The twins took it hard when we told them we wouldn't be able to do their hockey/learn to skate program this year. They loved it last year. We did promise we would take them skating a few times this year. Friday after school we surprised them with their very first trip skating outdoors (instead of at the indoor rink). The twins were super rusty and it took us an entire.hour. to get around the rink once... but the boys had a great time. Falls and all. And the Big Guy? Picked it up pretty well for his first time on ice ever. Below are the photos.
