My trip to Mountain High

Photo taken by Echo (Heather's mom)

When we went to Mountain High, we first went sledding. When we went sledding, there was a very steep side of the mountain where you can sled. I was getting hot on the mountains where there was snow (because I was running around, climbing steep sides while my brother was throwing snowballs). I decided to take my puffy pink jacket off. 

After a few minutes, my long-sleeved shirt was soaked. The good thing is that I had a overall pants and snow shoes for warmth. The negative thing is that we had to go to our hotel because it was getting late.

In this photo, my brother and I were snowboarding. We started to snowboard last year. My dad never took snowboard lessons, so he just skied. My mom is not in the picture because she was taking the picture. If you look carefully, you will see some snow powder. Guess what! It was snowing! I was so excited because this was the first time seeing real snow fall.

In the background, there is the lift. The lift gives you a ride all the way to the top of the mountain. It is fun riding on it, but there is no seat belt.

Here, I am snowboarding (again). Since I snowboarded all the way down from the top of the hill, the snowboard picked up a lot of snow. 

In the background there is the lift again. It looks different because it is in another position. 

Have you ever gone snowboarding?

Did you ever see snow falling?

Where did you go over winter break?

Merry Christmas

Photo by Echo

Guess what my Christmas present is? Here are some hints: It is big, long, and bouncy. This is a very helpful hint. READ ALL THE WORDS!

 TA DA! A pogo! What did you think it was? My brother, Aaron, took this photo of me bouncing in mid air. What an action shot! Do you know how to start on a pogo stick? If you read the words, you will know how, but first give a guess. How do you do it? Well, here is how you do it:

 How you use a pogo stick

 First, you try to balance on the the thing you stand on. It might be hard at the beginning, but you will get better.

Second, when you get better, you try to bounce. Be sure to wear a HELMET!

Third, when you almost mastered bouncing, try to beat your high score. Do it like your are trying to beat your high score on a game.

Last, have fun!

 Do you celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah?

What did you get for Christmas or Hanukkah?
