A few weeks ago, the baby turned 2.  We spent the day together as a family and celebrated.  One of the things we did that day was to venture out to Twin Lakes to go ice skating and sledding.

Yes, ice skating on a lake.  I was all kinds of freaked out, but there were lots of others there and it was (and had been) ridiculously cold, so I decided to just relax and go along for the ride.

Sweet birthday boy.  Waiting patiently while big brother gets his ice skates all laced up.

Around we go!


Little brother was content with being pulled around on the ice from the comfort of the sled.

Time to go sledding!

Let's go sled now.
