Revisiting the scene of childhood fun.

Many of us do indeed have Cabin Fever, which, for those who don't live in four season climates, or simply don't have cold weather, is that time when you are soooo fed up with sitting in the house and watching the snow pile up. You feel like busting out.
And our prompt invites us to do just that.

|Maybe brother and sister.|
|Orange County New York Thomas Bull Park.|
|Friday evening tubing.|
|Down the hill.|
