If I haven’t mentioned it, our younger son has been begging to go ice fishing since last winter. Unfortunately for him there wasn’t any ice last winter. This winter found us extremely busy but luckily for him the ice has been thick and long lived. We were able to get to my parents’ cottage a for a couple days several weeks ago and the kids got to go out on the ice and fish the hard water. The fish weren’t biting at all, but the kids didn’t seem to care, they just thought it was cool being out on the ice. There is also a nice hill at a park a few lots down from my parents that was perfect for sledding. A good time was had by all.
