Scootering Along

We have friends staying with us this week.
They are a young couple from the UK.
They first came to stay with us July/August 2006.
So they are finding it quite different to their first visit,
when it was sunny and hot all the time.
Now there is snow all around and it is quite cold at times (-10 degrees centigrade).
Yesterday we took some snow scooters out.
It was great because a couple of our Swedish friends joined us and took us on some forest trails as well as over some of the lakes.
One of the group managed to tip their snowscooter over spilling both her and her husband!
Mike was not very pleased!
But fortunately Mike and I were not injured.

Our greyhounds seem to be enjoying the company,
just a bit...

Glad no one was hurt! Hope you have a great visit with your friends, Lynn!

Have a wonderful weekend...

Sandi said...

What a hoot! Sounds like fun (except for tipping over).
Rufus does look rather pleased :)

I'm glad no one was hurt in the scooter spill.

It is so nice that you are having a visit with friends. I have never been on a snow scooter but I bet it is fun....unless you overturn like your friend did. I'm glad that no one was hurt.

I have just returned from our trip to Utah and Idaho. It was so wonderful meeting my blog friend Marie and attending the World Winter Special Olypic games with her.

I've enjoyed catching up on my blog reading since we got home. I think your blue and yellow hearts are darling and tell Mike I would love some of the treats he made.

I hope you have a great week ahead.

upps... I meant to say Olympics... but I bet you knew that.

Yes, fortunately we weren't hurt. It was me driving the snowscooter at the time and Mike was the passenger. He was not impressed! It was a great day out though.
