After several days of cold weather, Swan Lake was just getting frozen enough to safely walk on, so Rowan and I went to the lake to spend a little time at the edge of the ice. (We were a little more cautious than some who ventured out into the middle, despite the fact that the fire department had not yet declared it deep enough to skate on.)
Rowan thought the ice was pretty fun. I was beginning to regret making sure she was dressed so warmly, as I started to get cold and hungry long before she did.
This was the first time that Rowan was old enough to walk around on the ice by herself, as we did not make it down to the lake when it was frozen the last couple of years.
