~ An Ice Rink Evolves ~

This past weekend we embarked upon putting together an ice rink. I say "we" because I'm all about the honesty folks! The task of documenting this feat with a camera is no less important.
I tell you....no less important!
Besides, it was cold and muddy out there you know. I'm a girly-girl and tend to balk at the idea of manual labor in not so pleasant conditions. Plus, I just painted my fingernails.



Here's Tradesman measuring....I just love it when he does that.

Here he is wielding a hammer....I love it when he wields a hammer.


My oldest child wasn't about to be left out of all the action...

Apparently, his brother felt like watching was a better option...

His sister on the other hand shares my DNA and felt like the whole thing was a little boring and decided to provide her own entertainment...

Blowing kisses to her adoring audience...

The baby of the family was hard at work...

We'll give her points for at least holding a hammer...

A little tuckered out there buddy...

All that stargazing, and lounging must be exhausting...

Alas, he redeems himself.

I on the other hand, retreated to my warm kitchen and made myself a nice hot cup of cocoa.
I had very important, much more labor intensive things to do...really I did.
Pictures don't load onto the computer by themselves you know! They need highly skilled, driven, non-lazy people like myself to handle that.
That's just what you were thinking weren't you?

please forgive my horrible ignorance - i thought you would have snow where you are?? perhaps you are so close to the lake, and it is really humid? i'm sure it will be a lovely skating rink! we have lots of snow - which is nice - but these days the -30 weather gives me quite the reminder that we aren't too far from the arctic!

You'd think we would have snow, but winter is so crazy around here! It is currently dropping in temperature so we should be skating this weekend!
-30...ah, not pleasant! I think I'd be daydreaming about somewhere sunny!
