More Winter Fun

The kids had so much fun sledding the first time that we took them again. Watch Buppa fall — twice. Then watch him try get his big, stiff body onto a little saucer at the end.

 

Below are some stills, the last three were extracted from the videos, just for something to do. They were from a compact, so they're not great, but I've never done it before, so I wanted to try.

As I said in the video, we were the only people there with an old-fashioned wooden toboggan. The toboggan, though old-fashioned in style, isn't that old. it was bought perhaps five years ago for the kids. They use the plastic saucers more than the toboggan, though JJ did take a couple of turns with it, trying unsuccessfully to stand.

Even more jealous than usual. It looks so much fun and even if there were snow and I would be able to go out, I wouldn't be able to go out at all! Enjoy the good fun while it lasts!!

Looks like my kind of hill for sledding, not too steep for climbing back up to the top. ;)

Buppa's try on the saucer had me ending up almost in the same position by my desk.

That last shot seems to sum up the fun time had by you and the grands. Enjoyed the fun video.

Thanks for the stills, AC. As I've mentioned my computer is so old I can't get the videos ... or I should say I get them if I'm willing to wait for an hour !!
