Hard Core Tobogganing

Yesterday afternoon we decided to take advantage of the nice weather and go tobogganing with the Russells.

Here's a video of me going down the hill
What a cutie!
Here's a video of Daddy and Zachy going down the hill together

And then the day went...downhill...sorry, couldn't help it.  Zach went down the hill with the jumps.  He went on his knees and I didn't stop him and, well, this is what happened...

Here's a video of Zach doing his face plant right into the jump.  

He got hurt pretty bad. Black eye, bit his tongue and  has a big cut on his bottom lip.

Poor old stick
Putting ice on his wounds.  His Mum took very good care of him!
He looks so out of it here.  Icing his wounds. 

I am pleased to say he is good to go.  Kids are tough!  He has a sweet shiner but he is back to normal running all over the house playing.

New Years Eve

On New Years Eve it was VERY cold here (-25 C).  We changed our plans and decided not to go to the outdoor carnival in Sherwood Park to hanging with friends at Steve and Sue's place.

 Josh & Luke Anthony playing with Zachy.  Zach just loves playing with his buds!
 Auntie Chrissy snuggling with Sydney

 More snuggles

We decided to bundle up and go check out the fireworks. It was awesome.  Kids got to sit in the box of Uncle Steve's truck and drink hot chocolate while they watched!

 Best buds!
