Our "blank canvas"
The boys worked hard decorating their houses...
Our finished village, complete with sugar snow.
Here's our village on display, we entered the competition...
We won a prize! The snow globe in the front that is printed with the Winterland Gingerbread logo and we can put a picture into it to remember the day.
The boys had a lot of fun skating.
They both started out using the buckets to figure out their balance.
They took lots of breaks to play in the snow...
We were kicked off the ice for a short break so the Zamboni could do it's job.
Then we were back on the ice.
They turned on their snow machines for a few minutes, the boys thought that was pretty cool.
It didn't take long for Cody to drop the buckets and skate on his own. He had a few falls, but nothing major and kept getting back up.
Tyler took longer to be convinced he could skate without the buckets, so he and I took some times going around the ice.
He eventually let go as well and was doing great!
I think we're all warmed up to hit the outdoor rink in the next couple of weeks.
