A New Adventure

The plan for yesterday was to head to Richland for a birthday party. The kids were all ready to go and so excited to go rollerskating ( they have never been before). We had coats on and everything, just waiting for my dear husband to get home( a little miscommunication). We waited, and waited, and waited some more. By the time he got home it was too late to make the two hour drive. My kids were so disappointed. The look on their faces was so sad I could hardly bear it. So I had to come up with an alternative and quickly. Here is what I came up with!

Ice skating!

What a comedy of errors! We spent a little of an hour at the ice rink and made a complete circle of the rink TWICE! Cody couldn't keep his little legs still, they were every where. I finally had to hold onto the hood of his jacket just to keep him upright. Emilee did pretty good. As long as she was hanging onto the wall she could scoot around at a fairly decent speed. We made our two laps and then we were exhausted. We turned in our skates and headed off to Shari's for hot cocoa and a dirty worm sundae. (Oreo cookies and ice cream with gummy worms). Our sad story ended up with a pretty happy ending. We had a great time!

Sounds like fun! You got some cute pictures. If you want to go again, my kids love skating- maybe we could get the kids together.
