For Brad's birthday, he and I went for a kick sled ride on Wood Lake. The time together was really cool and the ice was perfect! We then walked towards the two little islands which was over 1/2 way across the lake. There were parts of the ice that were frozen so evenly, that it was like being on a skating rink. The ice was also so clear, that if you watched very closely, you would have been able to see fish. It was a memorable experience.
On Sunday, Molly, Ivan, Siri and I played on the ice for quite a while with the kick sled and ski poles. I just love playing together and giggling/smelling the fresh, clean air!
On Monday, I took a solo trip out to the islands on the kick sled with ski poles. It was a chilly trip back to the house, but it was great exercise. I took photos and will be sending them to St. Croix to share with people who have never seen a frozen lake ;).
