We have a beautiful place to skate in our community. It's on a lake/stream and the setting is so nice. The day was very cold, about 4 degrees, wind chill -15 or so. So we had to go warm up quite often.

But nothing a nice cup of hot chocolate couldn't remedy.

I recognize the location. I grew up just blocks from there and way back then all that area, including the pond was part of a gravel pit. My brother and I would take our dog and go hiking or bike riding for whole Saturdays at a time, wandering around in the "hills"

I suspect your kids will have memories of these days of skating and hot chocolate like I have of sack lunches and chasing the dog.
