clovers on ice

a couple weeks ago i found a groupon to ice skate at the frog pond in boston common.  something i have tried to do for the last couple of years, but jeremy always comes up with excuses - "it's too cold" or "it's too warm" (for reals).  so i snagged the good deal before jeremy could oppose the notion to make sure that it happened this winter.  and my planned worked out great.

we met downtown after work and school yesterday and walked over to the frozen frog pond.  on the way, jeremy was wondering why we were doing this.  he was sure we would be terrible at it.  i had my doubts, but was in it for the experience.  luckily once we got on the ice, our worries were abated.

 we were cruising around in no time.  neither of us fell and jeremy kept looking over and saying, "i'm so glad we did this," so the adventure was deemed a success. we skated, watched the zamboni clean the ice, and skated some more until our ankles were sore.  then we filled our bellies with delicious grub and hot chocolate and made our way home.

it was a lovely night, indeed.
