A Canadian Tradition

It's a Canadian tradition.
However, it's a rare treat in this part of Canada.
It has to be cold enough (which it often isn't),
and the conditions have to be perfect (which they often aren't).

Fraser, Howie, and Calvin ~ on a local pond.

The boys took advantage of the great conditions and
played a total of about nine hours over three days last week.
Howie, on the other hand, had to work and was feeling his age.
He spent about an hour on the ice.

Today, it is raining and the ice is melting.
By all accounts, they had fun, and great memories were made.
Which is a good thing, because it may be a few years 
before it happens again.

Happy Monday!
With Love, Camille

What an awesome photo!
Sometimes you have to change things up to enjoy what comes our way.
What a blessed time for those three.

Much love to you, Camille~

Chelle ~ It's warmed up and everything is melting. It was fun while it lasted. Enjoy your winter wonderland! Hugs to you. :)

Esther ~ Yes, indeed! Outdoor skating is the best as long as there is hot chocolate nearby. Hugs to you! :)

Debbie ~ The Lord is so very good to us to give us these special times, isn't He? Warm hugs! :)

The snow was a treat for us too as our little guy had so much fun in it.
