boys of winter

i happened to look out the window to the backyard just before dusk and saw the neighbor boys
having some winter fun.
they were shoveling the
snow off the frozen creek to make way
for some ice hockey.
if you look close you can see 2 little pumpkins - how cute is that for a 
a makeshift goal.
or were they using the pumpkins as "stones" for a curling game? 
 future winter olympians?

also if you look close you can see
the small fire that is just getting going
on the ice.
my camera lost battery power as the fire 
was getting bigger so i don't have a better photo of the fire.

the creek rarely freezes over.
guess spontaneous hockey on the frozen creek
is one of the perks of this coooooold winter.

the neighbor boys playing on the frozen creek
 reminded me of the sleding scene in 
the movie "it's a wonderful life" 
so picturesque.

it also brought back memories of our boys exploring the woods,
building forts, canoing down the creek.
it was a wonderful life.
