Why I Moved to the Country: Reason #22

Skating Parties
Sometimes planned while others, like this one, are impromptu. 
Both are fun and we're happy our 'rink' gets used frequently.
It's been the hit of our country road this winter.
Neighbours come, and bring their friends, who bring their families and friends.


Be well friends!

How fun and wonderful to have the neighborhood rink in your yard! (And a lovely windmill as a backdrop).

Yet another great reason! -Tammy

Oh, oh, I remember skating parties back when I lived in Ohio. A big bonfire on the bank of the little frozen pond. What a great memory. Thank you.
