Ice Skating...

So let's just say that none of us are heading to the Olympics any time soon :)  But for our first ever family ice skating outing, I think we did pretty good.

You would think, that living in Maine, we know how to ice skate. But no, we just never do it.  Hubby went once as a kid, and I went twice(fell both times) as a kid... but that is it.

Here hubby and I are... we only held hands for the photo, is was too risky to go the whole rink like that.
 See, we already let go :)
 The kids had never been before.  They all did awesome...  Here is Becca, she picked it up right away.

 Zach struggled a bit, but he was a trooper and kept getting up from every fall.

 Mason only went around once with hubby and me. That was enough for him.
 Gavin helping Zach... Gavin actually was quite the natural at it and didn't fall once.
 Becca again... that guy in the background with his arms and legs out is hubby :)
 It wasn't quite Noah's thing, but he did well and continued to skate even after he got a blister.
 Becca and myself...
 Mason and me...

I think we need to get some of our own ice skates and head to some local outdoor rinks... great family fun and some exercise too.



  1. Tiff it is always a pleasure to see your family pics! It looks like so much fun was had by everyone. I was just telling hubby last night that I would love to go ice skating just once.It probably would not be pretty as I have trouble staying upright on level ground.LOL! Hugs,Jen

  2. Fun!
    You look terrific. Congrats on your continued success.
    Hugs :)

  3. You're welcome to head to Michigan and visit our backyard ice rink. You all look great on skates! Becca's ice skating skirt is absolutely DARLING!

  4. I used to love to ice skate! We were fortunate to have a pond in the center of the village where I grew up, so we were on it every day! What fun! Your family looks like you're all having a great time on the rink.... what a wonderful activity, especially during the holiday season! And yes, I LOVE Becca's skating skirt as well!!

  5. Are you kidding me? You look like a natural!!
