Snowmobiling in April?!?!

Yeah, I wouldn't have guessed it either! BUT... these are the Canadian Prairies... and it seems that the snow just won't leave us alone!

My folks made EXCELLENT time in driving to our place and arrived earlier on Saturday than we expected them to! That meant that, for the FIRST time in all their Canadian travels, they could experience the thrill of  snowmobiling with their son! Of course the girls weren't going to watch from the sidelines for long... and were out there quick as a wink!

You can tell, on her face, that she wants SO BADLY to figure out how to run that big ole' thing eh?! The day will come soon enough... I have no doubts! 

Riding with Grampa for the first time!

Off to show Grampa the infamous "snow mountains," that have come to be one of Alia's favorite winter spots!

Have I mentioned that I REALLY like living in the community we do? People don't bat an eye at snowmobiles driving through the middle of the "village"... it's just normal everyday stuff! And again... for that alone, we can not possibly move to town! Now if only we could find a bigger home right here in our little collection of houses.... easier said than done, I tell ya!! People just don't move away, so turn over is LOW, to say the least!

We were so thrilled that my parents got to enjoy the snow a bit! We even went for a "triple rider" and piled ALL OF US on the sleds to go goof around at the snow mountains. They were getting smaller and smaller by the minute, but at least we were able show Mom and Dad a little of what gets us through the long winters up here!!
