Fun in the Snow

So, two things we did that I never posted about (because they weren't that great), first, we sort of kind of have a tradition of going to Utah Lake when it's frozen over and walking on the ice. Really, we just went last year because we were driving around bored one Saturday and we thought it was really cool to walk out on the ice but we didn't have a camera so this year we went with our camera and then it wasn't that cool. But here are some pictures of us anyway. Check out how bad we were squinting, it was so bright! It's cool to be out on the lake but a little scary at the same time. I only dare to stay close to the dock. :) Does anyone remember the days when they had an ice skating rink out on Utah Lake?

Okay and the second thing involves the snow and our car. We all know we got quite a bit of snow this year and you know how there is always a lot of snow on the side of the road? Well most people just avoid it, especially if they're driving a regular old sedan, not an SUV. Not Brandon. He always wants to drive over on the side, no matter how much snow is there. So we went to my brother Mark's house to drop off a baby gift and right where we usually park out in front of their house by the sidewalk, there was a pretty big pile of snow. So we flip around and start heading towards it and Brandon thought it would be fun to drive up over it. I, on the other hand, have been high-centered before and pretty much knew that's what would happen if he were to try to drive over it. So as he's heading straight for it, I say "Brandon, don't." Well me saying that didn't get him to stop but it did get him to slow down. So we approached the big pile of snow and drove right up on top of it...and got high-centered. Mark had to help push us out when we left. It made for some good laughs.

HAHA...yeah being high centered is so NOT cool! Boys are funny though...Trent is the same way. He has to hit every puddle and drive over every snow drift which freaks me out!

scary! I am glad it didn't do any damage to your undercarriage.
