skating on thin ice...

I dislike winter, it's just way too cold. I've decided after living with cold winters all of my life that if you can find fun things to do in the winter weather than it makes it a little better. So...we decided to introduce our kids to ice skating.
I think I was just as excited as they were when we were planning to go!
They had no idea what to expect. My son had ideas of getting out there
and speeding like a hockey star!
Of course, that did not happen. There were lots
of falls but, no tears. Only laughter and smiles.
We skated for over 2 hours. We didn't
want to leave we were having so much fun.
my arms and back were sore the next day from trying to hold the kids up
and keep them from falling but, thankfully I did not fall.
We really had a good time. It made the wintry day just a little more bearable.
