Hands down, the best part of living up here is experiencing things we otherwise never would. And the best part of those new adventures, is having them together.
The lake has frozen around 9 inches deep and the ice games have begun. There are ice fishers all over the bay with their tents and heaters, drilling through the ice and catching some supper. I've seen all sorts of fun ice sports taking place. It's so amazing to me that this beautiful place that is such a hub in the summertime is also a fun place to come in the winter. It feels and looks like an entirely different spot than this summer.
I am pretty fascinated with the frozen waters and decided it was time to go out and walk on it. I'm not sure how many times in my life I will get the opportunity to walk above water, so this was an opportunity we had to snatch. We ventured out this weekend, and I can't tell you how exhilarating it was to walk on a lake! Absolutely incredible!
Ezra was not a fan at first and had to warm up to the idea. He was just certain he was going to fall through. After he realized we were safe, he had a blast.
Levi was just in awe of it all and was fairly sure he saw a whale swimming around under there. ;) That, or a shark. Hehehe.
It is super fun experiencing these things for myself, but it brings it to a whole other level being able to give our boys these exciting moments and to share them with them. We are certainly having a winter unlike anything we have ever seen before, and it has been absolutely amazing to witness.
I'm so thankful for these moments together with my precious little family. Memories upon memories!
