First Time Ice Skating

Figure skating was a huge part of my life growing up and continued as I coached kids thru my college years. As soon as I found out that I was pregnant with girls, I started dreaming about taking them ice skating. We finally decided they were old enough to try it out last week on my birthday. It was so much fun!!! I was so happy that they were both super excited to skate and stuck with learning the toddler basics for a good half hour. They both really want to go again so I consider that a big win!!! Lexi told me several times "let go of me, go away" because she wanted to be like the bigger kids and skate by herself. I still stuck close by.

Hopefully they continue to like skating  when we go again. It was such a fun family moment for the four of us to skate together. Here is Lexi showing her skills after about half an hour on the ice.
