We went to Ottawa's winterlude ice slides on its last weekend. We had fun, despite the odd grumble about the slides being a bit disappointing. Our local sliding hill is more fun, but this set up put on by the city does a good job of attracting people, and the more people get outside the better!!

|Scandinavian style push sleds were a big hit.|
|No good pics but here's one lot of ice slides, with Tadhg in red on the left.|
|Siobhan, Brendan and Tadhg's first 'beaver tails'- a big fried mess of doughnut batter and sugar. A walk down memory lane for Steve.|
We've also done a lot of sliding this year. Sometimes with the nieghbour kids and their tube slides, sometimes with the Reinhart-Smiths or school friends and their families. Sometimes boys only and sometimes Siobhan tags along and does one or two runs- though this is getting increasingly uncomfortable as the belly expands!
And this delightful snow family greeted us one day when we turned up at our friends' house to visit.
|Just a nice one of the boys watching skaters on the rink.|
