Ice skating

It seems the weather will turn slightly warmer so last Saturday might well have been the last time we have ice skate. In the afternoon we went to the home of Ida's parents. We hadn't actually seen it as they had moved in after we last had been back to The Netherlands.

The kids went with "Opa" to the Uddelermeer, while Ida and I went to see if we could borrow some skates of the parents of our (through Ida's brother) sister-in-law Gerdien.

And yes, we found a fitting pair. It was already busy at the Uddelermeer, and blue clear skies as well:

I found Opa (Ida's dad) and Auke and Dieuwe ice skating:

But although they can start together, this was more the usual picture: Opa at the back, Dieuwe in the middle and Auke in the front:

And here the proof that yes, I was on the ice as well! It went sort of ok, would need to train a bit more to gain strength in my ankles as they weren't up to scratch to ice skate for more than 15 minutes at a time anymore.

Opa treated the kids on hot chocolate and split pea soup:

After a while Gerbert and Gerdien arrived as well with Hilde, their daughter and AnneRoos' niece:

All in all, a nice day.
