FFF - Ice Skating

These pictures were taken last Saturday on Sara Ava's birthday, which is also her cousin Cole's B/D. Sara Ava wanted to go Ice Skating for her B/D and we were taking her until we found out her cousin was going too. So Sara Ava ended up going Ice Skating but not to celebrate her B/D. Tomorrow we are going again with a couple of her friends to celebrate. She is so excited because she loved it!

The 2 oldest boys went when they were little (about 10 yrs ago). They don't remember it at all. So it was like taking all 5 kids for the first time. At first I was going to just watch them because it was sooooo cold. It was 24 degrees outside and I did not want any part of the ice. But, the girls could not even get on the ice with out falling and would immediately get off. I told them let me get my balance and went around a few times and then came back to help them and everyone else for that matter ;0) lol......

Karlton brought Jordan later. Jordan was Wrestling all day long. Karlton had to go and pick him up early because he was not finished when it was time to leave for the party. After I helped Karlton get his balance and teach him how to take off, then it was Jordan's turn. Poor guy! I think he was the most uncoordinated out of us all. He always had to grab me and almost take me down with him.

So here are the pictures of that day.... Most are blurry because it is really hard to stop on the ice and take pictures. I was moving in most of them. Ha!

Sara Ava ready to get on the ice!

She was watching Joel try out the ice for the first time.......

Josiah made it out next..... He ended up loving it and can't wait to go back tomorrow!

Their cousin Kaylee (the blonde) and her friend. Thank goodness for these 2. They helped me with the girls a lot! Sara Ava made me almost fall once. I could not take both girls at once even though I tried. I was sore for days afterwards! Seriously!

Sara Ava watching her cousin Cole get on the ice.... I guess he was pretty funny!

Looks like tons of fun. Ya'll look
good out there. But, I have flash-backs of my last time on the ice. Not a pretty picture. I had
to take your mama to the emergency
room. But, it looks like she has
improved. I stick to roller skates, I have wobbly ankles.
Sara, Glad you had a great Birthday!
Love ya, love ya, love ya,
