The kids go Ice-Rinking in the backyard. . .

The kids had lots of fun - and lots of falls. 




Jonas got the biggest goose-egg I had ever seen.  I could hardly look it at it disgusted me so.  This was a few hours afterwards (he would not let me take a picture right away) - nothing in comparison to what it was.  It literally was golf-ball sized.  Jonas was quite upset and declared, "I won't go back on the rink for 3 day!"  But what that translated into was, "I'm going to go out on the rink 3 more times today!"   Ha.  The kids now wear ski-helmets.

After dinner the boys went out with their headlamps on - with Ben.  They had another wonderful time on the rink.  Emmy went to and stayed for about 1/2 the time.  It's pretty neat.

Here's a fun video of them doing the "Jonas slide"

Indeed they love it.  It's 7:45am and all three big kids are already suited up and out there.  :)
