Last year we missed out on some of the best days of a very short skating season and this year I vowed to take advantage of as many skating days as possible.


Unfortunately pretty much as soon as it opened the Rideau Canal skateway had to close again due to super mild weather. I'm already regretting not having taken Elizabeth out of school early so that she could skate to music class last Tuesday.


It was cold and getting dark by the time we made it onto the canal this time but we made it!

Lauren and Donna came to visit Ottawa. We went to parliament hill, the History museum and the aviation museum, as well as skating at the rink of dreams since the canal was closed (too snowy!). Uncle Dave, Karen, Xander, Isabelle and Theo, Grandma and Grandpa H, Heather and Andre, Uncle Mark and Grandma J all came for a roast beast (beef) feast complete with gf Yorkshire pudding, potatoes, squash roast and salad. Black forest cake for dessert. I even managed Janice-safe Yorkshire pudding.


The older four kids all slept together in the basement, which I'm told was the "bestest part". Well, that and playing with cousins, which is always popular.

Creighton was ordained tonight so of course we had to come. All three kids were in attendance despite the latest of the hour. Elizabeth and Matthew were extremely good - sat quietly in the pew and even paid some attention. Matthew was particularly impressed by the bishop. Amelia was a bit fussy especially towards the end but I was assured she did not unduly disrupt things. We were so pleased to be able to participate.


Rachel made a pretty fabulous looking cake for the party afterwards.

It was such a glorious day that we went skating on the canal twice today.


The kids and I skated part way to church. Brendan drove so that we would have the car, then met us at the end. Matthew skated a little ways but I pretty much towed the younger two in the sled while Amelia tried to get off.


After church we went to fetch our first beavertails of the season (on skates of course) while Amelia napped.

I went to my friend Jessie's baby shower! Our church is about to have a little baby boom which is super exciting. I love babies, as long as they aren't puking on me :)


I was even more excited to discover that the canal was open for the season. Of course we had to grab our skates and go for a little skate.


It was Amelia's first time using her skates on the canal and she was super proud.
