Remember our wonderous trip to Lillehammer last weekend? Crazily enough the Olympic park is situated at the top of a mountain....even funnier is that our hotel was situated halfway up that mountain. Sam and I did not agree on the amount of energy he had to arrive at either location. This is the same kid that smoked us climbing the 4.8 million stairs in Alesund. There was a point where he had tried every 4 year old trick in the book. "Mine leg is broken." "I need my energy to come back." I tried the old threat that we were gonna leave him there....you veteran parents know how that turned out. He was fine with that and sat down in the snow. We eventually made it up the mountain and miraculously Sam regained his lost energy enough to go sledding for 2+ hours.
Here are a couple of pictures from next to the hotel. They had loaner sleds and skates that you could use on the large hill nearby also. This one only had ONE tool to get sleds to the top. Daddy.
One staged photo for fun...the other is Sam as a speck to show how far up the hill I had to drag the sled.
