Our family loves to ice skate. So much that we all own a pair of hockey skates, and the big boys have their favorite sticks. Around here, hockey is a big deal! But it doesn't always get to happen. Last year we didn't have a time when the ice froze right. This year, we got a text that said, ice is like silk. Let's go skate. So a big community gathering begins!! Everyone bundles up for an afternoon on the ice. Since we didn't know if we would have any more chances to go this year, we skated 3 afternoons in a row. It was so much fun!
