Another first!

So, Wednesday my sister and I took the kiddos rollerskating. It was the first time for Lily and Payton, but they geared up with their helmets and tiny little skates and were ready to GO! Unfortunately, their feet weren't quite as ready to rumble.









As you can see by the picture - the rest of the skaters are a blur as they speed around the rink. We were goin' at a MUCH slower pace...pausing approximately every 20 seconds for me to pull Lily off the floor. But, she had a sweaty blast. We were out there for at least an hour, and her hair was completely matted to her head by the time the helmet came off. Honestly, I had a great time too and will definitely be taking her back.










She went to bed early and easily that night saying "I'm tired from all dat skating!" The video isn't great - but it does explain why my right arm and lower back hurt so badly!

Hi, to my late night blogging friend! : )

The roller skating looks like lots of fun! I'll tell you...it has been YEARS since I had skates on and if I went now, it would have been ME someone was picking up off the floor every 20 seconds. LOL!

Glad you guys had a good time!

Ha ha...helment, great idea. Of course Annslee falls on purpose and I'd really need the booty padding most. We are going to a skating bday party tonight so I really enjoyed your post. Hope she recovered from being soooo tired!

It does look like it would be a back breaker with all that bending over. What a good mommie. She must have had a ball!

I was a rollerskating waitress for Dis*ney years ago! I love to skate, but haven't been on them in years - Em has only ever done the Fisher Price skates...she's just exiting kindergarten, so you may have inspired me to get her on real skates. Don't worry, I'll adequately prepare my back:)

Looks like a great time!

Have a great weekend.
