What do you do when it won’t snow? Go carpet skiing!

Aaron has been bemoaning the fact that we have no snow in Virginia right now. It is pretty sad actually. Even more sad for my poor husband because he LOVES to ski. 
And he has turned our boys into ski lovers as well. 
So what do you do when you LOVE TO SKI and have no snow? 
Carpet skiing (and sledding!), of course!
(It was dark when they started so these pictures are not the best)
Here are the boys, saucer-riding down our “slope,” constructed by Aaron off our picnic table. The carpet was a craigslist find. 
Happy husband! The “ski run” is short, but better than nothing, right? 
Whee!! Action shot!
The boys actually skied down it too but I didn’t get any pictures of that (Aaron held on to them from the back). They have the cutest little baby skis ever! And a helmet that they LOVE to wear! 
So, when winter refuses to send you snow, go carpet skiing instead! 
PS. It rained lightly the next day and made the “run” even faster!

  1. This reminds me of the sand skiing that we did as kids. And I use the term “kids” loosely. Teenagers is more appropriate. We hooked up a ski rope to the golf cart and took the fin things off some water skis. Instant fun for us backwoods bumpkins!
