ICE HOCKEY!

While on a driving tour of the city, we spotted all the regulars on Lake of the Isles playing hockey! This HOT NEWS was contrary to popular belief - we were told that hockey was over for the season. Much to Tim's delight, we scrambled around town to get Tim his hockey gear (turned out it was in Los Angeles), grabbed Craig, I changed into my warmest ensemble (not very warm) and were back on the ice in a flash! - Super fun outing!
I narrowly escaped frost bite many times this weekend...my hand should have been in that glove!!
Frozen Lake of the Isles...
Craig and Tim in "the warming house", which is a building with a great heating system next to the rink where you change, put on your skates, etc. - needless to say, I was a regular in this place! Meg freezing and about to pop back into the warming house...
Tim (dull skates and all) and Craig pre game
I was so excited to watch the boys in action!

My terrible attempt at the splits on a frozen lake!

Tim takes the puck!


The boys waiting their turn to get into the game...

oh, lovely... especially you doing the splits on ice. Not quite as good as your mom's splits but still pretty impressive

The only girl I know that can/would break in to the splits anywhere, let alone ice! Way to be!
