Ice Skating

Yesterday I got off work a little early and Sadie was still at preschool. John and I wanted to do something special with the big kids. They are always so good about letting Sadie participate and not being upset that we can't do something because she is too small. It doesn't happen often, but it does happen.

So we decided to take them to the seasonal ice skating rink in town. It was about 65-70 degrees outside and for some reason it never occured to me that it would be colder on the ice!

Andy was a little unsure. He had legs slipping and sliding all over the place, but always had a huge smile!
Julie was much more adventurous. She loved scooting along the walls and did lap after lap.
They had buckets for them to push along, but at the end of the day, Andy enjoyed holding Dad's hand more. He did about 5 laps then was amused sitting on the sidelines and watching everyone else skate.
Julie also tried the buckets but ended up using the wall more. She skated for 2 solid hours. And was sad when our turn was up. I think that she will need to go back and skate some more.
It was great fun having some time with our big kids and fun for John and I to get to skate too. John is a way better skater than I am, but we had a blast.

Love it! We went to the one in SLO last year but it was really crowded. This looks way better (and I think it is cheaper than the SLO rink).
