Winterlude 2006

So we packed up our gang and headed downtown to enjoy Winterlude, one of the largest winter festivals in the world. It was cold but comfortable and nice and sunny. We didn't take our skates but walked along the Rideau Canal, the world's largest ice skating rink!! Once we saw so many people with their strollers on the ice we decided we would come back and skate while pushing the boys in the double stroller! Maybe tomorrow or next weekend :-)

Pete takes a spill on the ice and hams it up:



Here is a view of the canal and you can see Paul pulling Pete in the sled there:

Yummy, we had to stop for a Beaver Tail, an Ottawa specialty! It's basically deep fried dough with cinnamon and sugar coating it! Delicious!

Here's what it looks like!!

Pete has his first even Beaver Tail!!!


Here is me carrying little David!

Don't worry he is snug and warm in there!







Here are a couple of the snow sculptures - we didn't make it all the way down to the actual ice sculptures so we will do that tomorrow or next weekend! The canal is several kilometres and the ice sculptures are at the other end . . .

So glad you shared something from 2 years ago! Look how little your boys were!

And that beaver tail thing looks SO good. I love just about anything with sugar and cinnamon on it!

Thanks for linking up! : )
