Well Eric finally returned yesterday and arrived home to find that the dock is now in its final resting place for the winter. In the lake. While he was gone, it was colder than cold and the lake started to freeze yesterday morning. Then it snowed. So he got home and determined that it just wasn’t going to happen. So we’re leaving it in. I think it will be a lovely bench for when we need to take an ice skating break! So, keep your fingers crossed that she makes it thru the winter and is still usable next summer! Here are some pics from yesterday too. DD was pretty excited about the snow and trying out his new shovel. Milly even came out to frolic in the snow!
