Rachael, Abbey, Ruthie, Frankie, and I gathered in my kitchen in the early afternoon for a game plan. We decided that we would split into two teams. The first team was with Frankie and Rachael. The second team was Ruthie, Abbey, and me. We planned on having the snowball fight in an open, secluded area in my backyard.
We trudged down a hill to get to the area of the snowball fight. I fell over multiple times because the hill was very steep and slippery. The snowball fight started, and my team was winning. We were playing for over thirty minutes. I was hit multiple times.

Then I woke up. “Oh look, it’s snowing outside.” My mother and I made the trek towards the lake, all bundled up and ready to slide down a hill on a long piece of plastic with foam on top.
