Snowy Fun

This past weekend we joined some friends out on the lake for their 2nd annual "Chili Dump".  If you don't know what a chili dump is, you are not alone.  A chili dump is where you make chili, along with everyone else in attendance and throw it together in one large pot.  Makes for some interesting chili.  The thing is, the chili keeps changing as people keep adding to it.  You can go back for seconds, thirds or fourths and it will taste different each time.
We also enjoyed some winter activities out on the lake in between bites of chili.  There was four-wheeling and sledding behind the four-wheeler.  The kids also enjoyed climbing the ice shoves and pelting unsuspecting sledders with snowballs as they rode by.
Our friend Hayes on the four-wheeler.  He wanted to drive all day!

The line to climb the ice shove.

Look at the determination to make it to the top.

A victorious smile!

Now to enjoy a little down time.....

We were all cold and tired when we left.  When we arrived home, we all enjoyed a cup of hot chocolate together and re-lived some of our most exciting moments of the day.  All the boys enjoyed the snowball fights and riding the four-wheeler, M enjoyed eating snow and I enjoyed the nice warm fire!
