Last week it was freezing. Literally! The pond out back was frozen solid and we even caught a few glimpses of people venturing out onto it's surface. I don't think this is something we will see that often! One family all stood on the shoreline and watched as dad put on all his hockey gear and spent time skating around the ice with his stick and puck. Jersey and all - a true hockey fan! I'm not sure the mom trusted the ice enough for the kids to go out on it, which was probably a safe idea.
The day after I saw this group of kids on the ice, and was worried that they were out there all alone. I looked around and that's when I saw that their parents were sitting inside the window of a house across the street taking pictures. They were staying nice and cozy warm with their hot cocoa in hand!
