Syrian Refugees Tobogganing For The First Time Is Pure Joy

"The kids are amazingly grateful and excited about everything."

Welcome to Canada, eh.

A family of Syrians refugees who fled the civil war in their country took their first toboggan rides this month, and the fun was caught on camera.

A YouTube video uploaded Tuesday shows nothing but joy as the group flies down Armour Hill in Peterborough, Ont.

Ontario Provincial Police Const. David McNab, who shot the video, is co-sponsoring the family of four with his wife Kristy Hiltz, according to The National Post.

"The kids are amazingly grateful and excited about everything," the police officer told the newspaper.

"Every experience is just laughter, smiles and giggles."
