I can remember that it was a BEAUTIFUL day and not blistering cold like it had been. This was Ansley's third time to grace the ice and second time to Steinberg. Charli got to join in on the fun this time too. She didn't do much, but it was good to get her out there and see what she could do and watch her big sis!
Ready to go! If only the sun wasn't so bright!
Charli too. She did pretty good at walking around in her boots.
My mom and dad usually join us if there's anything to do with skating and the girls. It's just like old times for them!
I started off just trying to get Ansley to march with her skates on. Unfortunately, the outdoor rink doesn't have any skating aides for the little ones, so the job of helping her around was mine. It was a little daunting at times on the old back and arms, but she finally got the hang of it!
She did LOTS of falling, but she learned how to properly get up and after a little bit she was doing it all on her own. Have you ever seen a newbie skater trying to get up and falling all over themselves?! Yeah, it can get pretty dangerous sometimes, so there's a right way not to hurt yourself AND the others around you.
Charli and Daddy got some snuggle time in watching Ansley.
Eventually, she was rocking and rolling!
Danielle made the trip too! She was a lot of help when my arms and back were getting tired and she took most of these pictures of us. She's a skating natural too. :)
We had a wonderful day and our next trip will most likely be Ansley's 5th birthday party! She is adamant about having a Frozen themed skating party, so we will most likely do it. How can this skating momma say no to that?!
