#21 and #16 COMPLETED on the Bucket List

We completed 2 more items on our 2011 Bucket List!!!! YAY for us! We are down to the wire on a few items...winter is almost over and we can't really go snowtubing or snowboarding once the snow is gone - SO WE GOTTA GET MOVING!!!

#16 = This was one of JJ's items that she wanted to do (an easy one to accomplish)! She wanted to go swimming. We love to swim - the kids go to swim lessons in the summer and my parents have a pond that we also swim in quite frequently. We recently had the chance to go and visit an "old" (and by old...I mean we went to high school together) friend in Lake Placid! We stayed at the LOVELY Comfort Inn Lake Placid! We had a pool-side room. It was great - there were sliding glass doors to go out to the indoor pool (and hot tub). After spending half the day and some of the night outside in the snow and cold it was nice to put on bath suits and swim and relax in the hot tub. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of this but you get the idea!!

#21 = Go Dog Sledding!! This was something that I have always wanted to do or see. Eian and I had watched an episode of Sarah Palins Alaska and she was dog sledding - he thought it was pretty cool and so did I! It was slightly expensive 9I thought) $8 per child and it was only about a 5 minute ride. But the kids all had smiles on their faces, so it was worth it! What made the experience even better is that it was SNOWING LIKE CRAZY - as you can see from the pictures below! The neat thing is, the dogs LOVE to do this! They get so excited when they know that they are going to be pulling!!!!

I wonder if my dogs would like to do that? I sure could use some help with them pulling stuff!
