Our New Sled - A Very Manly DIY

I would like to think that most of the projects I put on here are pretty projects, you know, easy on the eyes. Well, this isn't one of those. It is still awesome and completely functional, but not going to win any beauty awards. We spent a few hours over the weekend working on a sled to pull Audrey in the snow.

My parents gave us an old pair of cross country skis and we mounted a big tub onto them for Audrey to sit in. Audrey appointed herself project supervisor and double checked most of her dad's work.
Oh my goodness, this picture makes me realize how desperately we need to clean our garage.
The sled turned out great. It will be so nice to be able to pull Audrey behind us while snowshoeing this winter. We took advantage of the wet grass after a really rainy day and gave it a test run. Audrey seemed to enjoy it.
