I Will Sled, Even When I can't Buy One Anywhere in Fort Collins // Colorado Family Photographer

After the snowpocalypse this year, we have been left with a ton of leftover snow that just doesn't seem to melt. It's like Colorado is hanging onto every last ounce of moisture it can get it's hands on. In the meantime, the residents are suffering with snow and ice that won't leave their streets or back decks. At least we are :). To make the best out of this snow that won't leave, I figured we would go on a little sledding adventure as a family. Keep in mind Eleanor is only 17 months, so nothing too intense here. I was SO excited, until I searched 5 different stores in Fort Collins and for the life of me could not find a sled. Seriously though, this is freaking Colorado. How do you sell out of sleds?! Especially after we have had snow for weeks! We are failing as a town and state. 

To make the dreary situation better, we made our own sled. It's a little hillbilly, but totally functional for our baby girl! The side walls kept her in, she didn't go too fast and it was easy to pull. For all you DIY people out there, DIY sleds are what the cool crowds are making these days. It even lasted the whole ride! Enjoy our silly family outing, and excuse our bad sense of style. I guess this is just who we are :).
