Snow tubing!

This winter has been a little lackluster from the perspective of snowfall.  Even though it's ridiculously cold, we've usually been able to rely on some snow, but not so much this year.  And that's really cut down on the amount of outdoor-time we've had. so we decided to do something about it.

I've been bugging Joacim to try skiing, but he's a bit resistant (probably because we're old and "owies" hurt a lot more than they used to :) so we headed to Buck Hill and spent a couple of hours in the fresh (albeit chilly) air.

The was clearly giddy on the first run up the hill.

When we first arrived there weren't that many people and hardly any waiting, but as the afternoon went on, the lines grew...

I was a little worried that we'd get there and she'd be scared to go down by herself.  Luckily, I was completely wrong ;)

Here's Joacim heading down the hill while Izzy and I watched:
