We borrowed Allan's sparker this weekend -- sparker is the Norwegian word for "kicks". These are a type of snow scooter with long runners. There's a place for someone to sit in front as well. We took them out today but the snow was wrong. We need hard-packed snow or ice, and the snow is very fluffy.
So we pulled out the sleds instead and had a great afternoon sliding down the hills next to our apartment and building a snow fort. It reminds me of Michigan winters -- we just don't get this kind of snow in Washington and I'm glad the kids are having these snowy experiences.
Here's the best wipeout of the day: Peter lost his boots on this one!
