When in Ottawa, do as the Ottawans. If you live in Ottawa, you must skate on the Rideau Canal in the winter! It's a big must! It is an even bigger must (and bonus) if the temperature is a balmy -5°C like it was today. Colin is taking skating lessons this year, so we decided it would be good practice for him. I must say, after only three lessons, he is doing pretty good...kudos sweetie! Lilah liked it too, maybe the poutine a little too much! Next year, all being well, we are hoping to have her up and skating too! No more of this sitting in the stroller being pushed around! Mind you, it is handy to store all the boots and junk we have to carry!
