Who needs to go to a fancy ice skating rink when there’s big puddles out there just waiting for you?
At Christmas time, there’s so much to do. Recently we’ve taken in the Christmas lights at The Spirit Of Winter Festival of Lights at Sovereign Estate Winery, made Christmas cookies & gingerbread houses, and even visited some penguins at Wooddale Church’s Family Christmas.
