Don't Go Fast!

A few weekends back we got several inches of snow. Ava and Larry decided to get all bundled up in warm clothes so that they could go outside to play in the snow.

They ventured off to build a snowman, but the snow would not pack. So they had to settle for a miniature snowman, which Ava promptly destroyed with her boots.

Having failed at making a snowman, Larry determined to show Ava some other ways to have fun in the snow. He grabbed a snow disc from the garage and tied some nylon string to it as Ava watched in anticipation.

Always the worry wart, Ava had to be coaxed into sitting on the disc. If Larry pulled her even the slightest bit fast she would exclaim "Don't go fast!".

Despite her apparent trepidation, she seemed to have fun all the same (although she appeared somewhat relieved when we told her it was time to go inside).

Haha that's funny. Too bad the little girlies couldn't go sledding together. One of these years, I guess.

Snow can be lots of fun. I love her snow gear. They make the cutest things for kids these days!--GrannyO
