I’m a warm weather girl but I think I might get used to ice skating a bit more often after the family fun we had today!
The girls convinced their dad to take them ice skating last weekend. They had so much fun that they begged to go back again this weekend so they could show me just how naturally skilled they are.
I have to say they surprised me. The 13 yr old is doing spins, balancing on one foot and jumping. And the 6 yr old is out there with her dad, sliding between his legs and hopping back around holding just one hand.
We brought the guys along today and even they blew me away. The 17 yr old was like a little speed racer out there, flying by everyone. The 14 yr old struggled a bit, having an issue with the whole leaning forward part.
Even I impressed myself once I realized how important it was to have my skates tied really tight. The 17 yr old was nice enough to hold my hand to try to hold me up the first time around the rink. Pretty sweet, huh? The 6 yr old was smart enough to realize she was better off holding her daddy’s hand if she didn’t want to fall.
We had so much fun together…seriously, the best time in months! This time it’ll be me hoping we can go back soon.
