Flying Fun

My parents gave Lillie and Lydia some Flying Turtles (Ride-On Scooters) for Christmas.  They have had miles of fun with these little riding toys.  (If their parents are completely honest, they will admit that they have tried them out, too.)
If you can get your hands and feet positioned just right...

...and wiggle back and forth with determination...

...and hold your tongue just right...

...you can even make it go uphill!

They will ride down a typical sidewalk...

...with some dedicated steering...

...at a fast and surprisingly fun pace.

Even the uncertain...

...will sometimes take risks...

...and learn the thrill of a speedy coast.

They are even fun for racing the dog...

...together or alone...

...sometimes you win.

Even with a crash, you are so low to the ground...

...that it rarely hurts.  So, you just hop up and start all over again!

There's also tandem coasting...

...when you can roll while meditating...

...or just acting silly...

...or maybe...

...they were praying to avoid a crash!

At any rate, on a warm winter day...

...it looks like lots of fun!
