This post is a few days late! We filled up the ice rink earlier this week since it was finally cold enough to do so.
Eric decided to go with a tarp this year instead of poly plastic stuff. We’ll see if it holds up. He’s already worried that it’s gonna be leaky and heat up too much because of the color. I think his fear is legitimate!
The ice skaters were very excited to see the rink being filled!
The special guests (Gma Kim and Gpa Danny) were also very excited about the rink.
Dylan kept busy with paper airplanes while waiting for the rink to be filled.
Gpa Danny warmed up with a new sweatshirt for his 61st birthday (next week) while waiting for the rink to fill up.
And the next day – we had ice! Dylan shoveled off the fine dusting of snow that fell during the night and then…
He was off! Avery joined him on the ice for ohhhhh about 2 minutes. Totally worth getting all her snow gear on. ; )
Here he is doing some drills – stepping over sticks.
