A Day Out

Yesterday, the boys went to a football game (Navy lost :o( ), Quincy stayed home and wrapped presents while watching a silly Christmas movie on Lifetime, and Julia and I went skating.
This was Julia's first time on skates, but she did great!
She didn't spend all of her time on the wall. She managed to get around people and skate on her own quite a bit and only fell down five times!
(She was counting, I wasn't.)
I haven't been skating in years, so I was a little worried that I wouldn't remember, but it does come back to you. I used Julia as an excuse to stay near the wall at first, but I soon found my skating feet and did quite well. Now, if only I had my own skates, those rentals were a little pinchy!

After skating, we went out for hot chocolate and chicken noodle soup, then we visited this lovely gingerbread house display. I think Julia came home with some ideas for next year.

How much fun! I haven't been on ice skates in, hmmmmm...never mind, let's just say it's been a while! When I was young, Grampa used to flood our back yard so we could skate.
