the dragonfly said...

Oh my!!

I would have had no hesitation as a child...but now those pictures bring me near to a heart attack.

*sigh*

She She said...

Aaaaaaaaaaaah! What fun!

LoriD said...

Is that daddy helping them? How much trouble was he in?

Hee. That's an awesome snowpile, boys antics notwithstanding.

ALM said...

Oh my! It looks like fun, but sometimes maybe it's better just not to know...

Stomper Girl said...

When they do it, it looks fun. I've officially got to the age where I'd be too scared. The age of reason, I think it's called.

picturing of life said...

Juliana RW said...

Cyn said...

My first thought was to leave a comment that said:

Oh, my!

But I see that several of your other readers had the same thought ;) Oh my!!!!!!!

ewe are here said...

Oh.no.

(But looks like so much fun! Can I have a go?)

Oh.no.

;-)

Maddy said...

Wow that looks like so much fun, I'd be right there with them......actually I wouldn't because snow = cold last time I checked.

Cheers

Here the site address

Also although your comments have family adventure highlighted, it doesn't actually link to your email [just in case you didn't know that]

That looks like something my husband would have the girls do when I wasn't looking - like teaching our 7-year-old how to jump off the roof of the boathouse up at the lake. Gives me gray hair just to think about it.

Kellan said...

Like I've said before - my Little Billy would LOVE handing with your boys - LOVE IT! Cute pictures - Have a good day - Kellan

Dawn said...

That looks like so much fun! I don't think I've ever seen that much snow in person.

Beth said...

Did you have your video camera handy? This looks like some America's Funniest Home Video scenes were about to happen!

Amy Y said...

Oh I think I would have had a heart attack!

Candy said...

Hold on, I'm going to have to get my heart out of my throat before I comment further.

Rima said...

Oh, sheet!

(But it does look like fun!)

Kyla said...

That looks like SUCH fun!

Mrs. Annie said...

Ah memories! These are some good one! LOL! What fun!

katydidnot said...

i did that once, and got stuck in the snow up to my chest, it was not a good situation. but it fun until that happened.

Amy said...

i think my boys would have a blast with yours. that looks like so much fun!

mommybytes.com said...

OMG, I need to hide these pictures from my son quick!! Awesome shots BTW.

Don Mills Diva said...

Looks like they're having a blast - I'd be tempted to join them!

Kathryn said...

Those are fabulous pics! We used to do that off the second story porch at my house growing up. So fun!
Of course if I had to watch my boys do it I would be peeing my pants the whole time.

jayedee said...

boys are so much fun! they keep you young! (as long as you can keep ahead of the grey hairs lol) these are priceless pictures! happy ww!

Robyn said...

that looks like so much fun. I want a turn to jump into the snow too.

My Ice Cream Diary said...

Oh how I miss the big snows we would get when I was a kid. Let them play (as I know you do), memories like that are worth a broken bone or two =)

Mary Beth said...

If that is possible, there is just WAY too much snow on the ground:)

What kind of reaction did they have when they caught you taking their pictures? Oh Sheet?

Christie said...

Only boys would do that. You know that girls would be inside the house quietly playing Barbie. Great pics!

Sandy said...

Oh my, too much fun.
That looks like something our boys would do - into our pool! LOL

Teachin' this mommy new tricks! said...

Ha ha. My dad use to do that with us too! We would shuvle off the roof and then sledd off or jump off. I'm sure my mom would have been ticked, but we did enjoy our selves :)

YIKES!

gmcountrymama said...

That does look just a wee bit dangerous! And fun though.

Jennifer (Jen on the Edge) said...

That looks like so much fun!

I'm so not showing my children these photos, lest they get some ideas...

Lisa @ Take90West said...

NOOO WAYYY!
I have to show these to my kids!

kim-d said...

YEAH, BABY! At their age, I would have done the same thing--forget the Barbie's :)! I'm just surprised they haven't thought to build a sled/toboggan run off the roof! Hey, Heidi--should I suggest it to them??? HAHA!

crazy grandma judi said...

The last picture made my heart stick in my throat! Then, I remember what a tomboy I had been and the wild and dangerous things I had done. Tried to hide most of them from the gustapo. They would have died a million times over had they known.....
So, enjoy life to it's fullness and be safe about it too.

Lainey-Paney said...

OMG!

...that looks like so much fun!

dkuroiwa said...

Aaahhh..the adventures of having boys!! My whole theory, when people around me are gasping from seeing something my boys are doing..."sometimes, it's just better to NOT look"!!!
These pictures are priceless!! Looks like just too much fun!!!

TwoScoutMom said...

Oh my goodness! Looks fun though. And i'm sure MY Ben would do the same!

painted maypole said...

we did this in college from a second story window. my mother was horrified when she saw the pictures. looking back I understand why, but at the time I kept insisting "We made sure there was a soft pile of snow underneath!"

jennwa said...

Even though I am a mom through and through, that looks like fun. I would have to try that too.

Victoria said...

Ooo! Love it! We used to do that in college.

Much too old now. =)

Beck said...

Ha! That last picture!

Queeny said...

Cowabunga, dude!

MamaGeek said...

That looks like some serious fun though! Man I love your adventures!

Steph said...

Oh my! These boys are building lots of lifelong memories on your adventures this year...

Chantal said...

Just caught up on all your posts since sunday. What a wonderful holiday you had. Looking at those photos of the boys I am feel a mix of fear and excitement. That looks like fun!

Mogul said...

Cheri said...

Fan-flippin-tastic.

brneyedgal967 said...

A built in slide and landing pad!! Bonus! What fun! I want to try! I want to try!

Kellan said...

Hi Heidi - nice to see you this morning - as always. I hope you have a good day - I'll see you later. Kellan

Aliki2006 said...

Okay, that looks like it was The Most Fun Ever!!!!

Rose Daughter said...

looks like they had fun, I hope my kids never get that idea.

shay said...

How fun is that?! Luckily we don't get enough snow for my kids to do that!!!!

Cool!

familymclean said...

Oh wow! What fun!
Don't tell me you didn't join in;)

Gina said...

That makes me laugh and want to cover my eyes at the same time!

Mighty Morphin' Mama said...

That looks like a ton of fun! Brings back childhood memories. When I was a kid, the snow bank came almost to the eave of our garage/shed. We loved sliding down that roof.

BeachMama said...

That looks like so much fun. I think my Hubby, A & J would all love to be jumping off that roof with your kids. They were jumping off the play structure last week!

Karen MEG said...

Boys. Just boys :)

Cathy said...

Love, love these!

Nadine said...

BOYS! LOL!

I am GREEN with envy! Awesome pictures. You're in a beautiful part of the world.

theotherbear said...

Sure it looks dangerous. But gee it looks like fun!

realworldmartha said...

I have two boys as well (11 and 7) that is something they would do (if we lived in snow...well I guess even when don't they still do).
