Sledding in Noblesville







Let's go
sledding!





We bundle up
and grab the sleds.



Amelia
told us about
this great sledding hill
in Noblesville!





We get there...

...and we're daunted!






The steepest
sledding slope
we've ever seen!






We watch
for a moment
in awe...




...watching
people
speed down
on sleds...






...on rafts...






...on discs...




...and on bellies...






We watch them
crash....







...and crash...






...and crash!






Then there's
the trudge
back up
the frozen hill.






- Looks like fun!
says Nicky.









- Who goes first?








- I will!
says TJ.








Whoa!!!!!!






- loved it!








- Me next!
says Al.







Aaaaa...!






Let's give
Calvin a try!





- This is
pretty cool!





- Way cool!








Yaaaaaaa!








Nicky
is ready
to try...






Omigosh!







- I'm proud
of you, Sis!














- Now let's see
how fast
I can go!

- or if I can
do it spinning!






Al tries
going faster....






We are
having
great fun!


But what about
Cousin Isabella?






- Are you
sure this
is safe?






- Sure, 'Bella.

It's not even scary...





We did it!



But where's Calvin?





Here he comes!





- Man!

That was great!









Bella goes again....





..and Nicky...








Look out
below!!!!







TJ and Calvin
decide to race....






Calvin
takes
an early lead...





...but he
loses
a mitten...







...and
his sled!









- I win!






Al
comes
crashing down
close behind them...




...and takes a break
in the snow chair.






- Waddaya think, Nicky?

Ready to go home?






- I need
one more run.
says TJ.




Push off fast....






Straight
down the hill!






....going right
for Mom!




- LOOK OUT!!!






Hit the sign...

















TJ is down!









But look!
He's back up again!






That
was
awesome!





- Let's go
for
hot chocolate!

.....

...



...and a nap...
