It's time for the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, and although I am British and thus bitter that we never win anything (apart from the really fancy sports, like rowing or cycling, that require very expensive equipment to compete in, thus ruling out a lot of countries), I understand America gets itself pretty hyped for this sort of thing.
And so it was that the hype train found its way to Klyde Warren Park, boasting various winter-based activities such as sledging, hockey, curling, you know, the snow and ice-based stuff. But lo! What is this, disembarking from said train of hype? Why, it's adorable children in big winter coats looking at turns terrified and delighted!
