Finn Says: "Sledding Sucks!"

It has been snowing like crazy here lately...and Aaron and I just got a sled for Christmas from my parents...so we decided to try it out! We were so excited to take Finn sledding for the first time. I pictured him laughing and smiling on my lap as we glided through a picturesque winter wonderland...this is what we got instead:I think he MAY have liked it if it wasn't snowing so hard. The snow kept blowing in his face and he HATED it. I think he was a little scared/confused by the all-white atmosphere.
Our attempt at a cute family shot...he wasn't even going to look at the camera he was so mad:The happiest he was the entire time:

Here is a video in the peak of sadness...oh man he was miserable. Even Aaron's attempts to cheer him up were fruitless...he was pretty mad at us I think.

And here is a quick video of the only time he went down the hill with me without crying: video

We ended up staying for about a half hour. He semi-liked watching me go down by myself, and didn't mind going down with me, but he was definitely not enjoying himself. He let us pull him on the sled back to the car...but did not get happy again until he was out of all his snow gear in the warm house. We're going to try again when it's sunny and clear out...hopefully he'll man up to the challenge.

Those pictures are hilarious, especially the first one of him with that sad look on his face. Too cute!

Finn has THE cutest sad face! When you guys were here and he was feeling overwhelmed by the boys, I had no idea until I looked up and saw that ADORABLE sad face! I'm sure he'll have much more fun without the white stuff in his eyeball. Let's go sledding with the fam this week--so much snow--hurray!

Oh man HE may not have had fun...but it looks like you should have gotten a sitter because you guys looked giddy out there!

those are sad pictures. that is how my boys are when we go swimming. i feel bad because i tend to laugh instead of feel bad for them. they are so cute though, even when they are miserable. hehe. way to break him in. p.s. it was so good to see you last week!

He may have been sad, but those pics are PRICELESS! I am so jealous. I wish so bad we could take our little guy sledding. Better yet, I wish we could take them sledding together! You guys are so cute!

He really is so cute! Glad to see that despite Finn not having a blast, it looks like you and Aaron did! :-) I hope you had a great Christmas!

I just saw your link on Soren and Kilee's blog. I can't believe how big Finn is. He is so cute! I am adding your blog to my list :)

Obviously Finn does not like sledding as much as his mother did! Take heart though - he will probably like it better next year!
