Wordful Wednesday... Tubing!

Angie over at SevEn cLoWn CirCus does 'Wordful Wednesday,' where you post a photo and tell about it...

This picture always totally cracks me up!

We were tubing at the ski resort near here a few years ago. Ryan was 6 and although she was small, she insisted on riding in a tube by herself. She might just have been too small, though, as all the bouncing down the mountain resulted in this... she was stuck but good! I nearly wet myself laughing and had to get a picture before I un-stuck her.

She starts ski lessons on the same mountain this Friday evening... hopefully she'll manage to stay vertical, eyes uncovered!

OMGosh, that is just too funny! What a great shot!

That's so funny!! Tell her good luck with the skiing thing. I tried once and never made it off the bunny slope!! It's hard work! I'd love to try again one day, but I doubt I'll ever get the hang of it. Grace and balance are two things I simply wasn't blessed with. :)

Love the nose... What a great shot. Sums up a wonderful day and puts a smile on my face.

Ryan is cute at least from what I can see of her!

Andy said...

Good thing you explained it, because at first I was thinking, "What is going on???" That's hilarious.

Sam_I_am said...

Oh my gosh, that is hysterical.

We went snowtubing and I went head first and got air over a bump, lost control and flew off my tube and rolled the rest of the way down the mountain. lol

Protege said...

That is hilarious! She is really gutsy, and has always been, right? As many children would have been crying for sure.;)) I bet she was just laughing.:))
I hope she will enjoy her ski lessons - but being fearless is a good start already.;)

Shanna said...

AWW cute shot ;)

Mel said...

HA! That's so funny. I choose to think that you laughing at and getting photos of her at times like these will give her a good sense of humor about herself and NOT scar her and send her to therapy for years.

Amy McMean a.k.a McSunshine said...

LOL. Great photo. I hope the sking goes a littel better for her, but don't forget to take a photo if it doesn't. :)

I hope you put that picture out every winter in prominence somewhere. Hey, it's seasonal.

blognut said...

I'm a bit off today - when I first looked at the picture, it looked like you had stuffed Ryan in the washing machine.

Wish her the best of luck at ski lessons!

SSP said...

what is funniest is that I can see you going, "oh wait, let me get my camera out and get this shot, hang on...oh damn, my batteries are cold, let me warm them up in my armpit, hang on honey, mama's coming...OK there ya go....hold on, damn what it wrong with this stupid zoom....no, you are out of focus....ahhh there ya go, perfect little button nose!"

Lee said...

I'm with SSP - I had visions of Ryan stuck in there for ages while you went to get the camera.

Michelle said...

She can start a new trend, inside tubing....

It's all the rage i hear!!!!

Ah, more ammunition for the embarrassing photo show at her 21st!

Stu Pidasso said...

oh to be a kid again....how do they chose video games over stuff like this??

creative kerfuffle said...

lol. i also thought she was stuck in a washing machine at first glance. what a moment! what a memory!

Jenners said...

That is just too funny! I love that you recognized the good moment and took the photo instead of helping her out of the tube right away!

Good luck with the ski lessons. That is great! I LOVE skiing -- it is the chairlifts I don't like. Way too scary!

blueviolet said...

I didn't realize at first there was a person in there! Oh my, that's hilarious!

Terri said...

OMG that poor child -- I hope you put a chunk of $$ into her therapy fund for that!

I just wanted to let you know that I am going on vacation and I'm highlighting your blog as a "fun thing to do while I'm gone." I always like to know when someone links to my blog so I wanted to let you know! (I know you'll probably read it anyway --- that is what I love about you -- but I wanted to let you know.)
