Saturday I committed to take photos for a couple celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. Four other photographers either cancelled or were out of town. The poor lady was desperate. I agreed, especially after she said the family would be ready by 10 and photos done by 10:30. I arrived at 9:40 and was ready to go by 10 am. Nothing. Nothing happened until 11:30. I was peeved that the photos were not done until after 12:30. I did enjoy a quiet nap (or 6 naps) while I waited in the Catholic Church's chapel. I missed out playing basketball with the family and lunch at Subway. I took the older kids sledding while Justin and Evelyn napped. We had a blast. The jump was even better the second day! One time I caught a couple feet of air! Everett is a trooper, sliding and hiking up with singular ambition. We amused ourselves for hours with sled trains, spins, different positions, and borrowing other sledders sleds. I earned a huge bruise down my right leg! Amelia earned a nice ice scrape on her cheek when she and Everett crashed.
