Our First Time Skating

Posted by Roneil Icatar On 2/17/2010 10:32:00 PM

The kids are on their winter vacation and today we took them ice skating for the first time.  I guess watching all the skating on the Olympics got them excited to get out on the ice (although for some reason, neither of them would let me throw them into the air!)  Annalise has previously done some rollerblading, so she took to the ice right away and was zooming around.  Isabella was just as excited to get out on the ice but was a little more cautious as she hasn’t rollerbladed before.  She started out using a walker to help her balance and to get used to the skating motion.  Soon after, she shed the walker and just held one of our hands to keep her balance.  Finally, near the end of the session, she didn’t even need to hold our hands as she was able to skate on her own!  Unfortunately, Nathaniel loved wearing the skates, but refused to touch the ice with them, so one of us had to carry him the whole time.  All in all, it was a great time and the kids are looking forward to hitting the ice again soon!  Check out these pictures and video of our day!

Everyone loves watching the zamboni
