As hoped, the girls and I had fun ice skating on our backyard rink Saturday.
Josie wore knee and elbow pads under her sweats.
I didn't stay on the ice very long because the ice isn't quite firm enough to support lots of weight yet. Poor Chris wasn't able to enjoy all his hard work, but he will. We just need some more time and mother nature on our side. Good thing Michigan winters are long ones.
I've included a very short video of our Saturday ice skating adventures. I'm even being brave and including myself doing a tiny bit of twirling in the video. I haven't been on skates in 5 years and I'm looking forward to more ice time.
Later Saturday afternoon, Chris hung a string of plastic outdoor lanterns across the ice.
They are connected from the treehouse to our sunroom windows. They look amazing at night.
The ice rink has been perfect addition to our backyard fun!
