Ice Skating

When Jess and Calvin were here at Christmas time, Calvin really wanted to go ice skating. He played hockey growing up, so he wanted to show Tyler how to skate.


Tyler didn’t quite understand how everyone else was just skating around with no problem, when he couldn’t stay up.


We almost had a meltdown, but Daddy convinced him to keep trying.


(Warning: Grandparents may want to look away for these next two!!)

He ended up on Mike’s shoulders for most of the time.



They didn’t have any little skates to fit Kalen, but she still got to get out on the ice.


Everyone took turns giving her rides around the rink.

She loved it! Every time someone dropped her back off to me she was reaching to go back out again!


My dad even got out on the ice too!


Then at the end of our time Tyler got a little better and was skating from Mike to Calvin while holding on to the edge!

We had such a great time! Mike was reminiscing about all the hockey games he played with friends on the lake growing up.


I’m sure we will be doing this again when Tyler gets a little older!

Awwww I love Mike carrying Tyler on his shoulders! Sweet!! Tell those kids don't worry, I'm 31 and still haven't learned how to get anywhere on ice skates. :)
