At Home

That's where we're at. Mom is away for the weekend, so three guys are holding it down. It's been so damn cold lately, hard to get out and do anything - with or without kids. Fishing, sledding, anything. Tough.

During naps, tied up a few of these CDC caddis. Some with the antennae Hughes includes in his Essential Trout Flies book, and some without. This is a #20. I'm anxious to see how the CDC wing compares to the elk hair wing. Some talk on the local board had some good praise for CDC caddis patterns. Got-damn, do I have a fishing jones right now. Been since early November.

We did try sledding. We walked across the street to the park. It has some good slopes. I thought this was going to be a huge hit... and it was - for about 15 minutes. All smiles for the first couple runs. Then each kid got major snow on face, and the chorus started. I dragged two sleds uphill toward home, with a constant almost-harmonious duet of "yell-crying" behind me. Pretty much a failed outing. I guess those happen.

We used the Gorilla Pod to get this vid, and then captured a still image.

I know the feeling. Cold winter. Cooped up. Hard to take kids out.
Mitch and the boys got the spear house out the last day of Christmas vacation and that has provide some escape for them. Eric speared his first fish. That makes two. Mitch is waiting to accumulate enough to try out his new Christmas smoker.
Looks like an impressive sled run you've got there. I imagine your area offers some pretty good terrain for such.
We just went sledding ourselves, over the weekend, over in the greater Goodland area. Cool place back in my sister & brother-in-law's hundred acre wood. Pretty action packed. Felt good for us to get out - nice little sunny break in the teens possibly. Now more cold.
Look forward to hearing what kind of time mom had while you guys were whooping it up. :)
Mitch will be in those shoes in a few weeks. An all-new, never-before tried thing at our house other than nights I've stayed at the hospital with new babies.
Sure am due to do some blogging. Must be channeling my urge to do so here in this comment! sorry.

Congrats to Eric on the fish. Wish I could spear around here.

The sledding options are quite good. The pics in this post are ~1 good baseball throw from the end of our block. We've got a more traditional "park" too, that features some gentler slopes (should have gone with that it seems).

Funny you'd say the guys were whooping it up while mom was on her own... Ha! The feeling was that it was kind of the reverse.

I'll say this: it's a heck of a lot easier to be "at home alone with the kids" when you can take them outside. Winter... Old Man Winter you sukka dude.

I was being witty, and understand that reverse feeling very much. :)

School canceled due to dangerous windchill temps today. So instead of being in a heated classroon, Mason & Eric hit the unheated spear house with dad.
