Winterlude in Ottawa

We spent Winter vacation and the girls birthday week in Ottawa. We had a blast.
There was Ice Skating on the CANAL.

Tons of beautiful ice sculptures

And of course many opportunities to have a Beaver Tail. Even Obama had a Beaver Tail while we were there. And can you believe we were SO close, yet we missed him by just a block. The buzz around town while he was there, was just so cool. Some girls who did see him in the Market said (and I quote) "Obama Rocks!" I wonder if they got their phone video up on you tube, I'll have to check.

And a very special day to celebrate their 8th birthday. They made their own necklaces, picking out their own beads at the bead shop and got all dressed up to go to the Museum of Civilization. The Egyptian exhibit was on there as well as a fabulous childrens section.

We got together with some great friends and had so much fun, unfortunately, too much fun to remember to take photos.
And now for SOCKS (of course)
The socks were completed upon return from our trip.
Pattern: Harika Socks by Stephanie van der Linden
Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill supersock in Black and Spanish Moss.
Needles: US1 (2.25mm)
Love these socks, my new favorites and with the stranding are nice and toasty warm.

The socks are great, but that picture of you with your girls is just beautiful!
