A Winter Party on a Pond…

Winter Party on the Pond

This week-end was the [mostly] annual outside winter party on the family farm my mom grew up on… It was a great day for it — it snowed on and off all day — at times it was snowglobe-snow… which is my favorite. This pond is fantastic — large enough to hold quite a few family members at once — in the middle of a field, 2 seconds from the house… a storybook skating pond, really.

The kids had a blast — not only being outside, but playing with their “friends” (aka my numerous cousins!) Alexandre especially had fun when most got off the ice at the end… that’s when he put on his skates and decided to skate alone, like he had told us he would do. He had a blast — throwing himself down, rolling around and getting back up — with a huge smile on his face. Elizabeth especially loved sliding and following my cousins around!
