Christmas Eve Skating

Two years ago, for our first Christmas here, we went to Calgary on Christmas Eve afternoon to skate on the Bow River, and this year we decided to do the same. The skating area was quiet, only a few hardy souls braving the -13 deg C temperature, and it was great that we could all be skating at the same time, although there is quite a gulf between the level Danny & I are at, and that of Olga and Lara!
It was a lovely way to pass a couple of hours before coming home and getting the kids ready for bed. Lara has our digital clock in her room tonight, with strict orders to not wake us before it reads 6:00.
