Winter FUN!

This is how I like winter.  The ice was a good 10 inches thick but the weather was up into the 40's so we could enjoy it.  Granted, had the weather not been below freezing (and often MUCH below freezing) for as long as it has been 40 degrees would equal rotten ice....but as it was.  YAY!

We spent several hours (the boys spent longer) out on the ice fishing.  (I wanted to skate but my ice skate laces needed replaced AND all the snow on TOP of the ice melted so there was about 2 inches of water on top of the not good skating anyway.

But lots of good fish.  And photo ops.  :)

Just hit the ice.  WOO HOO!

M to the left and me and L.....just getting started.

G caught a big one. 

L didn't want to touch the fish but she liked putting the little ones back.  Enter the slotted spoon we scooped the ice out with.  

There he goes....back into the water.

Just keep fishin.  Just keep fishin.

Just keep fishin, fishin, fishin.

The whole group.

watching the sunset at Nanny and Pappy's house drinking hot cocoa after a succesful day of ice fishin.

And THAT is what winter should look like!
