mummy.
 
 
After a few slips and slides from J on the ice, she asked to copy to the other kids and be pulled up the hill, it was actually really easy, so didn't mind at all. Although she did almost take me out a few times when it tried to overtake me.

 
We soon made it to the sledging hill, and J started to get nervous. I decided to try her on a little slope, which is actually designed for people to walk up the hill, but no one was using it, it meant it had more snow then the main hill itself, and it was quieter too, so she didn't have to go to the top.



At the bottom of this little hill, was a half built snowman.... perfect brick wall for J so she wouldn't go near the field wall with barbed wire...

 
I managed to get a shot of her mid mini scream as she came down...


It was great fun... even when she missed the snowman wall, and went up the little hill next to it, and down the other side and along the other path, just like a toboggan. My heart skipped a beat, as I had heard horror stories of barbed wire, so after that I told J if she went past the snowman she had to fall out..... which she did even when she hit it then...

 
She loved it. J did not want to leave, but did wish that S and Daddy could join us. So fingers crossed they are better before it melts....


We only stopped as she needed the loo. Thankfully the visitors centre was open, as was their loo's.
 


The sledging hill looked stunning with the sun shinning down, but I know that is bad news if we want to visit again. The field was filled with laughter from all ages, with tots on parents laps, and grandparents racing too. I know for sure, we will be returning next time we have a sprinkling... what a great way to spend the gap between Christmas and New Year.

  2. Ah this looks like such a lovely day! I used to absolutely love snow days, although they're a bit more boring as you get older eh. I'm sure there will be plenty more snow days for S and Daddy T to join you both on :)

  12. Great pictures. We've never been to Teggs Nose but we must make the effort as we're not far from there. You were lucky to find some snow!

  13. It was such a lovely day :) I can remember seeing you both having a great time. That path was so slippy back to the car park and with the barbed wire you had to be careful to not tumble into it. The hill is fab though isn't it. OH is from Macc so it was his idea to go. Hopefully it will snow again and we will go back - will look out for you ;)

  15. This looks lovely, I'm so jealous of the snow, we've had nothing here in Cornwall. It looks like the perfect place to go sledging though, and so many people there to offer encouragement. It's a shame that dad and S could come along but I bet it was lovely that you had some mummy-daughter time with J. Thanks for linking up with Country Kids.
