It was a beautiful winter day last weekend so DH and I decided that we would take a walk on our property. The children bundled up and we were pleased to find that the pond had frozen over. Being new to this whole outdoor adventure thing, we walked all over the pond, checking out every square inch to see how much room we would have for ice skating. What we did not realize was that since it was such a nice day, our boots were making nice tracks in the snow. The next day, the children could not wait to go try out this new ice skating adventure. When we got to the ice, we were disappointed to see that all of our wanderings were clearly marked with bumps and ridges across our new rink. So...that got Mommy thinking...after all if you know me at all, I already had visions of skating parties, and even had the menu pretty well planned in my head.
So DH grabbed a shovel, patient loving husband that he is, and started to chip away at the bumps, smoothing out all of the deep imprints that we had made. My mind started to think how we could possibly get water to flood the rink....without a source for water anywhere close-by, DH talks to farmer friend about his tank that he uses to water the fields.
