Early in the afternoon we were joined by the Eddy children as we headed down to the Brysons, had a quick sleigh ride (another first) down to the pond and started to clear the almost foot of snow off of the ice. That took a while but we finally were able to clear enough to skate on and the fledgling Sauves took to the ice. What Fun!! Yes, it took a little while to get used to but as the hours pasted we were skating around there like nothing and even though Josh had to take his off because they were hurting his ankles, the guys got a hockey game going and I(Grace) played Zamboni/snow scraper for the rink.
As the day wore on and our toes were calling for warmth, the ladies of the group indulged in another tractor pulled sleigh ride down the road and back again until it was time to head home for good.
