a lovely winter sunday

to take advantage of the below zero temperatures here in the Netherlands, we spent the afternoon skating (in Museumplein). and it was lovely. the following are some pictures to share it with you:

me on my borrowed Nordic skates - i did really well, especially since it's been about 6 years since i last skated - and nordic skates are a lot longer than i'm used to. and i enjoyed it tons (and am only a bit sore).


a random close up as we paused on the ice.


enjoying the skating by dancing - i thought they were doing great!


and it ended with a fire, candles, cookies and hot chocolate in the Kajuit.

lovely, eh? just how winter should be enjoyed.

Oh that *does* sound lovely!! I want desperately to go skating, but I'm not sure it's safe while you're holding a baby ...
