Fun - Uncle Mo Style

I have a brother that has the art of FUN down to a daily must!!!
Where they live it snows alot and the snow plows are not as diligent about clearing the streets. Their lane turns into the best snowmobiling, sledding and 4-wheeler paradise. We visited recently and once dinner was eaten it was time to play and play hard. Mo hooked up the sled (I really think this was a dog-sled at one time) to his 4-wheeler and took the kids for the ride of their lives. In the neighbors yard the snow had been piled high and that was their first experience, flying over the hill on the sled.The kids were holding on for dear life and laughing and screaming the whole time.
More cousins get on and it is over the hill again, this time faster.
Of course I had to get on and enjoy the ride, I hung on for dear life as I am sure my brother was trying to throw me just like in our younger days. It was a riot. I had snot across my face and tears coming from my eyes, and my screams could be heard all the way to the state-line but it was the best fun.
Once the sled got boring all the kids loaded onto the 4-wheeler and hung on again for dear life as Uncle Mo spun doughnuts on the icy roads.
Everyone see what I want for Mother's Day, my Birthday and every other holiday between here and next Christmas? Yep, I gotta get me one of those 4-wheelers - now that is what I call fun!!!

Excuse me for a minute. Are those MOUNTAINS? You can see mountains from your house? Beautiful snow covered mountains? I don't think I have ever seen a mountain before. Keep in mind I have always lived in Indiana. A sand dune is the closest thing to a mountain I have ever seen. In awe over here...

Your kids have the BEST Uncles ever! I love it! If you were covered in snot and tears that's seriously the best fun ever. Serious Fun always includes snot and tears. ;)

Oh, yes, 4-wheelin' is the best! I used to babysit for a couple who lived on a couple of acres and owned one. We always had such a blast on that thing, no matter what the season!

Love the pics! And the description of the snot on your face :)
