So some of my pictures look a little extreme, maybe, but I was just having fun checking out all the editing tools. Anyways....a few weekends ago, we went tobogganing with some friends. The Cleveland Metroparks are amazing and offer tons of outdoor fun all year round. We decided that we want to have a good experience in the snow, so we all went tobogganing. It was soo much fun and we had just gotten quite a bit of snow, so it was BEAUTIFUL too! Here are just a few pictures from our day.

This is some of our friends at the end of the ride:
It's a lot steeper than I would have thought and you get a lot of speed coming down. The first time we went down I thought there was no way we were going to stop in time.

And just a few pics of us that one of our friends took:

We had a GREAT time! They even have a little "lodge" with a HUGE fireplace for you to come and warm up and get some extremely overpriced food! The only bad thing about going is that you have to carry your own toboggan up to the top...which still wasn't too bad for me cause I have Josh :)

Oh Sunshine, Blessed Sunshine

Yep, that's right! We saw some sun today here in Cleveland! This doesn't happen often and it seems like FOREVER since we last saw you! I was excited when I walked out of work and this lovely sight greeted me!

In fact, I was soo shocked and happy that I just HAD to call my mom and let her know the exciting news! My phone was dying, so it was a quick call. Anyways....My drive home from work takes about 30-35 minutes West depending on traffic. Today, I was COMPLETELY annoyed the whole way home. There was just waaay too much SLOW traffic. It ended up taking me a little over an hour to get home :( I was not happy at all. When I finally did get home, I sent a text to my coworkers/friends to let them know how long it took me to get home so I could get some sympathy. :) One lady texted me back asking "why did it take so long." I replied "I have no idea. I didn't see ANY accidents." And her reply was "It's the sun. Nobody know how to drive in it." I laughed so hard at that, but it's sooo true. I had to call my mom back and tell her too. Clevelanders know how to drive in the snow (for the most part), but they sure can't drive in the sun!
