A Full, Fun Day: Part II

My sister, Joanna, and her friend Amber came out after lunch. We went to “Suicide Hill”.

This shot is supposed to give you a bit better perspective on why it is called Suicide Hill.

The crazy girls went to the very top and this is what happened:

There are more in this series and if you are interested in seeing all (the very, very many) of them, you can check out my Flickr page. (See link on right sidebar.)

Now Amber decided to take the jump.

….. and the result.

La-dee-da….. this is fun.

Then the speed picks up and it’s terrifying and out comes the tongue! What is that? Good thing they didn’t hit any big bumps!

Terrified.

Ultra, tongue-hanging-out, terrified.

Oooo…. good thing he pulled it back in his mouth.

Gabe is flying off his crazy carpet here after doing a 360°.

Weeeeeeeee!

And yet another series of “this is fun” to “this is rather alarming”.

I saved my favourite series of action shots for last.

If you look closely, you can see she is still smiling!

And still smiling.

Ben and Noah fell asleep in the jogger and slept through most of the sliding outing.  That is why they aren’t in any pictures.  And that is why I was able to take SO many.

    Reading this and seeing the pictures brings me back to my toboganning days when I was a kid. I miss those times, looks like you guys had a terrific day in the snow.
    P.S. Troy was fooled by the pictures of Joanna, he thought it was you (I had to show him the ones of you to prove it!)

    By the way, the shot of Gabe with his tongue sticking out is priceless, how did you catch that on film? 🙂

    Joanna and I were just talking about how much people think we look alike. For a long time we didn’t see what they saw until one day we held out a digital camera and took a self portrait of the two of us. We looked at it and both went, “Oh my goodness! We look so much alike!” Even now we don’t see it, but we know that everyone else must see whatever we saw in that photo.

    The pic of Gabe (and most of the action shots) were captured using “continuous high speed” shutter. So I just held down the button and the shutter just kept going as along as I held it….. great for action stuff like this!
