Tobogganing Oop

Not all snow is bad! Alex had fun yesterday, tobogganing down our driveway, into the front yard. [A short video of her joy, can be found in this post]

Alex tobagganing down our driveway

Shredding the Driveway (Sorta)

At least Alex found joy in all of the snow we were handed!

We inherited a lot of 'junk', when we bought the property: an oil drum filled with sludge, scrap lumber and wood, metal pieces, chains, etc. Most of it is scattered across the entire place and we've started cleaning it up, trying to return the forest to a more pristine state.

Not all the 'junk' we're finding is undesirable. One of the items we found was a plastic, steerable snow sled (I think they're called 'snow shuttle sleds', but I'm not sure. We also have a couple of plastic discs and a thin, plastic toboggan.

I bundled Alex up and let her try bombing down the slight incline into our front 'yard'. The thin plastic toboggan didn't go fast enough for the Oop, so I dusted off the snow shuttle and let her have a go at it. (I was afraid that she wouldn't understand the concept of 'steering' and end up in a pile somewhere).

I shouldn't be such an overprotective Dad, I guess, because not only did she get the whole steering concept, but she had a hoot bombing down the driveway. Her only complaint (besides stopping) was that she wanted to go 'faster'!

I took a short video of one of her first runs. Have a look at "Oop - Our Daredevil"!

Scott: We love the video of Alex on her toboggan. Sorry there will be no snow when we visit you next week!

Did you know we are coming. Probably Friday.

Glenn -

THAT's a completely different definition for "bombing". LOL. Hopefully, the Oop will be interested in other things and not advance to 'that level'.

Gran -

Glad you liked the video! The Oop, she's such a great kid! Everyone here is looking forward to your visit, especially Alex! We're counting the sleeps.
