Return of the backyard ice rink!

Chris is at it again getting our annual backyard ice rink ready for another season. 
With our unseasonably warm winter, we've had to delay setting it up.
Now, that we've got cold weather finally coming, we're ready. 
Let the freezing begin!

XOXO

I didn't realize that you had to build such an elaborate structure for the rink. It looks like quite a job, but I know that it is worth it...you all have so much fun and what wonderful memories. Happy skating!

Too cool!

I wish we could do that here! It's 70 degrees today. :) Maybe we could make a puddle.

You two are amazing parents! I wondered if the rink was up!! More memories in the making! I'm looking forward to some cute pictures!

I love your ice rink -- even I might try it, esp since I could skate back into the house for some hot chocolate! :) Have a great week!

Not to wish you freezing weather, but I know your family loves the ice rink, so hope you freeze soon, lol. It was 60's here yesterday but the cold is headed our way too. :)

Just wonderful! We went ice skating last week at our local ice rink. My kids would LOVE having one in their own backyard! Every year, yours looks more and more professional!
