AWANA 3rd Grade Girls Skate

We left the younger three with Shannon while Daniel and I took the older three to the AWANA 3rd grade girls' skate party in Westminster.

None of us have skated in several years, so it was pretty pathetic as all four of us girls clung to the wall for the first several laps around the rink. Luckily, Daniel (even when he's rusty) is a very good skater. So we all took turns clinging to him and trying not to fall until we got more confident.

It ended up being a lot of fun by the end. Danya even won a cha-cha skate dancing contest! She won a light up smiley face ball that looked really neat when she skated around the rink with it. Gloria smashed her knee into a wall, and Penny fell and hurt her arm a little, but they were both alright after a few minutes. I told Daniel that we should go there sometime for a date night, just us. It was so much fun, and not too expensive. Besides, it reminds me of my only truly fun birthday ever, my Sweet 16 when my parents rented out the skating rink. Good times!

Looks like you had a lot of fun. I haven't been skating in YEARS. The last time I was at our local rink was to see an NHL hockey player. hehe
