of living with a lake in your backyard during the months of January and February.
I was more than a bit nervous when the hubby decided he was going to make a rink on the pond this year. My fears held him at bay last year but not this time. As soon as it was cold enough, he was outdoors with the shovel and hose making a glossy rink to keep the B-meister in skating happiness.
Of course this madness drove us to the local sports store gathering gear for the occasion. Some of us haven't managed to put on skates in 16 + years, ahem. I blame it on the last decade of baby growing. Umm, yeah that's my excuse and I'm sticking with it.
At the heart of it I'm really all about summer and mostly think winter is better spent indoors. This ideal worked until the kids got bigger and longed for some outdoor living even in the coldest of months. And so out we go. In our snow pants. Skates. For a twirl around the pond. Surprisingly, I find I quite like it!
And though we still have yet to find a suitable pair for the youngests of our crew. They make their fun their own way.
