Kids Will Be Kids

Last weekend we had the pleasure of spending lots of time over at my grandma and grandpas house in Bemidji.

My grandparents have this wonderful hill (awesome pics in that link) in their yard that I remember playing on as a wee little child.

I was wee once.

Anyway, my dad and cousin Scott and hubby were hanging out with the kids on the hill when they (yes, the adults) got the brillinat idea to send the kids down the hill in a mini car.

I was horrified and laughing nervously and kicking myself for not being the cool mom who can just go with the flow and lets the kids have fun when…

I saw dear hubby sending down my baby.

My baby I tell you!

I think it occurred to him that she might need help steering or stopping, so he had a brilliant idea.

Yeah.  She loved it.  

And I am pretty sure he did too. :)

    That looks like so much fun! However, I would be terrified to even attempt it, let alone send a child. :) I will forever be “worrier Mommy”. Good thing my husband would fly down with them though … that way they won’t be scarred for life with all my worry.

    This is absolutely priceless! I love the entire story in photos!
    And my jaw hit the floor when I saw “Bemidji”! I mean, who knows where that is?!?! Except my cousin just got married there to a girl who grew up there! :)

    Too funny – my husband would so do this too! Looks like an awesome sledding hill.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Blessings…

    Man they built that plastic car better then most real vehicles. LOL! I was expecting it to fall apart half way down the hill.
    Too fun!
    Have a great weekend girlie!

    this brings back some fun memories – when VC was two he would take his cozy coup and go to the top of our sloping driveway at our former house – and speed all the way down to end up beyond the end of the driveway into the cypress trees at the end. Then he would shout “again, again” as he would instruct us to push him back up the hill….
    Yeah, I was a really cautious parent ;-)
    Hope you are doing well :-)

    Love HER expression! Looks like she had a blast.
    I know what you mean, I’m the worry wart and my hubby is the wild one with the kids.
