We had nice weather for the day of our snow party. Eric had two basketball games in the morning and got a nice shiner from setting a pick and having the kid’s head smack him in the check bone.
Kathryn watched Eric’s early game and then went to watch Dakota’s basketball game in Dolgeville. She brought Dakota back for the party and an overnight.
We had 30 people – 11 kids; who went sledding, ice skating and sledding again after dark. Adults were split evenly among snowshoers, trekkers, and Lollipop Loopers. Six skiers went out after dinner for a moonlit ski and came back ‘one with nature’. Skip capped off the night with a short fireworks program.
Lollipop Loop , about 2.8 miles of XC skiing.
Everyone went home by 10pm and I got 8 hours of sleep – it couldn’t have worked out better. 😉
