Cold, sunny Sunday afternoon

This is how you spend a cold, sunny Sunday afternoon here in Canada! You hop in the car, go to friends who have a large farm, a large open field, thawed snow, which frooze up again and turned into an ice skating field!!

You send your husband and kids on the ice with hockey sticks......



Let them have lots of fun........




Stay on the save side yourself.......


Take some nice winter photos........


Love it when you get a good shot of your daughter...... and in the meantime freeze your "youknowwhat" of.... Man, I was really chilled to the bone, couldn't feel my toes anymore, but had lots and lots of fun! My friend Cindy had made hot chocolate with marshmellows (which is sooooo good!), rice crispie cookies (also good!), chips and all kind of snacks for everybody! After about 2 hours we (the ones that didn't skate and the ones that were frozen he, he) headed back to the house and Cindy and I had coffee with Baileys, well, can tell ya, that'll warm you up fast!!!!


And now.. everybody here is hanging on the couch, all rosey cheeks and still kind of cold, but we really had a fun afternoon!

OMG hun - what amazing photo's - very jealous of your snowy conditions ... especially when I don;t have to drive in it - and in desperate need of some Winter pics.

Hope you're all OK - good to hear from you. Take care and stay special :)

Owww.... dat is pas ├ęcht koud, brrrr....!!!! Gelukkig neigt het hier een beetje naar voorjaar! Maar dit is natuurlijk wel leuk voor de kids! Ik geloof niet dat mijn kinderen ooit nog leren schaatsen!

Oh wow, these pictures are SO great!!!! Mostly, I guess, because we would NEVER be able to do anything remotely like this Down South. I think it is so cool that you and your family can hang out like this. I LOVE it!!!!!!!

WOW!!! well, i think i am a little too much of an "indoors" kind of girl to want to DO that on my sunday afternoon...but it sure is fun to read about and see your FAB pics!!! (i'd be up for the hot chocolate & cookies part tho...that is well within my skills!) :)
