First Time Walking on a Lake

How exciting is it the first time you walk on a frozen lake?

We had lunch with Nana this weekend and made a pitstop at a local park when I saw the lake was frozen over. "Girls, have you ever walked on a frozen lake?"

"No.... what!?"

They didn't believe me until they kicked the snow away and looked down -- at ice! Sheer amazement!

So we made our way along the shore to some ice fishermen to peer in the fishing holes and actually see the water. "Can you believe there are fish swimming right below our feet?" I asked. "NO WAY!" The guys told us it was 8 to 10 inches deep - SOLID. And with temps averaging 25 degrees, we didn't think that was going to change anytime soon.

We told the girls that when I was little, we'd take shovels and clear a ice rink in the snow -- which they thought sounded like a darn good idea. Too bad we didn't come prepared.

Winter is kind of amazing some days.
