Maine Day 2... Day 827 19FEB11

Our second day in Maine dawned bright and much colder. Most everything that was slushy or wet yesterday was frozen solid this morning. We began the day with a filling breakfast and then Joshua left to be with his age group and Jarrod left to hang out with the other teens. Renee and I met with all of the other parents and had some fun playing games against our teenagers :) Joshua went swimming before lunch in the indoor pool with a view of all the snow outside. After lunch we began our outdoor fun. Renee and I took Joshua on a horse drawn wagon ride to see the countryside. The horse team were huge draft horses and were beautiful animals. We enjoyed the ride a lot. Next up was ice skating with Joshua. He took a few minutes to find his balance and then he took off. Joshua is a natural on the ice and pretty soon somebody showed up with a few hockey sticks and we had a blast. I was the goal and the kids enjoyed trying to get the puck between my feet. Next while Joshua was playing inside Jarrod and I took a snow shoe trek through the woods and out onto frozen Lake Sebago. We walked across the ice to an island out in the cove and then hiked back. It was a really fun walk and we were pretty tired by the time we made it back to the top of the hill. Next up was a little sledding and I took a ride for old times sake. It is still as much fun mow as it was when I was a kid. The rest of the afternoon we rested a bit and then headed up for dinner. Tonight we went skating again and then headed up to sit by the fire and watch a movie. Tomorrow is forecast to be even colder with a good chance for snow tomorrow evening. The boys are stoked :)
