Opa Ben (grandpa in German) takes the granddaughters Rory and Izzy out through the woods to a pile of snow. Ice and snow bubble up out of the pink and purple snowsuits while Zander struggles to stand on the ice. Hands and knees seem to work better than feet for sliding. When they try out the sledding hill, the plastic sled splits into several pieces as Ben tries it out with Rory. Minnesota may be cold – about 20 degrees – but there are a lot of ways to have fun.
