Skating in Ottawa!

I didn't think I could still do it! 

 The last time I tried to ice skate (after many, many years) I could barely balance myself, but I couldn't come up here again and let the opportunity pass me by!

So I took a chance, laced up, and took the plunge!


I did it!  
(check me out in my skates!) 

And I have to say that the feeling of gliding across the ice again was the most fun I've had in years!  {Guess all of those years of lessons weren't for naught!}

I absolutely loved it!  


The Rideau Canal was packed today for Family Day in Ontario!  Music, hundreds (thousands?) of people on the ice, BeaverTails, hot chocolate, poutine, so fun!
