It's now the middle of March, and with climbing temperatures, many of Toronto's outdoor rinks have closed for the season. But with all the freezing cold days in February and early March, there have been lots of opportunities to skate. Sometimes we've gone with friends, sometimes Justin takes the kids by himself. This particular afternoon--the only time I happened to have my camera close by--it was a magical time on the ice. The kids were starting to get the hang of it. The ice was smooth but the air wasn't too cold. It was during twilight. And then, if that wasn't sweet enough, it started snowing. Big soft flakes. I'm usually not a huge fan of cold and wet outdoor activities, but even I couldn't deny that this afternoon was almost perfect.
