Ice Skating

Daddy is now working 9/80 which means he works 9 hours a day M-F, but gets every other Friday off.  This was his first Friday off and we decided to do something special instead of the piles of projects around the house...we went ice skating!  We didn't think that the kids would last very long so we went for the last portion of the public skating time which is much cheaper.

Skates were put on...

Enough sitting around Mom...let's get on with this!


Their first time walking on the skates was fun (video)...

Daddy had the "honors" of taking the girls onto the ice for the first time (video).

Unfortunately, this is the only picture, or rather video I have of Daddy with Sweet Pea.  She did much better than this video shows as this was her first attempt.  It was really good exercise and a great experience for her and I'm positive that we will be going again soon.  Maybe next time I will take more pictures of her!!!!  (Thanks Daddy for being so good about taking pictures of Mommy when this was YOUR day!)

Angel was a natural from the start...(video)

And Daddy might have been most surprised by the fact that Mommy could skate!  I'm by no means good, but I can get around at least!  I have more admiration for my grandmother every time I think about her going out on the ice with me and helping me get around the rink!  I love and miss you Grandmother!!!!  (video)

And finally, the girls improved their ice skate walking as well...(video)

It was a great morning and I look forward to the next time we have Daddy home for an extra day!  We love you Daddy!

  1. I love it! That was so fun to watch. We should go together some time! Though I wish I had tried it with Tyler when he was a little lighter...gonna be impossible for me to hold him up. :P
