Winter with my Dad

This weekend, we got 18 inches of snow in one snowfall. As Jordan went outside to play in the snow, I started thinking about the stuff my dad would do with us in the winter.

  • He took us sledding on the hill at Green Acres.
  • We went ice skating at random ponds and in Mr. Juopperi's backyard. One time while we were driving to a pond to go ice skating, he hit a jogger with his van. He only tapped him, but the man yelled at him in some foreign language.
  • We went to lots of Red Wings games!
  • One thing my dad did a lot with us was doughnuts. He'd throw the car in reverse and swirl us in circles ... in parking lots, on roads, and even on service drives next to major interstates. We'd be screaming at the top of our lungs, partly in terror and partly in delight.
