Miniature ice skater

Oh gosh. Until a couple of weekends ago, it had been a looooong time since I had ice skated - in fact, not since 2012 when our local ponds froze over. Of course, my ice skates made the move with us from Holland to the USA but as I discovered when I tried to put them back on, my feet have grown yet again with Austin's pregnancy and it was almost painful to squeeze them on. Ollie however fit into them no worries... ;-)

Despite growing up in hot Queensland, I love ice skating. There was a large indoor rink in the city where we lived and (random fact) as an adult, a friend and I decided to learn how to figure skate. Yes, 2 grown women in a rink with a bunch of little kids BUT it was so much fun - not to mention a great workout. We took lessons twice weekly and learned to skate backwards, turn, spin, lunge, mohawk, jump... And a bunch of other terms I've already forgotten the name of, let alone how to do.

On the Sunday before last, I felt like skating again so we made plans to meet up with friends at a nearby outdoor rink. I have been wanting to take Ollie skating and although it was kinda exhausting keeping him upright, it was fun!

Perhaps we'll try again in New York?

    I heart ice skating too, especially with my little girl. I can't wait for my son to be old enough to accompany us! Perhaps in another year!
