Sledding sounds great on a 90+ day (June 27)

June 25, 2008

I admit to being a mom who lets her kids pelt their grandmother with water balloons and soak the unsuspecting neighbor with the garden hose while he’s out mowing his lawn. (Well, to be fair, the neighbor was only unsuspecting once! Now he mows with his eyes scanning the fence next door.) I even let M.’s playmate from down the block douse her mom with a SuperSoaker. M’s SuperSoaker, borrowed just for the occasion. Something about 90-plus readings on the thermometer makes me a little crazy.

I’m totally envious of kids 8 to 18 this week, because they’re invited out to the Ice Grass Sledding event at Sioux Passage Park in Florissant on Friday (June 27) from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. That sounds crazy enough for me — and, naturally, I missed the session only for adults last week! But for this tween/teen session, for an $8 fee, pre-registered participants can “hop on a large block of ice and zoom down a giant hill.” (The adjectives are theirs — I’m curious how large and how giant … .) There will also be cold snacks and beverages for everyone.

I’m definitely there for the open-to-everyone session on August 23 from 1 to 3 p.m. ($7 per person). Sign me up, baby! The numbers are 314.355.7374 or 636.391.0922.
