Skating on the Rideau Canal in Ottawa is about as romantic a tradition as one can get in a count

That's where I was yesterday - skating in the sunny winter afternoon. Skating badly, but skating nonetheless. I even learned how to skate backwards... sort of.

So tonight, for my Valentine's date, Alex and I are going skating in Toronto. Very exciting!

Even though it's a lot of driving to go to Ottawa for the weekend, it's always worth it. Jaap has been staying with my brother in Ottawa for a week or so now, so I got to see him, which was nice. And of course I got to catch up with Will.

But the nicest surprise was visiting my cousin Jason and his patner Krystal and their two kids, Balin and Durin. I am totally in love; Balin is the most energetic loving little kid! He showed me his toys and we played Mr Potato Head and lots of pretend. He loved having someone to play with and covered me in kisses. I now totally want a baby. Sigh. OK, maybe not a baby exactly, but a three-year-old would be nice.

I guess for now I'll have to make do with a boyfriend. It's almost the same thing ;)
