What a delightful day it was!!
Lauretta and her brother, Thaddaeus came over this morning and spent most of the day with us, only going home when we had to leave to attend a meeting...
(That's Lauretta in the purple coat and Thaddaeus in the blue-jeans.)
For a while, we just skated, trying to get used to being on skates again... (That's me.)
Then Andrew dug out the hockey sticks and puck and we had some more active fun!
(Jacob's in the orange hat.)
This picture is one of my favorites when you can see it larger,
as both Andrew and Thaddaeus look very happy!
Ready, set, go....
Lauretta had to take it easy still with her ankle and all.
She took most of these pictures, for which I'm grateful! :)
Another of my favorites! Can you find the puck???
Not sure where it is in this picture? Jacob's not sure either, it looks like!
It was a gorgeous day and it didn't take long for the snow to get very mushy...
Me, guarding the goal and waiting for the action that is sure to come!
Andrew gave me "Mad Gab" for my birthday this year and it was pretty hilarious playing that with our friends!!! Some of those sayings were so hard to make out!
Andrew and Thaddaeus invented a new, challenging variation of tick-tack-toe! I was visiting with Lauretta and my mom, so didn't figure out how this is played, but by how much they were enjoying it, I'm sure I'll get a chance to play or observe it again another time...
Tomorrow, there is a new adventure awaiting me and some of my friends, but you'll have to wait to learn about that...
