Kids On Wheels

 The girls have been begging us to take them ice skating.  They are pretty sure they will already be great at it and that it will be "super easy, Mom."  I actually hate ice skating and would be fine never stepping skate on rink ever again.  When we had nothing to do tonight I decided to let the girls decide what we should do and they chose ice skating. We couldn't find a rink nearby that was open for public skating until later so we decided to try roller skating instead.  We were a giant disaster on wheels.  I have always been a terrible skater and I haven't strapped my blades on for at least 15 years.  My serious lack of practice combined with trying to hold onto New Fish on wheels was a joke.  New Fish hated it.  Red Fish loved it and actually stayed on her skates pretty well after her first few laps.  Surprisingly, I had a great time just being with the kids and trying not to fall down.  After we finished teetering around the rink we went into a play area full of air cannons and shot foam balls at each other in a giant Nerf-gun style war.  It was a fun night.

I cannot skate either but my kids love it! And they are all good at it. We should have the guys take the kids skating and we can watch and take pictures. My kids could help your kids...
