The thing I have/am learning about teenagers is that the more dangerous the activity the more fun they have. So on Thanksgiving Day my kids had a LOT of fun. They used the bungee cord and a sled to go sledding without the hill and hike. In short the bungee cord tied to a fence and then pulled tight with a sled at the end. Let go of the bungee and get the RIDE of your life. I admit it could be safer if there were soft snow but alas...here the snow is sufficient to slide on. NOT land on. The trick is to stay on the board until it stops...DO NOT bail or you end up with a plate sized, purple bruise on your buttocks.

SWEETHEART and SUGAR on two sleds
SUNSHINE on the sled
SUPERSTAR attempting to stand up
No, I am not going to share the buttocks picture.
