Well, it's cold enough to freeze spit before it hits the ground around here. Frostbite city! But perfect for making an ice-rink. The kids got to hit the ice today and were quite thrilled with their dear old dad and all his GREAT effort in getting this going. An ice rink in their own front yard! What more could a kid ask for?? (except maybe a few friends to drop by to join them and/or play some hockey with). Time to get out the hot chocolate and marshmallows!
PS_This was their first steps onto the ice while Steve was adjusting their helmets to accomodate toques (did I mention it was cold enough to freeze your nose hairs?). Don't worry, I wouldn't send my kids onto the ice without proper hockey helmets! (Face mask and all, we love their teeth the way the are!)
