Here are some more snow-play photos from the other day's Fun Day of Snow Play, Snowflake Photography, and Birds, as my brother Alan and his family are also visiting my folks here in Ohio.

Titi is Anthony's cousin, and first made an appearance on my blog at about the same time she made an appearance in life, and then here, here, here, and here (probably among others).

Here's an interactive sequence of Alan diving onto the sled. The dive wasn't as epic as some that came later (such as the one leading this post), but the sequence here is nice, I think, so I'm showing this one.

Sweep the mouse side to side over the photo to seen the sequence...

Animatable — slowly sweep mouse from side to side to view sequence

For some reason, that blue sled didn't quite make it intact to the end of the day.

A big pile of gravel covered with snow looked to be a fun start to launch the sled...

But then he didn't balance his weight appropriately, and unintentionally started sledding backwards...

Having more coordination, balance, and sense than her dad, Titi had no such troubles...

But after watching her dad try to sled forward (again), but fail (again) and slide backwards (again), Titi thought it looked fun and wanted to try going backwards on purpose...

All and all, everyone had a great time playing in the snow.
