What better way to spend Valentine's Day than on the frozen beach of Lake Ontario, wading up to your knees in slushy lake water?
Yeah, I can think of other activities, too. But this annual event benefits Special Olympics, so the frostbite on your toes is for a good cause. Our 12-year-old son Connor didn't enter the water this year, as temperatures were significantly colder than last year (though experienced plungers like my brother-in-law Stephen swear that colder air temperatures make the lake feel warmer), but he still raised money with his school's team that featured Principal David Dunn as one of its members. Check that item off your bucket list, Mr. Dunn!
