Cap off the year with a bonfire!

So we have these awesome new neighbors. Who, when we invited them to spend New Year's Eve afternoon at the river with us, quickly rushed out and chopped all this wood for us to burn. Oh yeah. Obviously they know how to win our affection!

Despite the fact that the temperature was hovering around zero, the kids all rushed off to the water to play.
We old folks stayed closer to the fire. And were eventually joined by the two littles who just couldn't resist snacking.

As you can tell, it was an amazing day.

Griff was sure he could see fish in the water (his dad kept throwing rocks to help further that belief!) So he and Lizzie decided to entice them out with some fishy crackers.

We roasted some marshmallows.

And then the kids used this decking as an ice rink. Home made hockey. How Canadian :)


I like fire.

The kids like having their pictures taken.

Then we went home for spicy meatballs. After David polished off four glasses of water, Uncle Rob got him a new and bigger glass of water.
