Ode to the Polar Bear

A couple of months ago, we decided to go sledding in the Great White North (uh, I mean the town park).

We were having a splendid time, even though it was pretty durn cold.

Daddy was practicing his special patented tongue-out-shove-the-child-down-the-icy-slope technique.

And enjoying himself quite a bit...

When along came a POLAR BEAR!!!

We knew not whence he came, but apparently he was hungry...


Where IS that Daddy when you need him?

(And, of course, Mom can't help because she's too busy documenting the attack for the authorities.)

We sure will miss that Luke, he's been a much beloved member of the family.

Oh, wait a minute....

It turns out the polar bear wasn't hungry after all....

He was just lonely.
