For our last day of winter break we headed out to Lake Lowell to check out if it was frozen or not. Mike made a hole and the ice was at least 4 inches thick. The girls put on their ice skates and skated a around for a while. Then they pulled out the sheds to play with. We all went for a walk around the lake and explored. It was interesting how the ice is different in so many spots and how new snow has frozen in patterns. We wrote in the snow, collected icicles and slid around for 2 hours. Then we headed home for dinner and an early bed before school started back up. It was a nice day even if it was still under freezing out.
