Toblogganing December 23, 2007

Posted by davegoblog in Cleveland, Family, Parenting.


On Friday night, Rosie, Anna, and I went tobogganing at The Chalet located in the Cleveland Metroparks. Lily stayed with Grammy and Grampy while we hauled heavy wooden toboggans up what seemed like the stairs of an ancient Mayan temple. Then, we experienced three thrilling rides down the 1000-foot long ice chutes. I prefer spinning rides not ones that drop like that, but I finally rode in the front of the toboggan for the third trip. That was actually not too bad for my fluttery stomach, however riding in the back allows you to lie almost horizontal in a supine position for a unique luge-like journey. We all had a great time and hope to make it back at least one more time this winter. Click here for more pictures on our Flickr page, or watch the below video from the Cleveland Metroparks.

Fun stuff, I didn’t know Cleveland had that. I only knew of the Dinosaur Museum (2nd or 3rd cousin works there), The Rainforest, and Zoo. Of all of those, I LOVE the Rainforest the most. One day I’ll have to go back that way in the winter and go tabogganing. πŸ™‚

Hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! πŸ™‚
