Slip-Slidin' Away

Jeff's mom and dad gave Adrian a sled for Christmas and we tried it out the other day. I don't think Adrian quite gets the concept of running up a hill and sledding down...he did it once with me and seemed to enjoy it but he wasn't interested in going back up again. (The 'hill' we used is pictured above to the right, way in front of the boys.) These two pictures (above and below) show the only time he really wanted to be in the sled. We had some rain a while ago and it's been really cold since so everything is really hard which makes it easier for him to walk around. That's a good thing considering he's still trying to figure out snow boots! It was sooo cold out there but Adrian didn't seem to mind a bit. We only stayed out for about half an hour before I decided we should head in because my face was hurting from the cold!

Adrian did pretty good walking around in his gear except for a few times like this:

And this:

And when he tried to step over this crack (don't worry it's completely frozen underneath!) that probably looked like a small canyon to him:

Maybe if I just step sideways...shoot I stepped short...

Oh man, now what...?

Hey, Mom! Put the camera away and come help me!

I didn't see very many smiles while we were out but that was probably thanks to the bright, bright sun. He really did have fun! I think he was a little upset when we had to go inside!

(In case you're wondering, this is at the lake across the street from our apartment. We'll see ice fishermen driving out with their trucks any day now...)

I love that photo sequence with the crack! He looks so cute all bundled up. I could just squeeze him.

It looks like the crack swallowed him up. It's so fun to take them out in snow for the first time :)
