WASHINGTON, D.C. - Kids in Washington, D.C. are breaking the government's rules, and they're doing it with the help of their parents. Adults and kids of all ages are taking Capitol Hill by 'snow storm,' protesting a sledding ban on the lawn.

The age-old rule dates back to 1876 prohibiting any portion of the capitol grounds from being used as a "playground." Nevertheless, throwing caution to the wind, dozens played, rolled, and slid all over place in the snow that covered the property.

"Some people wanted to stay inside, let them stay inside, let us come outside and have some fun. It's just about the snow and the kids, it's not even about me it's just about sledding," one protester said.

One guy said a groundskeeper told them they weren't supposed to be sledding, but that worker stayed inside his warm vehicle and didn't bother to do anything.

Nobody had a meltdown, this time. So, the fun prevailed.
