Our family went sledding last week, on a sunny afternoon. It was beautiful and the snow conditions were perfect! We brought our new vintage flexible flyer (a hand-me-down from our neighbor) and our faithful toboggan (lucky find in the attic of our house!). Little did we know that the flexible flyer works best on already-packed snow. The snow we were sledding on was fresh and powdery. So when Nick took Nathaniel on the flexible flyer, this is what happened: over the first steep slope then face-plant into the snow. The flexible flyer had dug into the powdery snow and catapulted Nathaniel forward into the unforgiving snow! It was a sad site to see, but Nathaniel was ok. He complained a little bit, but then wanted to go sledding again.
Ethan loves sledding, contrary to what this picture conveys. He was upset because his hands were getting cold.
