Giant Snow Balls

The two oldest boys and I decided to climb to the top of the hill behind our house, start making some giant snow balls and let them roll down the hill destroying everything in their path. We're looking for a contractor to help rebuild the east side of our home....just kidding. We did make some big snow balls but in the end they either split in two or got so big I couldn't keep them moving. Well try again, maybe on the otherside of the hill where it's more steep. Here are some pictures Nicole took from the living room of us working.

At the very top planning our strategy.

My first attempt split in two. You can see it here below my feet. It doesn't look big because of the distance but you can see the size of these things in the next picture and the video at the end.

This was attempt number two. It just stopped going. Click on the picture to get a better idea of the size.

The boys next to the first one that split. We ended up rolling another in between the two pieces and made a slide out of the whole thing.
This video shows me rolling the first snow ball down the hill. You can barely see my head as I work to keep it rolling. It started to take off and then just split in two. That is why you see me throwing my hands up.
