Wednesday's Weekend Wrap-up
Saturday morning saw us enjoying coffee and scrambles at the Beanery while Sam and the girls coloured. At noon Richard and I headed out for the first mountain bike ride of the season and had a total hoot, despite there still being several inches of snow on the upper part of the loop. Later in the afternoon, we all went out tobogganing and had a fire -- the photo below is Bill and Sam with their race faces on, ready to decimate the competition. Super fun and warm, with the snow disappearing fast.
Sunday morning we bade farewell to the Baker Boys and then scooted up to Faulder for some skating action on the Dueck's Best Backyard Rink Ever. It was just cold enough to keep the ice from turning into a giant grey Slurpee, so the kids were happy to play around on the ice and we didn't bother with a fire.
Update: Forgot to record the Mennonite feast on Thursday night with the Hildebrands, featuring vareniki my mom made special for us. Lorne was in his glory.
