Snowed in with the Tomlinson's

Last Saturday we decided to head out to the Tomlinson's since the roads were so clear...little did we know how bad it was in Powell. The roads were starting to get icy over there and we weren't able to make it up their driveway. We got about halfway up and that was as far as we could get. Aaron even tried to pull us up with the 4 wheeler but it just wasn't happening. Matt ended up reversing and getting stuck in the yard b/c you couldn't see the driveway. Aaron had to pull him out with the 4 wheeler. It proved to be an interesting start to our evening with them. We had taken our things to spend the night so we just settled in for a fun. We enjoyed soup, sledding and hot chocolate for 24 hrs! Aaron's sister and her kids got snowed in with us. They had come over earlier in the day and weren't able to leave b/c of the road conditions. It was lots of fun. The next morning we got everyone bundled up and headed out for more sledding. They have the best hill in their front yard. We got airborne a few times. Madison wasn't as thrilled with the sledding....a little too fast for her but she was happy to make snow angels and throw snowballs :) The kids enjoyed sledding down the hill and having Aaron pull them back up with the 4 wheeler. They also enjoyed riding the 4 wheeler around the yard in the snow.

Can you find their driveway? I will give you a hint..the start of it is where our car is at the bottom of the hill!

Notice the determination in Caleb's face....aka his tongue sticking out.
