I Survived

If you aren’t on my personal Instagram or Facebook pages, then you may be wondering whether or not I survived snow tubing. Since Hell doesn’t have the Internet yet and I’m not posting in ghost-mode, I survived!

We went with an indoor snow tubing place. You see, I didn’t realize that you had to take a chair lift or tram up the side of a mountain to get to the snow tubing place we originally wanted to go to. Just thinking about that makes my heart rate go up. I’m not even gonna doodle this, because I want your heart rate to go up, too, so here’s an image from TripAdvisor.

See? Holy cow! I’ll ride most roller coasters, but there is something about being suspended over the side of a mountain by a cable that makes me nope out completely.

So, indoor snow tubing place it was. Baby Girl wouldn’t get on the snow tube, but the rest of us had a good time with it. I was pretty darn terrified at times, because going fast down a hill, spinning, and worrying about tipping over and breaking my neck can do that, but I still enjoyed it.

I didn’t fall going up the escalator (yes, an escalator) to the top of the hill, I didn’t fall down the hill while trying to sit on the tube, and I didn’t break anything.

The only time I had a near-death experience was when I rode back from the snow tubing place with my mother-in-law. Let’s just say that taking mountain curves at 65 MPH is more terrifying than the thoughts of riding a tram up the side of a mountain.

Death flashed before my very eyes.

(And my mother-in-law is probably reading this now and thinking, “But did you die?” No, I didn’t, but, you know I can’t pass up a chance to tease you.)

It was a very fun short trip away! We took the kids to do the Polar Express train ride last night, and we all loved it. They came out dancing to the “Hot Chocolate” song just like in the movie. I was mildly disappointed they didn’t dance with the hot chocolate in their hands, though. (Yeah, I knew there was only a .00001% chance that would happen, but I held out hope.)

Now that we have that trip out of the way, we can focus on our Christmas Movie Marathon, baking, and crafty type things.

Instead of asking you a question to wrap up the post, I’m going to create a poll…

If y’all don’t hear anything from me after this post, it’s because she has killed me. #RIPDorkyMom

  1. I’ll take one of those cable cars to the top of a mountain, but I won’t go on a rollercoaster. We all be scared in different ways. As for an escalator, no problem. I’m glad you had fun snow tubing & Polar Expressing. “It’s the most wonderful time of the year.”

  2. Sassy hates escalators, always has. When she was little, she’d ask me, “Can we take the vator?” Even now on an escalator, she’ll want her parent/s behind her!
    I am so glad you made it down the hill AND the mountain!

  3. I almost died tubing once. We were in a giant tractor tire tube and my friends and I were going so fast that we didn’t stop at the bottom of the hill, but went flying over the embankment into the parking lot and landed on a pickup. We were okay, but it popped the tube. 😦

    1. OMG! That sounds terrifying!

      That reminds me of a time I truly almost died in a tube (nothing fun to doodle). We were watertubing down a river and I thought the water was so calm that I didn’t need my life jacket. I tied it off to the side of the tube but kept my arm slung through one of the jacket arm holes just in case, because I didn’t want to lose it and have to pay for it. Well, we hit some water that wasn’t calm at all and my tube flipped and I somehow got stuck underwater with my arm tangled up in the jacket attached to the tube. Legit thought I was gonna die!
