Ice Skating With the Kids!

Last week we took the kids ice skating for the first time!   As a girl who Loves to skate, it makes me soo happy to live in a city with year round ice skating!!! =)

First up, we got the kids hooked up with skates:

The ones we rented for Caleb are THE CUTEST skates I have ever seen!

So tiny!

All set and so proud!

These two were so excited!!

It proved a little tricky for Caleb, so he spent most of the time playing behind the boards

You can't really see it, but I'm wearing my Canadian mittens here =)

Keenan got the hang of it really fast!

Moriah did a great job, too!

Coming back across the ice with Caleb

Love this!!

He was pretty happy sitting up here and watching

So proud of this guy!

She just kept at it and was getting around really well!

Can't wait to do this again!  =)   Taking my own kids skating is something I've been looking forward to for a long time!

I can't believe the Canadian flag hanging in the arena!

Mom W. said...

...and a big flag it is, is that a tribute to Canadian Hockey???

Nice that the kids can learn young, Caleb will "get it".

How exciting Joia! I remember going skating with you when you lived in Detroit. I hadn't known you were such a good skater! That's cool that the kids can rent skates until their feet stop growing...

Anyway, just a cute story. Last night when Mark went to give blood, he took his iPad with him to get caught up on reading your blog :) He said he had been quite behind, but he's all caught up now :)
