Ice Skating

February 19, 2010 · 1 comment

My brother and I took the boys ice skating for the first time today. I hadn’t had ice skates on for YEARS, so not only did they feel weird, I was a bit wobbly! I did alright on the ice, but was thankful my brother is a good skater so he could help out the boys!

We rented skates and I made sure we took their bike helmets (totally afraid they would fall and thunk their heads!).

Matt jumped right on the ice with his little skate-walker thing, and although he seemed like he was running on the ice rather than skating, he did really well! Preston had the technique better, but didn’t move around very much.  I fully expected him to be done sooner than Matt and I wasn’t surprised (but that was ok, because I was ready to get my skates off, too!).

Matt wanted to stay out there forever! We definitely will be taking him back. By the end, he was much more comfortable on the ice and in the skates.

I took some video of them, but I’m still working on getting it edited, so here are some pictures!

Ready to skate!

Awesome! …and if the boys are really interested in skating again, I highly recommend buying them skates down the road. Skating is great!
