Snow Sledding in Ron McLean Park

With work off at noon on Dec. 24, Yumi decided she wanted to try tobogganing in Ron McLean Park. The catch was we have no sled or toboggan, but we had a coated sheet of cardboard in the garage, and a piece of rope and a couple of holes later -- voila!

The snow was coming down hard, and it was already knee-deep in the park.

With my bad back, I took photos, and gave Yumi pushes to boost her speed... No bouncing around for me!

As people got home from work, more families joined in the fun.
