Kurt and I are always happy to get on our skiis, snowshoes, and skates. Right now skates are the most accessible. The Christmas Skate our local arena in Shawnigan puts on is incredible.
Complete with FREE entry (limited number of tickets available), FREE hot chocolate for everyone, a visit from St. Nicholas complete with cherry flavored candycane (J’s favorite) and a beautifully decorated rink (ads are covered with white plastic) including decorated trees, dim lighting, igloo, and even the Grinch! It is a truly magical way to get in the Spirit of the Season for our family.
Janelle and Daria both LOVE sliding down the ramp on krazy carpets (the first sledding of the season!) and Stefan is nuts about the ride-in cars – this year he got to have the Police car (Fischer Price) for a good half hour once he was all done standing on his own 2 feet.
This is the first year we have spent over an hour on the ice. Magical moments. I can’t wait until the 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th…. and 10th! Annual Christmas Skate!
Hope you and yours are enjoying some magical memory making in these few beautiful days before Christmas.
