Ice Skating

My sister and her girls have a holiday tradition of ice skating at my parents house.  This year we were able to join in now that our kids are getting a little older.  I am hoping to be able to get some ice skates myself.  It's been many many years since I've been in a pair of skates, but now that the kids are getting into these activities, I want to be THAT Mom, who is active with her kids.  My parents were always active in different sports and got my sister started when we were young. 

For Christmas my parents got all the kids tennis rackets, a ball hopper filled with balls and the big kids received golf clubs (even lefties for Karley) and golf bags.  I see us frequenting the court across the street and the driving range not far from our house.  It's going to be a fun summer!  But for now, we'll enjoy these days while we can.
