It was almost a very short lived sledding trip. On the first run down the hill in the saucer Alonzo managed to crash into a small tree (really large shrub) and bang his head.
See the bright yellow coat in the center of the picture? That's Alonzo, he is headed straight for that patch of trees right at the bottom of the hill. He never even slowed down before he hit. It was a very scary moment.
Dad to the rescue!David had been waiting to take Grayson downhill on the wooden sled but instead he handed Grayson to me and headed down alone to make sure Alonzo was OK.
By the time David got down there Alonzo had climbed out of the bushes and walked over to where David slid to a stop. He had a bump on the head, but was otherwise fine. Good thing he has a hard head, takes after his daddy he does!
David gave him a ride back to the top of the hill. Isn't he a nice guy? He would have had to walk if it had been Mom to the rescue. I could barely pull Grayson up the hill much less Alonzo.
The rest of the time passed (mostly) uneventfully, well there was the time Cody (also on the saucer) plowed through three boys like a bowling ball. It was a strike, he knocked all three down but all were unhurt and went on sledding. Alonzo was back on the sled and flying downhill in less than five minutes. What a fun afternoon. I can't wait to go again.
