new years day we spent all day at the cove, a small
swamp pond in our town that freezes.
we packed up the skates, shovels and snacks
1st job was to clear the ice
the sun came out and the ice was amazing!
for 4 hours we shoveled, skated….and Cooper ate snow.
kids enjoyed the sled rides…adults got a work out pulling the sled!
until the sled went too fast…and cooper wanted off!
but he got back and then he fell out, mittens fell off….just a few tears.
don’t worry….he recovered and played with his trucks and tried to find Nemo through the ice.
they think they spotted him!
while the big kids played hockey
the little kids skated on the small rink
i was told to stop worrying about the ice that looked like this.
this was Caroline’s hair after we took off her helmet….yikes!!!! thank goodness a neighbor came to our rescue with some detangler!!!!
