Ice Skating Party on Saturday

On Saturday we invited two families over to ice skate on the beautiful lake near our home. The ice was slick and smooth and very fast! The Dads had a great time trying out their speed and style on this wide open arena.
Maya still isn't so confident on the skates but with a little help from a friend she manages quite well. (Maya is in pink.)
The little boy in the group (2 years old) would NOT be left out! He screamed until his parents finally "made" skates for him with someone's boots and the blade covers. Although it didn't work so well, it did satisfy him.
Here are my "ice dogs" ....Pepe and Rosy Tulip! Our real dog LOVED the ice! What a funny Floridian dog!
We returned to our house for chili, sallad and pannacotta! and, of course, hot chocolate!

Maybe I'll get a little sewing done....

It's so clear it looks like GLASS! Like a window, not like ice on a lake. WOW!

Oh, what fun, looks really slippery. I have been iceskating a few times (at a rink) , and found that I go better backwards than forwards :) It would be fun to iceskate outdoors.
