summer fun

so… friday night a group of us met at freestone park for some good summer fun – ice blocking!  (also known as “arizona sledding”)  now, for those of you who have never heard of ice-blocking, it works a little something like this…

you take these:

place a towel on top, then sit on it and ride it all the way down a hill, like so:

(please note the expression of intense determination on andrew’s face)

there are many variations of positions.  you can go down linking arms:

you can go down on your stomach:

or you can go down toboggan style:

drew even thought about going down “skateboard style.”  yeah, that didn’t exactly work.

sometimes there were a few wipeouts…

and yes, your rear does get a little wet, despite the towels…

oh, but it’s loads of fun!!! 

we finished the evening off with a couple rounds at the batting cages, then getting the best shaved ice ever at Bahama Bucks, and several hysterical rounds of catch phrase at the shank’s house. 

fun times!!
