The pond is frozen!! It doesn't happen every year that it freezes enough for skating and when it does, we are like kids! We make sure it is safe by drilling a hole and measuring to ensure it is 6 inches deep. This year, much to our delight, we found out Magglio is actually a hockey player. He slipped and slid and loved every minute of it. Usually the first freeze of the year means super smooth clear ice but this was a little bumpy---but we enjoyed every minute!
