Trying out something new

IMG_1844

We’re trying to find a few fun things to do this school vacation week and yesterday it was a trip to a local ice arena (Cyr, for you locals). It was the first time on skates for both kids. And really, it’s about time since their Dad loves hockey and plays with a group of guys once a week.

For dear life

At first there was a lot of hanging on to the side of the rink.

Through the plexi-glass

And feet bent in odd positions just to compensate for over-sized and dull-bladed rental skates.

Delicate balance

Gradually their confidence built.

Confidence

They started to let go of the security.

Look ma, no hands!

And celebrated their success! They can’t wait to go again!
