More Ice Skating

We went ice skating again on Sunday. This time, instead of going into town, we loaded up the 4 wheeler and went out to my husband's parents house. They have a pond on their property that gets most of it's use during the summer months (with the exception of our once a year ice fishing expedition), but now that the girls and I have ice skates and the (4 wheel drive) Gardener has his toy, we can go out there for a little ice skating.
It was the most gorgeous winter day on Sunday. The sun was shining bright and there was NO WIND. A rarity around here! Even in the 20s, it was perfectly comfortable. The girls even took their jackets off toward the end because they were sweating so much under all the layers.

There was some snow on the frozen pond, but the Gardener didn't mind cleaning it up for us. It was just powdery snow, so it didn't hamper our skating one bit.

We brought along a chair for Binny to push around while she is still trying to get the hang of having 2 skinny blades strapped to her feet.
The girls also hitched a ride from Daddy...












It was a fun Sunday afternoon. Except for the part when Flash thought it was so much fun to run full speed into us and knock us over. Not funny, you little shit.

That is so much better than going to a rink!

I love that close up shot of the blade on the ice!

I bet the girls loved the ride on the back of the Gardener's toy!
