But for other reasons it was great.
My twin brother and I loved sledding, and later snowboarding down our hill in our front yard. I even remember one summer we got rid of our basketball hoop but saved the long pole and converted it into a snowboard rail. Good times.
We recently had a family dinner. This winter has provided a lot of snow. It was great to have everyone there. We sent all the kids outside. It was a lot of fun for everyone.
