Help with sentences in norwegian

I am trying to write about winter vacation but am not sure about words in "preteritum". Does this sound ok? Der vi skied rundt innsjø, men mange skøyter på frosset vann. Hver dag hadde jeg mange forskjellige aktiviteter med barna.

In Norwegian, "ski" is just a noun, not a verb like in English. So "to ski" translates to "gå på ski"(langrenn)/"stå på ski"(alpint). "Der gikk vi på ski rundt innsjøen, men mange skøytet på det frosne vannet." Your last sentence is OK.
